Making money central to the learning experience

<p>In this edition of Learning World we see how three approaches are making the daily handling of money and financial affairs a core subject in schools.</p> <p>In Britain we discover how one college in Bournemouth is using something called the <a href="http://www.tenner.org.uk" rel="external">'Tenner Challenge'</a> to show pupils how to turn a profit and do something useful, too.</p> <p>In Thailand we see one way the nation is tackling the fallout from the financial crisis, by setting up student banks in schools and teaching the young to save.</p> <p>Find out more details about the Student Bank Project on the <a href="http://plan-international.org/where-we-work/asia/thailand" rel="external">Plan Thailand</a> and <a href="http://www.wise-qatar.org/content/student-bank-project" rel="external">WISE</a> websites.</p> <p>Finally, we meet an inspirational financial educator and author, <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alvin_Hall":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alvin_Hall" rel="external">Alvin Hall</a>. From poverty in southern Florida he made his way through Yale and now lives on New York’s Madison Avenue. Today he teaches others how to be as successful as him. </p> <p>Check out his website <a href="http://alvinhall.com":http://alvinhall.com" rel="external">here</a>.</p> <p>We are always keen to hear from you please share your thoughts and experiences with us on our social media pages. </p> <p><a href="http://www.facebook.com/learning.world" rel="external">Learning World on Facebook</a></p> <p><a href="http://twitter.com/euronews_LW" rel="external">Learning World on Twitter</a></p>
