A Network Game for Life-cycle Education

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The main objective of the project "A network game for life-cycle education" (ANGLE) is to promote and enhance younger generations’ Economic and Financial Literacy (FL), adopting a life-cycle perspective to help the young to consider a long time horizon and to think about the future consequences of their decisions. Indeed, FL is basic knowledge possibly to be acquired early in life to make individual financial decisions better informed and more effective. FL provides the basic principles for crucial passages in the life cycle, such as the transition from education to work, a more effective individual participation in increasingly dynamic and technologically dominated labor markets as well as re-training/learning processes.

ANGLE focuses on ways in which knowledge can be acquired by using innovative technologies of education, such as games and on-line tools that allow learning through active involvement and participation.

The project is funded by the European Union through the Erasmus+ program (call 2020). The project started in September 2020 and will last three years. Tilburg University closely cooperates with Nibud (National Institute for Family Finance Information), the other Dutch partner in the project.
