EAF Evaluation is an academically-backed approach to evaluating the pedagogical design of a product. EAF evaluators assess the product using criteria that covers the most essential pedagogical aspects in the learning experience.
Moneytainment Box provides multiple different activities for different age and skill levels. Box has something to offer for everyone. Activities provide different kinds of angles on financial literacy and playful games and activities to get familiar with the basic financial terms and concepts. Although the learning process is much guided by the teacher (Tutor), the materials give some freedom for the students to organize their group work.
The open-ended and creative activities give a possibility to use imagination and use the learned concepts in a meaningful way. The learning experience is quite teacher led, but also gives good amount of responsibility for the students for example in assigning the roles or planning group work. The materials also suggest a simple self-assessment for students after each activity, which allows the students to reflect and follow their own progress.
The activities can be done in a predetermined order to follow a progressive learning path but it is up to the teacher to decide what is done and in what order. Some of the activities have multiple difficulty levels as new rules or parts are added. That way the activities are familiar but the experience is new. Games can be played multiple times.
Majority of the activities are done in small groups or the whole class together. Most of the activities include a session where the activity is gone through together with the whole group afterward so it can be reflected together and students can share their own thoughts and learnings. The sizes of small groups (usually 4-6 students) are meaningful and well adjusted for the tasks. The teacher can give more exercises and challenge to the groups which progress faster.
