Dr Javier Sierra has been awarded one of the five BBVA’s financial education grants. These grants are awarded to projects seeking to resolve challenges from the pandemic. His project focuses on the design and implementation of an experiment in different schools in Castile and Leon. Its goal is to measure the effectiveness of a simulation based on active learning as a strategy to teach financial education.
This initiative will study the effects that practical experience and applying theories to real cases could have on students’ learning for topics related to financial education. The results of the research project will serve to learn more about young people’s educational weaknesses in this subject, possible problems related to their learning, and the potential of simulations as an instrument to reinforce teaching in this field.
We congratulate Dr Sierra for his excellent initiative.
