NGPF is pleased to announce that our partnership with Nearpod has expanded! Now you can find NGPF’s 9th World Cup course in Nearpod’s library, just in time to celebrate Financial Literacy Month with your students. Nearpod is an interactive instructional platform that gives teachers real-time insight into student learning and NGPF uses the platform to facilitate our virtual professional development and deliver our classes.
Building on an existing partnership through which NGPF classes on Nearpod have been taken more than four million times by students, the new classes coming to Nearpod include taxes, auditing, savings, paying for school, types of credit, credit management, investing, insurance and budgeting in a nine week course. “The evidence for integrating financial literacy into high school classrooms is clear, and we’re proud to expand Next Gen content on our platform,” said Pep Carerra, CEO of Nearpod. Most importantly, we are proud that this robust curriculum will be available on our platform for free. We believe all students deserve access to this life-changing curriculum, and we are excited to provide educators with engaging content that will have a lasting impact on the lives of their students.”
