Educator Training & Webinars

Along with the Stock Market Game, we offer an educator

training workshop. Our workshop on the Stock Market Game focuses on learning the basics of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds as well as running through the basic functions of the interface.

Our workshop goes well beyond learning about the Stock Market Game. You will learn the simple strategies to pass onto your students for building wealth over the long term and also learn how to help your students develop the real life skills they need to succeed – to be able to think and choose responsibly as consumers, savers, investors, citizens, members of the workforce and effective participants in a global economy.
