In response to the dramatic shift to virtual learning in schools worldwide, FTE is adapting in-person classroom economics activities for use in online, synchronous classes. Some of the lessons work with just a web conferencing platform, like Zoom, while others use applications such as Pear Deck and Moblab*.
FTE staff are working continuously to update/adapt our full catalog of activities to the virtual learning environment. New activities will be added as they are ready.
Please send us feedback on activities as you run them in your classes. FTE staff are always looking to improve the effectiveness of lessons.
