The future briefs are designed to be used as a problem-solving, group learning experience. Teachers can choose to use them as a one-off lesson to develop students’ problem-solving skills, and creative and critical thinking.
The process of undertaking the future briefs will make students aware of their values , thinking, skills, and behaviours about money/moni, financial identity , sustainability, and capability.
The future briefs support a problem-based approach to learning. Some of the design elements for this future-focused thinking can be attributed to the future-focus principle of The New Zealand Curriculum.
