FIL – Finances In Everyday Life

Finances In Everyday Life

According to the PIAAC survey [Skills Matters, 2017] and PISA [2016, for non-OECD countries, where PIAAC panel wasn`t conducted], proficiency in reading & counting varies between countries and socio-demographic characteristics of respondents (which has influenced our choice of the project’s target group). The most important factors named are: sex, educational level, age, income and nationality [PIAAC data; GFLS, Mitchell&Lusardi, 2016].

Our project “Finances in everyday life” wants to extend competences of adult educators in effective teaching of finance and digital skills by preparing Open Educational Resources (OER) containing innovative, customised learning courses and, after implementing these, to improve the financial potential of people from disadvantaged backgrounds by increasing their digital and financial literacy, defined as: “a combination of awareness, knowledge, skill, attitude and behaviour necessary to make sound financial decisions and ultimately achieve individual financial well-being.”
