In short, Game-Based Learning builds “muscle-memory” that becomes part of you, part of your automatic “reflex”, the type you need for real-life skills.
Since the purpose of Game-Based Learning is to make acquiring and retaining information more accessible, it is one of the most effective ways to learn complex topics including financial strategies. The foundation of The Family Bank was created based on the principles of Game-Based Learning, where we believe learning should be a chosen experience, not a duty. When experiencing The Family Bank, it is crucial to have our students take away and implement the life-changing skills they learn in order to better their lives and families/community.
The proven and powerful strategies that are taught at the Family Bank event are meant to be implemented, not simply memorized as with traditional learning. The ability for attendees to leave our event with the skills to immediately implement the Family Bank concept in their lives was our top priority, and one we are excited to have achieved.
