It is accessed via the internet, and offers information for students to learn from as well as interactive ways for them to contribute and participate. To do this, the platform uses a range of interactive multimedia content focusing on issues relating to youth rights and responsibilities, financial literacy, and managing social and financial enterprises. It builds on Aflatoun’s philosophy of learning by doing and uses game mechanics, known as ‘gamification’, which allows youth to be rewarded for their participation, sharing and learning. It can be used as a stand-alone learning tool, but also complements well activities in classrooms or clubs. Several topics addressed are: my community, my goals and dreams, my career, my rights and responsibilities, diversity, money and well-being, borrowing money, being a cool consumer, planning and budgeting tools, and social and financial enterprises.
