The Kansas Council on Economic Education is sponsoring a two-day conference titled “Investing Tools for the Classroom” on Wednesday, June 2nd and Thursday, June 3rd. Kansas Teachers in grades 4-12 are encouraged to attend this virtual conference being held at five of the Kansas Regents Universities: ESU, FHSU, KSU, PSU & WSU. Free resources and training will be provided for integrating “Investor Education” into the classroom. The conference is designed to give teachers a strong comfort level with investing topics and will be especially helpful to current Stock Market Game Advisors, personal finance, economics, business, math and FACS teachers.
As part of this event, The ETF Store’s V.P. of Finance, Nathan Geraci, will be presenting a session titled “Introduction to Exchange Traded Funds” which will provide an overview on what exchange traded funds (ETFs) are, their history, the advantages they can have compared to mutual funds, and the benefits of using ETFs in investment portfolios.
For teachers interested in attending this event, you can register online here. There is no cost for teachers to attend this conference and continental breakfast and lunch will be provided both days.
