Getting started


This set of digital activities is for Year 7 – 8 students. Each activity is available for download at the MoneySmart Teaching Resource Centre. The activities can be used in a variety of pedagogical settings and are suited to a range of groupings.

The learning design features branching scenarios which provide opportunities for students to role play within a scenario, make decisions on mobile phone use and then see the consequences of their actions. Through the use of status meters students are encouraged to reflect on their mobile phone use and the views of a peer group within the activity, then think about how their parents would react to the decisions they made within the scenario.

Positive behaviors are reinforced with the visual help of these data meters throughout the scenarios with references to checking with parents or other adults for advice and guidance and locating information on how to get help from your mobile phone provider or

other agencies. On completion students can repeat the activity making different decisions to change the way they use the mobile phone and improve the overall outcome of the scenario. Some scenarios feature an interactive slider which allows them to experiment with mobile phone usage to see the consequences on their plan.

Activity duration is approximately 15 minutes each, although this may vary depending on whether students are undertaking them with an adult or as a self guided activity. This set of activities can be used on a computer or iPad.

The activities have been designed to be used in any of three ways:



  • as part of the MoneySmart Teaching Primary and Secondary professional learning packages’ units of work,

  • as standalone activities for use in the classroom, or

  • as a tool for engaging parents/carers in their child’s learning at home.

Besides these Teacher notes the front page of each activity provides links to:

  • Parent notes

  • Curriculum mapping

  • National Consumer and Financial Literacy Framework mapping

  • End user specifications

  • Contact details

  • Copyright information

Preparation and delivery


The activities have been designed for flexible classroom delivery so that teachers and students can use them in a range of ways to suit different teaching and learning needs. They can be used individually or as a suite of activities and can be used to complement existing units of work.

When instructing students on how to approach the activities it is suggested that you include the following advice:



  • In the activity you will play the role of a person within a scenario or story. You will be making decisions for that person based on what you think you would do with your mobile phone in that situation.

  • Each time you make a decision about using the mobile phone you will see how your 'friends' react in the scenario by checking the 'friend status' meter. Sometimes these friends will be happy with your decision and at other times they will disagree with it.

  • Decisions you make will affect your mobile phone's data usage. Look for the summaries of data usage as you work through the scenario.

  • You will have the chance to reflect on your decisions using the 'rate yourself' meter. At the end of the activity once you have received a final account of how you went in the scenario, you will be able to use the parent status meter to reflect on how your parents might feel about the choices you've made.

  • During the scenario there will be some advice from other people such as parents or teachers. Remember to read through this advice because this contains important information. There is also a summary at the end so you can find out more about the things covered in a scenario.

Ideas for delivery


The activities can be undertaken by students working through the scenarios solo, in small groups, or as a whole class making decisions together.

Some activities feature an account of data usage at the end. Ask students to note their data usage at the end of the activity and compare their results with other students in the class. Encourage students with high data usage to try the activity again once they have been debriefed on how to minimise data use.

When students have worked through the activity discuss issues that have arisen through the scenario such as the importance of mobile phone security, the risks of in-app purchasing, or the potential consequences of entering competitions.

Agree on some key take away messages or learnings with the class. For younger students it is suggested these should include:



  • Pre-paid mobile plans ensure that you don't spend too much money on your phone;

  • If you have a problem or if you are unsure what to do, ask a parent or another adult;

  • The mobile phone service provider should be contacted by parents/other adults to seek advice on problems;

  • If the mobile service provider is not able to resolve a problem there are agencies which can help.

Enduring understandings and deeper learnings


The five activities cover the following concepts in relation to mobile phones:

  • Informed responsible choices around mobile plans and use can save you money AND/OR pre-paid mobile plans can save you money.

  • You can access help from parents, providers or other agencies when mobile issues arise.

  • Data usage and spending is the responsibility of the user and can be expensive.

  • Scams, spam and cyberbullying can be avoided through secure and safe usage.

Activity topics

PLEASE NOTE: All activities are simulated within the scenarios. There is no direction or requirement to subscribe to real apps or services, make calls on a mobile phone, or send SMS messages.


Key learning areas: English, Mathematics

Advertising


The scenario in this activity provides students with options to subscribe to apps 'FriendSpy' and 'WhereRU' and to enter a 'CruzeShoes' competition. If students decide to subscribe, their 'personal data' is given to advertisers who send spam SMS. The activity demonstrates that giving away personal data such as your images, location and contact details is an invitation to advertisers who use various techniques to influence purchasing including sending spam SMS.

Student learnings


Through this activity students will be able to:

  • identify how advertisers seek to influence consumer decisions;

  • recognise and avoid spam and scams;

  • practice safe and responsible behaviours in using a mobile phone;

  • identify offers that are ‘too good to be true’;

  • find and access advice and support (through their parents/adults) from their mobile service provider if they have an issue with a mobile phone;

  • understand which agencies to contact if there are issues.

Entertainment


In this scenario students have a mobile phone plan of $29 with no data included. They are given the opportunity to access a number of entertainment options including watching a video, installing and playing the 'Wackyville game' and making in-app purchases. These options, and when and where they choose to access them, have an impact on their mobile phone charges.

Student learnings


Through this activity students will be able to:

  • recognise that a mobile plan will have limits for calls, text and data;

  • identify where and how to access entertainment options to minimise data usage;

  • recognise that in-app purchases can cost real money;

  • practice responsible behaviours in using a mobile phone;

  • find and access advice and support (through their parents/adults) from their mobile service provider if they have an issue with a mobile phone;

  • understand which agencies to contact if there are issues.

Premium services

In this scenario students find out that nothing is really free, and if it sounds too good to be true it probably is! They have the choice to vote in 'Top Voice' for their favourite act via SMS to receive free ringtones and wall papers. After entering their mobile phone number for the chance to 'win heaps of free prizes' they receive a lot of spam messages. The scenario also explores what a premium service is and how to subscribe and unsubscribe from one.


Student learnings


Through this activity students will be able to:

  • practice safe and responsible behaviours when using a mobile phone;

  • recognise that providing personal data online may have consequences such as receiving a lot of spam;

  • define a premium service and demonstrate how to subscribe and unsubscribe to one;

  • find and access advice and support (through their parents/adults) from their mobile service provider if they have an issue with a mobile phone;

  • understand which agencies to contact if there are issues.

Security

Different security issues are explored in this scenario including giving away personal data by entering a competition, subscribing to a 'dodgy app' that steals data, and leaving a mobile phone unattended in a public place. Students are provided with opportunities to respond to each security issue and see the potential consequences of their decisions such as extra mobile charges, theft from a bank account and cyberbullying.


Student learnings


Through this activity students will be able to:

  • recognise and avoid spam and scams;

  • secure a mobile and reflect on the potential consequences of an unsecured mobile;

  • practice safe and responsible behaviours in using a mobile phone;

  • find and access advice and support (through their parents/adults) from their mobile service provider if they have an issue with a mobile phone;

  • understand which agencies to contact if there are issues.

Social media

This scenario involves making decisions about a range of activities on a mobile phone including managing social networking features and sharing videos and photos. In this scenario students are on a $29 pre-paid plan and can run out of credit or even incur extra data charges.


Student learnings


Through this activity students will be able to:

  • identify that use of social media will have an impact on their data use and credit;

  • understand that there may be savings in accessing Wi – Fi instead of using their mobile phone plan data;

  • practice responsible behaviours in using a mobile phone;

  • find and access advice and support (through their parents/adults) from their mobile service provider if they have an issue with a mobile phone;

  • understand which agencies to contact if there are issues.

21st Century Skills

Life for children in the 21st Century is much more complex than it was for children of any other age, and it is getting more complex. Today’s children need four generic skills to enable them to grow into mature, well functioning adults. These are:



  • Ways of thinking: Creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making and learning

  • Ways of working: Communication and collaboration.

  • Tools for working: Information and communications technology (ICT) and information literacy.

  • Skills for living in the world: Citizenship, life and career and personal and social responsibility.

These skills are embedded within the five activities which have been designed to support the development of consumer and financial literacy skills in secondary school.
