Feb 22, 2021 – The 2021 Cha-Ching Financial Accreditation (CCFA) National Conference goes underway on Saturday 20th February involving up to 100 excellent elementary level teachers from Jakarta and Sidoarjo. The event was opened by Mr. Marc Fancy, Executive Director of the Prudence Foundation based in Hong Kong, Mr. Siddharta Moersjid, Chairman of the Board Prestasi Junior Indonesia, and Ms. Nuranisa Putri Matahari, Community Investment Manager Prudential Indonesia. The opening remarks delivered online were the start of the inaugural CCFA conference, scheduled to be held over three Saturdays and focusing on financial literacy education – it provides professional development related to those strategies and tools available to educators to deliver an impactful learning experience for their students. On Saturday 20th February teachers were provided with training related to the Revolution of Education provided by Munif Chatib, M.Pd, Lecturer Faculty of Training and Education at UNUSA. This was followed by an additional training session delivered by Didi Diarsa, CEO Code Margonda Creative Hub which focused on Collaboration. The content of his session created significant discussion and ideas generated by the teachers to enhance collaborative teaching practice.
The conference continues on Saturday, 27th February with the engagement of Prof. Dr. Suyantno, M.Pd, Lecturer Faculty of Language and Art UNESA. He takes the creative process one step further by providing the CCFA teachers with a session on ‘Turning Creative Ideas into Learning Media’. PJI believes that the Cha-Ching Curriculum can be augmented by the introduction of creative ideas by the teachers and the dissemination of these ideas across the CCFA community. Completing the session on Day 2 is Ms. Ligwina Hananto – a perfect fit for the conference as she is Lead Trainer at QM Financial. Her session focuses on the New Age of Financial Literacy and investigates digital considerations.
The final day of the conference takes place on Saturday 6th March. This day is dedicated to pooling all of the information delivered by the four speakers together in a series of collaboration showcases. Each of these showcases will focus on the creation of new ideas by cohorts of teachers utilizing a collaborative approach to produce education media relevant to financial literacy. The objective is, by the end of the conference, to have a ‘bank’ of resources produced by teachers which may be used to augment the Cha-Ching Curriculum and ensure an impactful student learning experience.
The CCFA initiative is an idea developed by the Prudence Foundation and implemented in Indonesia, Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam. It is delivered with the endorsement of the OECD and a collaboration between Prudential Indonesia, Prudence Foundation, and Prestasi Junior Indonesia. Experienced and committed teachers of the Cha-Ching Curriculum in schools located in Sidoarjo Regency and DKI Jakarta Province have been selected to participate and earn certification.
