The Nashville Branch of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta is committed to providing quality learning opportunities for educators.

This hands-on, technology-focused session will highlight the Federal Reserve's wide array of free resources, many of which are new and improved, that will take you beyond the textbook in your classroom. The program will incorporate a variety of tools that focus on personal finance, economics, entrepreneurship, and business topics in support of Common Core:

  • Online data tools: maps, charts, graphs, and more
  • Infographics, blogs, newsletters
  • Primary and secondary sources
  • Mobile apps
  • Online student learning modules
  • Video clips and assessments

Bring your own mobile device to take full advantage of this session. Join us to go online and beyond the textbook!
