Kummara collaborated with Financial Services Authority of Indonesia (Otoritas Jasa Keuangan/OJK) to develop a boardgame called “SIKAPIUANGMU”. The main purpose of this boardgame is to educate student in grade 4 and 5 in Indonesia about financial products, such as Bank, Insurance, Pension Fund, Pawnshop, Financing and Capital Market. The learning materials are taken from “Mengenal Jasa Keuangan” book.
The first external playtest is held in SDN 01 Menteng on October 2nd 2015. 40 children, consists of 20 4th graders and 20 5 graders joined the playtest. The playtest session was fun and all the students played the game enthusiastically. At debriefing session after the game, students also showed their understanding about the learning material.
As a preparation for the implementation of “Mengenal Jasa Keuangan” book and “SIKAPIUANGMU” boardgame, OJK held Training of Trainers (ToT) on November 12-13th 2015 at Hotel Borobudur Jakarta. There are 70 teachers from all over Indonesia joined the training. During the ToT, teachers were introduced to the learning materials that will be delivered to students through the books, and also by lecture from financial industries experts.
Play session was held on November 12th 2015 to introduce “SIKAPIUANGMU” to the teacher. For 2 hours, teachers played the game and they showed high enthusiasm. Unfortunately, this situation made the session less conducive because lack of coach so there was a bit of trouble during the coaching session. In the future, we need to add more coach and add intensive training for trainers before teaching the game to the teachers.
Through this Training of Trainers session, we hope that teachers understand how to play “SIKAPIUANGMU” and teach it to the students so it makes them understand more about the learning materials. We also got feedbacks from experts that tried the game to help this game develop even better in the future. At the end of Training of Trainers, all teachers got 1 set of “SIKAPIUANGMU” boardgame to play it with their students in school.
