Fontys Hogescholen Through which glasses are you looking? The goal is that students learn to commute between economic aspects in daily life and economic jargon. This commuting is what we call looking through economic glasses. The problem is that in the economics class there is little attention for recognizing economic aspects in daily life (Boot,2006).
Fontys Hogescholen My research My solution: To solve this problem I start with concrete images. These are a medium to connect daily life to the world of economics. The literature shows that economics is less boring and abstract when images are used. (Sexton, 2006).
Fontys Hogescholen Results Methods: I have done research in my class. The students (N=11) received instructions to make a poster on an economic aspect. This poster was to be clarified orally. Conclusion: The preliminary conclusion is that the students are capable of putting on economic glasses and are economical!
