Registrations are open
To register for the Game, sign up or log into MyASX, go to the 'ASX Schools Sharemarket Game' link and complete the Game entry form. You can then add your student syndicates.
If you haven't used the Game previously, here is a Quickstart guide (2MB) to help with registering yourself as a teacher and then setting up your students.
Bringing the world into your classroom
The Game brings the world into your classroom. It's a great opportunity to have your students interacting online, in what is as close to real life share trading as you can get.
While you teach them about the sharemarket, your students can put what they are learning into practice as they are given a virtual $50,000 to trade for 10 weeks.
As a result of playing the Game your students will:
- develop their knowledge of the sharemarket
- learn how to research companies
- discover the importance of wise investment decisions
- learn more about investing which is beneficial for their future
The Game can be part of a school subject or an extra-curricular activity offered to students.
It is free to play and as a bonus, students can win great cash prizes.
There are teacher lesson plans and resources available via your Game Home page. You will be able to access these once you have registered for the Game.
We also have a teacher resources pack that was sent out to all secondary schools on 7 February. It has posters for your classroom for Game 1, 2014. If you didn't receive the pack or would like an additional one, send an email request to email@example.com.
Student lessons are available on the Getting Started page.
How the Game works
- You register as a teacher and sign your students up to play the Game.
- Students compete either individually or in a group of 2 to 4 students.
- Students do research and decide which companies they will invest in.
- They buy and sell shares 'online' in any of the nominated ASX listed companies
- Orders to buy or sell shares can be placed at any time. Orders will be executed when ASX TradeMatch® is open (10 am to 4 pm)
- Available prices and quantities of shares from the real sharemarket will be taken from TradeMatch only.
