MoneyIsland from Young Americans Bank

MoneyIsland from Young Americans Bank | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

MoneyIsland is an online environment that teaches kids how to make the most of their financial future. Once described as "Super Mario Brothers meets Monopoly," this one-of-a-kind educational tool makes it fun to learn and fun to earn. Designed for ages 8 - 14. When kids play MoneyIsland, they enter a virtual world that not only makes learning fun, but also tracks and encourages their progress. As they go on quests to fantastic destinations like the Eiffel Tower and Atlantis, they learn real-life principles of financial responsibility. The journey doesn't end when they complete MoneyIsland and earn their real-life rewards. This website includes additional games, videos, contests, and more that continue both the fun and the learning. After all, a true guru's education is never complete.

MinyanLand - Fun Way for Kids To Learn Economics with Hoofy & Boo | UDL & ICT in education | Scoop.it

MinyanLand was created as a platform to entertain and educate a young generation so they understand the concept of a market and the basics of economics and finance on a real world level. The economic system of MinyanLand mimics the real-life pricing of general goods and services. As players participate in the system, their actions will affect the overall MinyanLand economy. This is how they will learn. To keep the economy stabilized, for instance, players must stay healthy by eating on a regular basis. MinyanLand will also offer incentives to encourage such behavior as charitable giving.
