Games can be a powerful and effective method for teaching students important money management skills – they learn while having fun and competing with others. It's long been understood that young children learn a lot through play, but the learning doesn't need to stop as we get older. Teens and even adults can learn while playing games. Many experts feel that the components of well-made video games, including immediate feedback, rewards, motivation and goal-setting, can be a strong fit for the high-technology, global world in which today’s children live. Games are also a great tool to use in employee volunteering efforts in your community.
