Aline Abigail commented on Educational Games + Community Outreach

Also love the online/offline hybrid going on here. Games like these will be a very useful and fun way for everyone to learn financial skills especially these days where most people, even kids, have their own tablets or smartphones. It could also be an engaging way for family, or colleagues to spend time together, where they/we can exchange ideas or advice on how best to manage our finances.

Aline Abigail commented on Students Up Their Game With In-Class Currency

This is something that schools should definitely consider implementing in their curriculum or just in their culture especially to elementary students who are still so open about topics like this. Learning-by-doing is still one of the best ways of teaching instead of just having lessons memorized. I like the way the teacher, Matt, also went about in empowering his students with financial knowledge. It doesn't feel heavy on the students side like a subject would feel, but rather they would get a feel for what takes place when they start working and how it feels like to spend money you earned on your own rather than spending money you asked from your parents. Great teacher!
