Hi Julia Milch 

This is one of my biggest obstacles to overcome. Finance is boring. I'd like to make the material interesting and relatable, and the process experiential. I think taking a "hands on" approach to introducing (experiencing) the information will be way more engaging than simply presenting the ideas and hoping they stick.
I've seen some great examples of "gamified" financial learning that already exists and I think there is room for collaboration there.

I love your suggestion to introduce a storytelling aspect - I've thought about this a bit and am brainstorming ways to integrate case studies and create shared learning experiences (tutoring, for example).

Hi Wingee Sin 

I really like your suggestion for integrating a 'work for chores' option in lieu of the tasks for younger users. How young would you suggest?

All of these suggestions are SO helpful. I'm thinking of ways the younger/older students could team up (sort of like tutoring), and how parents/families can take be more proactive.

Elders/disabled individuals who need help performing tasks is an interesting approach. I wonder if there is a way to relate the task back to the learning content so that it becomes a holistic experiential learning platform.

Can you provide any insights into what educational content I should think to include outside of the "earning/saving/investing" realm? The financial environment is extremely complex (as I'm sure you know), how simple or how complex should the ideas presented be?

Darcet Preciat This device is AMAZING and would be so instrumental in reaching these inaccessible/remote areas. Access to the materials and information without internet is a definite must.

I would also love to have the tasks on the marketplace appear in real-time. Perhaps I could implement some sort of scheduling plug-in to allow users to pre-arrange.
