Managing their money

Think you can make all the correct decisions in today’s economy? SPENT is an online game that puts the student in the driver’s seat.  They need to find a job, pay bills, and make every day financial decision.  Can they last the month without going broke?  Which would be the best type of employment? Do they want health insurance and where do they want to live (closer to work costs more yet there is a smaller commuting expense). As they continue in the game, their financial growth (or decline) is ever present on the screen! I would see this as opportunity for middle/high school students. (From Free Technology for Teachers)
