A 2011 Award of Excellence winner from Tech & Learning Magazine, EconEdLive! presents students with new ways of learning difficult economic concepts, such as the time value of money and comparative advantage, as well as vital personal finance lessons, such as the effects of inflation and the importance of saving. These interactive learning tools feature readings, stories, and Q&A (including pre/post tests and checks for understanding). Many lessons have complementary print lessons, offering a “mix and match” approach to serve a variety of teaching and learning styles. EconEdLive also includes economics and personal finance podcasts in audio or video formats, personal finance chat simulations for students, and quarterly professional development webcasts.
