    I’ve been using this for years in my Personal Finance class. Students clove the content, games, and readings. Financial Football is a great hit with them, “Here we go Steelers, here we go”. Peter Kappas, Freedom Area Middle School, Freedom,PA

    I was introduced to this resource in a session at #JSNEC19. I have not yet used it with my middle schooler, but I plan to as soon as I get home. I was impressed with variety of engaging resources for both teachers and students.

    Around the world students play soccer and read comics. Visa has created streaming high interest games and a platform of various resources, including multi-lingual comics, about personal financial choices that immediately help students feel like winners or give suggestions on how to make better choices. Visas appeal as a company is well respected and its timely approach to financial literacy will demand equal attention from any users as they delight in the information provided. The multi-disciplinary ability to integrate these products in various classrooms easily will become self evident as the 21st century educator embraces the edu-gaming mentality.

    I’ve been using this site with my Personal Finance class for years. Easy to use with students of all learning levels and skills . I teach grade 8. The reading and vocabulary are easily adapted for the learner and the games are always a hit. Students take to it easily.
