Abstract

In this paper, we present a simulation game about financial management for children to help them learn significant concepts in the finance education. Different from traditional delivery of paper-based knowledge, simulation games can provide a number of opportunities to control and manipulate something in the virtual game environment. Thus, students, particularly children, can experience what they hardly do in the real life. Based on the design rationale, we are developing a prototype system which contains several functions about financial management. For example, students can learn the concept of working for earning money, note taking, saving money in the bank, and investing in the stock market.
