Abstract

In this paper, we describe a simulation-based game environment, My-Investment, which is developed to foster primary students' financial management learning. Before introducing the detailed functions of the My-Investment system, we elaborate two design guidelines to underpin the system development, including fostering participation cycle as well as offering learning by doing opportunities. According to the two principles, six major functions are developed in the My-Investment system.
