Abstract

In this paper, a My-Investment system was proposed to facilitate students' financial management learning in a game-based environment, in which each student owns a virtual pet and are responsible for a better life through learning financial management. To get some cues to understand the effect of the system, a case study was conducted through collecting and analyzing 21 primary students' interview data. The results show that My-Investment system can help students learn the knowledge of financial management, and the pets in the game can enhance their motivation to learn the knowledge of financial management.
