ECONOMICS AND PERSONAL FINANCE
The Virginia Department of Education and Virtual Virginia have worked together to create a comprehensive, cutting-edge, online program aligned to the Virginia Standards of Learning for Economics and Personal Finance. The course supports school compliance with the new requirement that each student in Virginia complete an economics and personal finance course before graduation. This online course can be used as self-paced and auto-graded instruction with minimal teacher intervention or as a textbook replacement for teacher-led instruction. Includes cartoons, interactive graphics, and a myriad of interactions and assessments that enrich the learning experience and that provide reteaching opportunities. An overarching game also allows students to practice their newly acquired skills through characters who make economic decisions in a simulated environment. The course is available to all Virginia schools and was developed using standard SCORM modules, which allow deployment through any compliant learning management system.
