This website is all about a Finnish Academy funded research project concentrating on financial literacy and games at the University of Vaasa.
The aim of this research project is to develop game-based financial education interventions in schools and evaluate their effectiveness. The research project builds on an existing collaborative network that shares long-standing experience in developing game-based interventions for educational settings, and expands this network in significant ways getting end-users more involved in the project. Together the research team with partners will build tools to evaluate the impact of such interventions on students’ financial knowledge and behavior. The study also includes comparisons between different game-based approaches and their combinations. Further, the group will develop innovative ways to measure the behavioral outcomes of students by utilizing games, game platforms, and gameplay analytics.
