How I Use It
I used the BizKid$ videos to introduce finance concepts in a Business Math class. This worked great for students who had little knowledge of financial literacy. The site provides lesson plans, along with activities and games.
My Take
Overall, I found this website very useful. The videos were entertaining; however, they were a bit lengthy - at about 28 minutes. The students enjoyed the games. This site would fit the Augmentation category of the SAMR model. The site also provides additional resources for students and teachers.
