  • Budget Hero 2.0
    http://marketplace.publicradio.org/features/budget_hero/
    Think you might do better than the president and congressional leaders in choosing what government spending to cut—or revenues to raise? Budget Hero 2.0, a new computer game produced by the nonprofit American Public Media, shows players just how difficult it might be to carry out their grand policy objectives and still keep the government from either becoming irrelevant or going broke. The game starts in the year 2021, based on Congressional Budget Office numbers showing what happens to the government’s budget if there is no change in current policy. Players, by using their policy cards, change the course of history. Before clicking on a policy, players can check out the pros and cons of the issue.
  • KWHS (Knowledge@Wharton High School)
    http://kwhs.wharton.upenn.edu/
    The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business has launched KWHS, a version of its Knowledge@Wharton Web site, geared toward high school students and their teachers. The site is intended to inform students that “business underlies everything they may want to do.” There are lots of videos, including interviews with young people describing how they’ve used business skills and started their own companies. The site also has a version of the Online Training and Investment Simulator game that lets students choose a portfolio and compete against other students. And because one of the big hurdles to learning about business is deciphering its language, KWHS has a video glossary through which Wharton professors explain the terms using examples high schoolers can relate to. For example, one professor tells students what an “angel investor” is, using Justin Timberlake’s character in The Social Network. “Opportunity cost” sounds abstract until students hear a management professor offer up an angst-inducing example of someone confronted with a choice: whether to go to a great party or to a movie with someone special.
