Description
Future Traders is an innovative, digital trading game in which players compete with peers to make the most profits. Future Traders employs insistent design and scaffolded gameplay to encourage a multi-perspectival understanding of financial markets, one that helps students better understand the complex and sometimes contradictory strategies that ultimately determine financial success. Designed to be portable, persistent, and fun, Future Traders is an interdisciplinary collaboration between faculty in the Strome College of Business (Finance) and the College of Arts and Letters (English). It demonstrates how complex issues of financial literacy can be taught through digital gaming.
