Budget Hero – Updated

Impressive. American Public Media has already updated their Budget Hero program to incorporate the bailout and stimulus package and their effects on the economy. If you haven’t played around with Budget Hero yet, it is well worth the time and students really enjoy it (I first learned about Budget Hero from one of my sophomores last semester, he had some down-time and found it on his own and was playing it).

Budget Hero would be a great addition to economics, current events, statistics, math, and government courses and results would provide for rich discussion of the challenges which currently face our nation.
