Financial Literacy Online Instruction

Summary: The FDIC has a nice online banking unit. 

Students will have to register first.  Then sit through a demonstration on how to use the menus.  But, this unit replaces a large portion of my text and it's excellent.  You'll also need the latest version of Adobe Flash.  The program is also available in Spanish.  You can have the text read aloud too. 

I believe students have to use online tools to stay competitive.  This is an excellent use of the Web to teach.
