Lessons in personal finance and economics are delivered through interactive computer sessions that can be used as classroom supplements, homework assignments, or as a resource students may use independently to enhance their understanding. Students can also learn the basics of scarcity, resources and markets through podcasts that can be downloaded from the Fed website and, soon, through iTunes. Short videos produced by college students are available on the subject of opportunity cost. New videos will be added to the collection each semester. Finally, most lessons available on the Fed website are accompanied by interactive white board applications. SchoolTube Recording
