Even in VWs, Teens can get credit cards

Experian, one of the world’s leading providers of financial service and assistance, has teamed up with the 3D-game application developer Caspian Learning to create Creditability in Britain.

This serious game for teens takes aim at educating them on, hmmm, racking up debt I guess. Creditability walks teenagers through the various stages of financial management. Using a virtual environment, kids can learn about money, borrowing, and spending. The advantage of the virtual environment is that the students walk through four different environments: university, a shopping area, TV studios and a village. Challenges are presented in each area which teach the value of financial management and the risks and rewards of credit.
