Gamifying College Readiness and Financial Literacy

Gamifying College Readiness and Financial Literacy

D2D Fund partnered with BlackSmith LLC andRegions Bank to launch SummerQuest: Birmingham, a college readiness and financial literacy program aimed at high school students throughout the city of Birmingham, AL in the Summer 2012. With this program, Financial Entertainment expanded on its library of online casual games to explore the possibilities of gamification, the use of game mechanics and game design to enhance non-game contexts. With the support of Birmingham Mayor William Bell, D2D and partners used badges, points, and prizes to reward students for taking positive steps toward applying for and financing their college education.
