The Consumer Federation of America hosts The NeighborMood’s Official Launch
Our personal finance game, The NeighborMood, was officially launched on 24 February 2021 in an online event hosted by the Consumer Federation of America, and in partnership with the FoolProof Foundation. Special guest speakers include Jean Rogers, Director of the Children’s Screen Time Action Network, and Nina Hersher, Director of the Digital Wellness Collective.
The NeighborMood is Dot Dot Fire’s answer to the growing need for accessible and effective personal financial education. It is a real-world simulation game that teaches kids consumer life skills and healthy skepticism through simulated scenarios and realistic consequences.
Watch the launch:
'The NeighborMood is constantly illustrating the importance of caution when making decisions,' says Jack Gillis, Executive Director of the Consumer Federation of America.
'This is real world information that consumers and children are rarely taught,' says Nina Hersher, Director of the Digital Wellness Collective, 'This is a game that harnesses technology to teach children real financial literacy and other critical 21st century skills.'
'This game is a true digital wellness game,” concludes Jean Rogers, Director of the Children’s Screen Time Action Network. The Network has never endorsed a game before The NeighborMood.
