CUNA redesigns elementary level online youth magazine
MADISON, Wis. (2/5/09)--New interactive features were recently added to the elementary school level of the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA) online youth magazine, Googolplex. 5-Spot now allows elementary school readers to earn pretend clubhouse dollars by answering quiz questions, taking an instant poll, playing games and reading stories. Readers also will become more familiar with saving, spending and sharing when they use their clubhouse cash to decorate their clubhouse and give to charity. There also are new flash calculators and weekly “Natalie” comic strips. A new instant poll features questions for kids to answer, or they can also submit their own questions for consideration. Googolplex offers credit union-specific consumer stories and games designed to make youth of all ages feel welcome on credit union websites. New content is added weekly throughout its three separate reading and interest levels:
* 5-Spot--addresses basic money concepts such as saving and spending for elementary students; * AJ’s--helps middle schoolers tackle popular topics such as making friends, getting rich, and shopping; and * C-Note--contains financial and personal advice on common interests for high school students such as cars, college, shopping and preparing to become independent.
