Complete Description:The development and use of technology-based tools for financial literacy education has grown rapidly in recent years, often based on the presumption that digital media will enhance past practice. However, little attention has been given to understanding why such technologies may be expected to enhance outcomes for either general or vulnerable populations. This literature review fills this gap by examining behavioral and educational theories that provide insight into how digital pedagogies may support personal-finance-related teaching and learning. The authors present an ecological model for technology-based financial literacy education intervention and propose an action agenda for practice and further research.
