Interesting question to ask your students to get a sense how many might be using of the financial apps below.  These are five apps the WSJ highlighted in a recent blog post which would seem to be more relevant for college students but might be interesting to see if you have any early adopters:

  • Venmo
  • Splitwise
  • Tilt
  • LevelUp
  • You Need a Budget

You could also ask your student to add to this list through a WebQuest and explain what the use cases are for each app that they find.

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
