NGPF's Best of 2021: Product Releases and Updates

Our best ideas come from you and the top 10 list below shows how we maintained our focus in 2021 to build products and services that you need. Several themes emerge from the list: 

  • You like our commitment to continually update our resources as the Career and Taxes updates scoring high on the list.
  • You challenged us to think of ways to incorporate personal finance across the curriculum so we built a new Financial Algebra course and added to our Economics resources. Thanks to your efforts (you are our #1 source for new teachers), more than 3,000 new math teachers have signed up for accounts. 
  • You (and your students) always want more NGPF Arcade Games. We added Influenc'd this year which is off to a great start 140,000+ plays since launch in mid-October. Thank you to our game developer, McKinney! 
  • You asked for more psychology and behavioral economics, so we built a new Behavioral Economics unit focused on our cognitive biases that get in the way of our financial decisions. 

So, here's the top 10 list:

  1. NEW! Career Unit
  2. Updated Career Resources
  3. Influenc'd, a new NGPF Arcade Game
  4. NGPF Updated Taxes Curriculum 2021(learn more about our update plans for 2022)
  5. Important Updates: Mini-Unit Activities
  6. NEW! Financial Algebra Course (3 units released, more added throughout the school year)
  7. NEW! Activity Collection for ECON
  8. NEW! Behavioral Economics Unit
  9. NEW! ECON Data Crunches
  10. Introducing NGPF On-Demand Modules

About the Author

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.
