Typically, illustration tools are used in the classroom, but Youngberg (2019) suggests, some illustration tools can also be used outside the classroom. Video games can economic concepts and create discussions in class (Ferrarini, 2012).
Ferrarini (2012), Ng (2019), and Youngberg (2019) describe the use of and discussions about video games to teach economics and financial literacy. Mateer and O’Roark (2020) provide 10 different lesson plans based on the video game: Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Vidal (2020) explains how the video game Civilization VI can be used to illustrate many economic concepts, such as human and physical capital, trade, and property rights.
