MADISON, Wis. (4/16/08)--New interactive features were recently added to the middle-school level of CUNA’s three-in-one online youth magazine, Googolplex. “AJ’s” allows middle-school readers to:
* Log in with their own screen name and save favorite content; * Post notes to other users (this feature is moderated); * Create a hero icon and invite their friends to join their league of heroes; * Submit questions for possible use in an upcoming reader poll; * Request notification of new content on specific topics; and * Read the Kid Kred comic strip online and vote to determine the direction of future episodes.
AJ’s also has new, challenging games and brainteasers that keep the site interesting and relevant to the age group. Middle schoolers can still learn how to earn and manage their money through stories. 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 Googolplex’s three 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, such as cars, college, getting rich, and shopping for high school students.
