"The name stands for Economics Education Web, and the site lives up to the name, with links to a wide variety of resources for economics education at the K-12 and undergraduate levels. EcEdWeb points to every site you're likely to need to study the subject..."
From Boardwatch, May, 1997:
"The electronic curriculum has a K-6 component and a 7-12 component. It begins with scarcity and finishes with a presentation of Profit and Taxes.
The K-6 Component teaches more about economics, I bet, than most American high school seniors know when they graduate. The 7-12 component follows the National Council on Economic Education's curriculum which prepares students for a practical experience after high school and for introductory economics courses at the collegiate level."
From Electronic Learning, March/April, 1997:
"The University of Nebraska at Omaha has pulled together an abundance of information to introduce students to economics. ... In addition to valuable list of links to Web pages dealing with economics, EcEdWeb includes step-by-step lesson ideas and links to Internet-based lesson plans. This is a good place to start to develop a well-rounded economics program for your school or district."
