Current approaches to developing financial decision skills draw heavily on normative-rational models of decision making, undervalue the importance of context, and, importantly, disregard significant advances in expertise research, cognitive neurosciences, and experimental economics and break-through innovations in wearable sensor technologies and serious games. However, recent developments in cognitive neurosciences, wearable sensors, and game research are preparing the ground to more effectively address the problems of learner performance, skill training, and skill transfer in financial decision making.
