School Safety Programme: Towards a culture of prevention
During the COVID-19 pandemic, it became necessary to explore new approaches for effective education on disaster safety. In particular, children in special schools for the disabled and schools in the remote island areas often have limited opportunities. They are among the most vulnerable and are often left behind from traditional disaster safety education. Online disaster education and digital-based methods such as online games, quizzes or spaces such as metaverse are effective. Offline, adapting materials to learners’ special needs are also critical.
This presentation shares the experience the Korean School Safety Programme becoming more inclusive. Join this interactive session to learn through play and practice. It features an online quiz, a demonstration of adapted games, and the potential use of the metaverse experience.
