'What's the Plan Stan?' is a very interesting resource. It would be good to know how it was disseminated among the educational community. So for instance how were teachers using the resource? Were they trained in any way or directed to the resource by a formal curriculum? I would also be interested to what your team thinks of the resources that I put together (click on the curriculum sub-menu on the resources tab above) to support teaching and learning of hazards and preparedness in the UK, where overall perception is less, due to the infrequency of such events as the flooding in 2007.

Instruction booklet on reducing the risks of earthquakes

This booklet, written in both Arabic and English, guides children on how to protect themselves in different earthquake scenarios, such as if they are in a vehicle or classroom. The booklet also provides information on facilitating a safe exit and reducing risks prior to earthquakes.

Imprex game

This game is about the use of forecasts to prevent flooding. Players work as commanders in a hydrological forecasting office, where they interact with colleagues to learn valuable risk information and gain insight into flood projections. Players must subsequently make risk management decisions, such as sending early warnings or issuing flood watches.
