TEACHERS & CAREGIVERS

Hello, and thank you for assisting us educate children how to cope in an emergency, and the appropriate use of Triple Zero (000), Australia’s emergency call service.

This game is designed for children of kindergarten and primary school age and consists of fifteen safety scenarios. The estimated game-play time is one hour, but can be played in shorter intervals.

The game relies on narrative and on voice-prompts. As such, competing noise in a computer classroom can detract from the experience. If available, the use of earphones for each computer will assist. In the event that earphones are not available, using a projector and a central game-play with one computer, using the closed captions option in the game or greater separation of players are all viable alternatives.
