Abstract

The purpose of this project was to help Year 8 students at Emerald Secondary College develop knowledge and awareness about bushfire safety to improve local disaster resilience. To accomplish our goal, we developed online lesson plans that combined interactive technology, project-based learning, and community involvement to educate students on how to reduce risk and manage emergencies in their local area. We collected and analyzed student feedback to improve the lessons and provide a strong foundation for future disaster resilience education.
