DisasterMapper wins the Knowledge Innovation Award (2012)


DisasterMapper, an interactive resource for schools, has received the Australasian Fire and Emergency Services Authorities Council (AFAC)/Motorola Knowledge Innovation Award for 2012.

DisasterMapper, which forms part of an extensive range of disaster resilience school education resources developed by distriqt for the Australian Emergency Management Institute (AEMI), is an interactive map of Australia that challenges students to explore statistics, images, video and information about more than 50 major Australian disasters that have occurred since the 1900s. It has been designed to engage students in years 5-9 and is supported by an extensive teaching guide linked to the Australian Curriculum, containing a series of lesson plans and activities for teachers.

distriqt was selected to design and develop this product for AEMI in 2010 and we're proud to see it's being received so well.
