  Title Safety villages: A computer game for raising children's awareness of risks Type Conference Article
  Year 2012 Publication ISCRAM 2012 Conference Proceedings – 9th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2012

  Abstract Computer games have proved to be a valuable educational resource in many different areas from medicine to military training as well as specific training in emergency responses. Their motivational benefits also make them particularly suitable for training children. However, in order to enjoy the benefits that the use of computer games may report, it is necessary that the games resemble those which children play for fun, and that it offers an appropriate balance between its educational and entertainment purposes. In this paper we present an educational game called “Safety Villages” of the mini-game genre which aims to help raise children's awareness of emergencies and domestic risks. The design and implementation of the game has been carried out following strategies and integrating components usually present in games for entertainment. A preliminary evaluation of the game has shown a positive response in children, indicating that they can both learn and enjoy themselves while playing the game. © 2012 ISCRAM.

  Title A game model for supporting children learning about emergency situations Type Conference Article
  Year 2010 Publication ISCRAM 2010 – 7th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management: Defining Crisis Management 3.0, Proceedings Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2010

  Abstract Despite the undeniable value of computer games as educational resources for teaching children, its actual application in educational processes is hampered due the complexity of their design and the high cost of developing them. In order to foster their adoption for emergency training, we propose a model for describing the different elements of an educational game for this domain. The model might serve to support the game designing process as well as a communication tool between educators and game designers. This way, the educator can specify the requirements of the educational experience he aims to construct, and based on that information the game designer can propose a set of possible configurations of the game elements that can help to attain the specified objectives.

  Title A scenario-based virtual environment for supporting emergency training Type Conference Article
  Year 2014 Publication ISCRAM 2014 Conference Proceedings – 11th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2014  
  Volume Issue Pages 597-601  
  Keywords Information systems; Learning systems; 3-D virtual environment; Cross-impact analysis; Design and implementations; Emergency situation; Emergency training; Scenarios; Serious games; Simulation exercise; Virtual reality  
  Abstract Simulation exercises are particularly popular for training in emergency situations. Exercises can vary in their degree of realism, complexity and level of stress, but they all try to reproduce a scenario of a real emergency so that each participant simulates the actions carried out for the role they should play. They not only support effective and situated learning, but they can also serve to improve the plan by allowing the identification of weak points and potential drawbacks in it. To facilitate the design and implementation of 3D virtual environments in which training exercises can be conducted, in this paper we propose to use the Cross-Impact Analysis technique in combination with an educational game platform called GRE. We also present a Simulation Authoring Tool that allows the designer to carry out the integration of the knowledge captured by means of Cross-Impact into the game designs that GRE can interpret.
