  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.
