Consultancy: Blended Learning approaches for First Aid using mobile technology
With the Universal App Program, the Global Disaster Preparedness Center (GDPC) has created a platform to facilitate the adaptation and localization of mobile applications (apps) with first aid and hazard information to be used in countries across the globe, putting preparedness information directly into people's hands. The First Aid App enables users to learn about the first aid emergencies, test their knowledge through engaging quizzes and to quickly access guidance on the most relevant actions to take in different emergencies. Purpose
"Doing No Harm" in the Digital Age
New technologies continue to present great risks and opportunities for humanitarian action. To ensure that their use does not result in any harm, humanitarian organisations must develop and implement appropriate data protection standards, including robust risk assessments. However, this requires a good understanding of what these technologies are, what risks are associated with their use, and how we can try to avoid or mitigate them.
