Disaster Resilience Education at #SLAVConf

In a presentation at the SLAV Conference on 16 August 2013 I talked about Disaster Resilience Education and a project I am working on with Red Cross called Educating the Educators. This Storify has been created to support that presentation by providing access to resources shown.

  4. Resource Mapping

  5. Australian Disaster Resilience Education Resources have been mapped to the Australian Curriculum.
    A report will be available through the AEMI Schools website and Knowledge Hub
