A Concept for Creating Mobile Games for Enhanced Disaster Preparedness in Cooperation with Local Communities

This paper shows how educational games for enhanced disaster preparedness can be created in cooperation / collaboration with local communities. The specific case presented discusses how students from the local university (here: La Plata National University in La Plata, Argentina) created such games as part of a university programming course. The games were subsequently used as part of an exhibition on local disasters.
