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.
The purpose of this consultancy is to identify strategies on how to integrate the First Aid app into blended learning approaches to better support First Aid training.
Scope of work
The objective of the consultancy is to better inform the GDPC on strategic engagement opportunities with National Societies on the First Aid app. The work will contribute to the broader discussion on how technology focused tools can be integrated into a holistic engagement strategy to bette support people’s ability to prepare for and respond to First Aid emergencies.
