The virtual learning space “Safety Signage” aims to learn the function and message of safety signs practically and playfully in the virtual space.
In the safety signage exercise, the player is given the task of correctly placing selected safety signs such as escape route signs and traffic and mandatory signs in the room like a puzzle game. The signs have to be placed in the right place so that everyone can see them.
The exercise is followed by a small fire-fighting exercise in which the knowledge learned about fire-fighting has to be applied correctly. For example, the correct fire extinguisher must be selected and the correct safety distance from the fire must be maintained.
The prototype was developed and tested by digital.DTHG staff member Vincent Kaufmann in the summer of 2020 during the research phase for the “Virtual Teaching and Learning Spaces” sub-project.
