The Red Cross has a mandate to teach young people about the rules of war. Based on input from the Red Cross, we have developed a brand-new teaching aid using mixed media such as augmented reality and gamification combined with analog tools. This teaching aid can be used free of charge in schools and colleges across Norway from the autumn of 2020.
“When the War Rages” is an educational resource on human rights and international humanitarian law, which will be distributed free of charge to schools across Norway. In partnership with the Red Cross, we have developed and designed the teaching resources with the engaging use of various media such as augmented reality, online materials, board games, quizzes, and ethical dilemmas. Much of the material is based on war and conflict. There’s also a focus on the role of the media and the involvement of young people. You will find a total of 26 modules in 5 chapters:
- Human dignity
- Rules of war
- The consequences of the war
- The story of the war
- Children. War. Me?
- Red Cross
- Educational game about human rights in war
