Road safety education in the hands of regional kids
Regional and remote students now have easy access to road safety education through the Constable Care Child Safety Foundation (CCCSF) and the Road Trauma Trust Account (RTTA).
A $100,000 grant from the RTTA has enabled Constable Care to develop the Arility app, an augmented reality environment to teach young children the risks around using the roads.
Students aged four to seven will be able to interact with augmented characters in six road safety situations as pedestrians, as bike riders and while using public transport.
The children will be required to make choices that will keep them safe on the roads, essentially decisions that will translate to real-life situations.
The Artility app is available from the Apple App Store and can be used on Apple iPads, with support for teachers and parents from the Arility webiste.
