Inside the Haiti Earthquake - a Story-based Simulation

The Canadian firm PTV productions and flash animator Michael Gibson of ZapDramatic games have teamed up to create an immersive learning module exploring crisis response choices and journalistic ethics using sometimes graphic footage from the Haiti earthquake. Inside the Haiti Earthquake invites you to experience the days following the earthquake from the point of view of a survivor, a journalist and an aid worker. In all situations you are faced with tough decisions that influence how the rest of the story unfolds. It is best experienced full-screen with your sound turned on.

The dramatic footage used in the simulation is from a documentary directed by Nadine Pequeneza entitled Inside Disaster that followed the Red Cross for two weeks as they responded to the Haiti crisis.
