Mc Alekson Marvida | Celia A Tibayan

 

Abstract:

With the occurrence of natural disasters in the country, particularly typhoons, floods and earthquakes, it is vital that the masses are aware on what to do before, during and after those events. With this, the researcher came up with the multimedia materials that will help promote awareness on disaster preparedness particularly for Grades 4 to 6 students. The multimedia materials produced are animated videos and web comics. Facebook page was created as a marketing material to promote the materials. Overall assessment of the animated videos, web comics and Facebook page were all rated outstanding by targeted audience. The said materials can be effective tools in promoting awareness on disaster preparedness and can be useful to elementary schools and future researchers.
