Make engaging updates to your program with these tips!
Whether you’re a teacher, law enforcement professional, or community educator, when it comes to drunk driving education, one thing is for certain: even the best prevention program needs some updating now and then.
After all, a program that may have worked great 10 or 15 years ago can eventually stop resonating with today’s students. For that reason, it’s important to regularly incorporate new drunk driving prevention ideas into your curriculum to keep students engaged and interested.
If you’re looking to add new drunk driving prevention ideas to your education program, here are a few tips from the team at Fatal Vision to get you started:
- Research which activities/products will be the best fit for your needs
- Get training on how to best use your new products
- Request participant feedback

Research which activities/products will be the best fit for your needs
When it comes to increasing student engagement with your lessons, adding in hands-on activities and products is a great option. But not all activities will be a great fit for every program!
Consider the space where you hold your program, the age and interest of your students, and the time you’ll have for participants to engage with the activity or product. For example, if you’re hosting a booth at a community event, a quick, hands-on activity like the Turn ‘N Learn Classroom Challenge would be a great fit for your needs. If your program takes place in a classroom setting and you have more time with your participants, more in-depth programs like intoxiclock® Pro may be a better fit.
Get training on how to best use your new products
If the new prevention ideas you’ve added to your program include hands-on products like our Fatal Vision® Alcohol Impairment Goggles or the SIDNE driving simulator, it’s a good idea to get some training on the most effective way to use them in your curriculum. Our SIDNE packages always include on-site training from the Innocorp team; with other products, you can purchase training sessions for an extra cost.
Our on-site product training sessions cover how to engage your audience with safe demonstration techniques, how to integrate the products into your existing program, how to improve instructors’ program delivery, and more.
Request participant feedback
One of the most effective ideas to incorporate into your education program is to weave in participant feedback whenever possible. If a certain lesson or activity isn’t resonating with your students, it’s important for you to know so you can adjust your curriculum going forward. After all, if a lesson isn’t engaging, it isn’t likely that students will retain the information you teach after your program ends.
