A drone, in technological terms, is an unmanned aircraft. Essentially, a drone is a flying robot that can be remotely controlled or fly autonomously through software-controlled flight plans in their embedded systems, working in conjunction with onboard sensors and GPS.
As technology rapidly progresses, it is important that our educational methods evolve to stay in sync with these changes. A modern and dynamic educational model will allow students to grasp concepts with greater ease.
Let’s face it. Drones are cool. Having a drone in the classroom will certainly pique the curiosity levels of students. Firstly, young kids can better their hand eye coordination by mastering stick movement with a training drone.
Kids in higher grades can learn about Maths, Physics and Science with the aid of drones. How so? Let’s start with Maths. Many kids particularly grapple with Maths because of its abstract nature. Using drones, kids can learn about distance and time. They can learn graph creation and trigonometry by observing the flight path of the drone.
