Drone-based learning

Drones are small devices that can be controlled remotely and made to carry out various tasks, either while in the air or once they have landed. Typically, they are used to take photographs or make videos. Learners can use them to look inside inaccessible places or to see a landscape from different angles. Using drones, students can collect data in places that would otherwise be difficult or dangerous to access. The use of drones helps learners to develop new skills, including planning routes and interpreting visual clues in the landscape. This enriches exploration of many physical spaces. Drone-based learning also stimulates valuable discussion around how emerging technologies can be used responsibly in learning spaces beyond the classroom.
