4 Steps to Create an Effective K–12 Drone Curriculum
Article by by Wylie Wong | EdTech
Before investing in the hardware, K–12 schools should take some basic steps to ensure their drone programs will get off the ground.
An increasing number of K–12 schools are bringing drones into the classroom as new use cases show how useful unmanned vehicles can be to teach science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics skills.
While students are excited at the idea of flying robots in class, teachers will need support systems to learn how to incorporate the new technology into their lesson plans.
“It’s easy to attract students and hook them with the coolness of flying drones. The burden is on us to show them the career connection — that a drone is a tool and that many industries use it,” Duane Roberson, Colorado Springs School District 11‘s director of career and technical education and concurrent enrollment, told EdTech.
Kellogg reminds his students that they are at the forefront of cutting-edge technology, and that the technology offers a good career opportunity: “They understand that they have an opportunity to not only earn credit to graduate, but also to learn a career skill that comes with an industry-recognized certification. That looks great on a resume and makes them hirable.”
