It is well known that when learning something is fun, people are more likely to remember it. The same goes for how we receive our education: the more fun it is, the more likely we will remember what we learn. As new technology develops, it will be good for schools to adapt it to help students learn useful skills. Now, it looks like a new technology may be able to encourage kids to learn about technology: drones.
Thanks to their availability in the last few years, the public has taken a shine to drones. From recreational use to professional racing, drones are becoming part of everyday life. That makes them a perfect method to get kids into studying technology. Exactly how, though, can they do this?
Drones vs. Video Games
For better or worse, video games are a part of many kids’ lives. They provide entertainment, social interaction (albeit indirect), and can improve hand-eye coordination. Unfortunately, they can also be crazy addictive and inhibit social skills. The only viable solution, then, is to find something even more fun that will get kids back outside.
