Use of Drones in Education?

The insurance company, USAA, was recently given approval by the FAA to use drones to check up on people who have filed insurance claims with USAA. They are testing a program where the drones would fly into major disaster areas and help process insurance claims faster. The drones can safely fly over disaster areas and areas that humans can’t access easily. This is an effort to help victims receive their insurance claim payment quicker so they can start on repairs or relocate depending upon the type of natural disaster that has occurred.

I know a few educators who are using drones in the classroom or are having their students build and fly the drones created in class. This is the future of education. I have doing a great deal of research on makered and makerspaces and am anxious to see how educators will be using drones as part of their makered curriculum. There is huge potential when using drones to discover math and science concepts by creating, making, building, flying and landing the drones from an app on a cell phone or some type of remote device.
