Teaching is just like a side of fries - it goes with just about everything and anything you can think of. When it comes to teaching, anything can be added to the process to make it easier and more fun. In fact, you could think of a thousand abstract things and realise that teachers have already incorporated those things in the classroom. Learning games? Teachers already started using these in the classroom even before the Titanic sank. Paintings? Been there, done that.

However, one method that hasn’t fully been employed by many teachers is the use of drones.

Surprised, aren’t you? We get it. This sounds just as strange as putting pineapple on pizza. What on earth would a drone be doing in a classroom? Well, you’d find out soon enough.

Homeschooling is an innovative movement that has become popular all over the world. Many parents prefer to educate their children at home.

This form of education started gaining ground during the 1970s. At that time, writers and researchers like Dorothy, Raymond Moore, and John Holt propagated their educational reform ideas. National Home Education Research Institute has stated that more than two million children in the United States are homeschooled at present.

The advancement in technology in recent years has had a significant impact on our lives, led to sectors expanding, and has contributed immensely to how we now do things in different parts of the world and have impacted the educational sector.

Schools now have a big responsibility to teach the students about past events or current affairs and prepare them for their future. The good thing is that the educational system moves in the right direction and already takes some necessary steps to ensure this. Everything that we know and see in robotics has its roots deep in research, following an academic model with scientists, policymakers, and governments all on board. As we continue to develop this, it is also becoming increasingly important that we include robotics as a significant part of educational curriculums.
