Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:40 am


The lawn outside the University of Georgia’s journalism school recently was filled with buzzing as students tried their hand at flying drones for the first time. The students are now in the third week of “Drones, Drones, Drones” a new course this semester dedicated to analyzing the airborne technology. The course is being offered through the New Media Institute, a certificate program at UGA that teaches students about emerging technologies and prepares them to use new media in their careers. According to the syllabus, the class aims to “explore the appropriate and effective use of drones, chart the regulation and proposed legislation of drones, and learn how to operate drones.” Students are also responsible for collaborating on a paper detailing both the benefits and the challenges of drone use.
