I would love to start playing with drones. But I know it's so interesting it would eat all of my free time. Applying drones to learning - now there's something that's guaranteed to capture the imagination of at least some students (anyone fascinated by flight, at least, as I am). Anyhow, Parrot - which makes drones - is releasing various education-related applications. "The Swift Playgrounds iPad app lets students program and control Parrot drones using Swift code. The Tynker coding program for kids lets students program a Parrot drone from the Tynker iPad and Android apps. The Workbench platform offers a professional community where teachers can share their ideas for classroom activities."
