AGTA Awards Review: The ForestLearning and She Maps 'Drones in Forestry' units dynamically engage with emerging technology for a contemporary learning experience for all students. The significant support and resourcing attached to the unit empowers teachers to implement contemporary geographic tools in their curriculum, underpinned by strong vocational links
Dr Susan Caldis
Chairperson of AGTA Board
DRONES are excellent for taking high-quality aerial photographs and videos when you go on trips, but have you seen how drones are being used every day in forestry? Drones and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are already a part of sustainable forestry management. They inform real-time decision making and planning and also ensure the safety of forestry employees.
ForestLearning and She Maps have been creating a series of case studies, StoryMaps and teaching resources that will allow students to explore and understand: ✅ How drones and GIS are supporting the forestry industry ✅ Which careers are involved in this technology
