Chris Snider of Drake University on why they bought a drone for the J-School

“It’s my goal to be bringing in new technology to make sure that students are aware that, you know, digital tools are disrupting all of our jobs and we need to learn about them and we need to discuss them.

I completely agree. Teaching the skill of lifelong learning and instilling a passion for what’s next is the best way to arm communications students — who otherwise will be learning tactical skills that may be outdated by their second job out of school — for success. Kudos DU.
