It has been a while since I updated the page, so i'm due. I have spent the past 3 years learning how to fly 3D. I believe that I would become a better pilot by attempting 3D flying, but wasn't sure why. Now I know more and have learned that most 3D flight is done while the plane is in a stall. Thus, one learns how to control planes in a stall and boy does this make you a better pilot. Now when flying my ealrer trainers or scale planes I find that my new skills really show up.
3D flying is a challenge, which I enjoy as I tend to love learning. However, I got back into the regular crashing that I had overcome with trainer and scale planes. All of my repair skills paid off as I am often able to repair after a crash and get back into the air. This is also the reason I have stayed with foam planes as they are much easier to repair. I used the Techone planes to learn 3D, as they are designed for this and perform maneuvers slowly compared to other planes. I also like the Techone stuff because you can get the kits for fairly little money and just reuse the hardware from the crashed beyond re-use plane. I am on my fourth one after three years. I can finally say that I can hover the Techone planes. I guess I really am making progress.
Anyway, I have much more to share from what I have learned. More on this will come. One thing I want to mention now is that I just recently got into the Frsky Taranis transmitter and I love it. I highly recommend spending the money for one of these beauties.
Entrepreneurship is changing the way students learn. Treating students as creators of technology changes roles in the classroom and how technology is used. A number of different models of learning are used in entrepreneurship programs that span academic classes and extracurricular programs.
Your task as a group is to select one of the examples from the list below and answer these questions:
- What is the purpose or objectives of the class or program?
- Who are the learners?
- What is the role of the learners?
- What is the role of the leaders?
- How is this program an example of an ecosystem?
- How does this class or program facilitate entrepreneurship?
- How is learning measured?
