Best Practice & Innovation – Drones in forest operators education (Norway)

ROSEWOO4.0 presents in this video the forest-based teaching approach of Solør Videregående Skole in Norway, a national leader in training for forestry operations. 

Established 75 years ago, Solør Videregående Skole teaching lessons takes place both indoors and outdoors and allows pupils a practical approach to forestry. The curriculum follows the yearly season with planning, forest culture and logging. Drones are used as a supplement to teaching, where they film objects and stock as a basis for work in teaching.

When training operation of forestry machines, drones allow students and teachers to see the work from a birds-eye perspective. Used correctly, this may lead to increased learning both for those who observe, but especially for those who are observed and who get to see themselves at work.
