Co-creational Education: A Project-based Flipped Classroom Workshop Series for Online Education using Drone Building to Teach Engineering Subjects

Arthur Schuchter

Abstract

This pandemic has taught us that online education is more than a geeky addition to the educator’s toolbox; it is an essential part of modern teaching. Online teaching of engineering subjects traditionally uses tools to share screens, compute and calculate mathematical examples. It also enables work on coding projects in teams and lets the students watch interactive physics simulations. However, there is no possibility to collaboratively steer and observe virtual physics experiments online. What is often missed when working on a project online is, really participating in an experiment and changing and adding your own ideas. We need collaborative competence when entering the corporate world, yet education focuses too much on individual learning. In order to make online teaching a more hands-on experience, this paper proposes co-creational shared physics simulations and virtual physics experiments including 2D drone simulations. This includes the concept of gamification because it presents a playful way for students to learn about physical aspects of drones. The approach presented in this paper focuses on teaching coding and engineering subjects co-educationally with the help of drone-building and aiming to create a platform for knowledge transfer.
