COLUMBIA, Mo. – University of Missouri will offer a two-day, in-person class on teaching digital technology June 22-23. The class is targeted to high school agriculture and science teachers.
“Digital Agriculture in Today’s Classroom” offers a mix of lecture and hands-on activities that highlight digital tools for agriculture and how they can save time, money and labor, says Kent Shannon, assistant teaching professor at MU.
Shannon says the class offers teachers an opportunity to teach the next generation of farmers how to use technology in decision-making processes on the farm.
MU faculty in agricultural systems technology, agronomy and economics as well as farmers and representatives from USDA and the agriculture industry will share their knowledge during the two-day event.
Topics include using drones for targeted spraying of chemicals and seeding of cover crops. Two speakers from Germany will offer Zoom presentations on technology being used there.
The class will be at the Agricultural Engineering Building on the MU campus. Shannon says one hour of graduate credit is offered through MU.
