Drones in exams

A school in Belgium is apparently using military-style drones to stop pupils cheating during exams.

Drones in examsAccording to the Mirror, the flying robots – used by the US army to spy behind enemy lines – are being used by Thomas More school in Mechelen, Belgium.

The miniature DJI Phantom aircraft, equipped with a GoPro video camera, requires one invigilator to control it while another checks the video monitor for any devious activity by students.

The school has posted a tongue-in-cheek YouTube video showing how it can sneakily peek over students' shoulders as they do their exams. As if they aren't under enough stress!
