Discussion about the new Disney Star Wars hotel coming to Walt Disney World that would be a resort that would be designed to look like you’re staying on a starship
We dream big with our “Blue Sky” discussion about a Star Wars’ universe with personal interactions with Star Wars’ characters, live performers throughout the starship. With even more immersive activities like flight training, ship exploration, lightsaber training, and personalized, secret missions both on the starship and throughout Star Wars Land.
We have discovered patents that Disney has filed on possible room design, electronic enhancements and interactive elements that could be used in the resort and in the rooms. Come along as we speculate on how to solve the design problems for the new resort.
We discuss the Imagineering process and how you can teach your students to address projects in your own class in a very similar way. We will also take a deeper dive into how patents work and how you can use them in your lessons to enhance the real world value of the content that you are teaching. To round this episode out, we will also address how to use search engines to efficiently and effectively. You will also find value in this beyond your own searching, as I know students can often need direction in their own research searching as well.

We are not joking with this April 1st episode! On today’s show, Howie and Ryan are feeling hungry, hungry for learning with Disney details. Episode 17 is all about the places you can grab a bite to eat, but also learn something as well. Ryan and Howie share some of their favorite places to eat on property but not necessarily because of the food, though we promise the food is pretty good too.
