In today’s episode of My Disney Class Podcast, Ryan and Howie welcome to the show an incredible 4th-grade teacher in the Hernando School district, Brooksville FL. Howie and Ryan were lucky enough to meet Nadia as she attended the first cohort to go through the P.D. Magic experiential trip to Walt Disney World. Nadia, as well as everyone in that group, thoroughly impressed Howie, Brian, and Ryan as they all were willing to put themselves out there, have fun, and share with each other. This made the first P.D. Magic trip a huge success and one that changed each of us for the better!

Nadia talks about her last year and a half and how she has been implementing Disney with her elementary school students. You will love hearing about how she has implemented global perspectives and engaging Disney motivations with her school’s new Cambridge program. She also discusses some of the challenges of teaching in a COVID hybrid world and how she feels that these challenges are helping her students turn into the next digital creative generation. 

We hope you enjoy today’s show and our discussion with the wonderful Nadia King! Please keep the conversation going over on Educator’s Who Love Disney Facebook group and like always we would love any feedback you have. Please like and share our podcast on Apple Music and any other media platform you use.

EPCOT FUTURE WORLD OF EDUCATION

In today’s episode of My Disney Class Podcast, Ryan and Howie are discussing how they might approach creating lessons out of EPCOT attractions.  In the show today we get a peek inside the workings of both Howie’s and Ryan’s mind and boy can that be scary! It all starts with a nightmare that Howie had that an upcoming book on EPCOT was due to the publisher and no ideas were coming to mind on how to create lessons for one of our favorite parks, EPCOT.  This leads Ryan and Howie to the content of today’s show which is how we approach each attraction from the start. What’s the first impression of an attraction? What educational inspiration does this attraction give us? What’s the story? How can we take that story and use it to our advantage to create an engaging and inspiring lesson for our students? We will take a look at these questions and more as we walk around EPCOT in today’s discussion.

So as we walk and explore EPCOT for educational gold, which we found a ton, our inspiration took us to many places from the Sciences to History and even poetry.  Howie and Ryan even got so carried away that they only made it through Future World. Look for a future episode where they continue their walk around EPCOT gaining educational inspiration around every corner and churro!
