Universal Apples To Apples

In today’s My Disney Class Podcast episode, Howie and Ryan compare two of their recent trips. Howie went to Universal Studios in Orlando, yes you heard us right, Howie went to that place that shouldn’t be mentioned! Just kidding, we love Universal too and as you will find out in this episode, Howie is warming up as well. On the other hand, Ryan traveled to Wisconsin to visit two schools that are implementing personalized learning with their middle school students and are doing quite innovative things.  

Howie talks about his recent trip and compares the attractions at Universal and those at World Disney World. He talks about the costs, lines, theming, and much more. Some of you may be surprised at what he reveals that he believes that Universal is doing better than Disney. Ryan then ends this episode by sharing what is in the works at his school in the terms of choices his students will have next year in the different styles of personalized learning they will offer in four distinct academies at his school. To help him gather data and see successful systems already in place in schools utilizing the personalized learning approach, he traveled to two schools in Wisconsin. Both these schools are several years into this personalized learning journey and there are definitely some cool things happening at these schools.
