Goals, Gifts, Gadgets and Goofy

Happy New Year!  In today’s episode Howie and Ryan celebrate the new year by looking at setting goals, gifts they received or wished they had received, gadgets teachers may need, and the Goofy things we did in 2015.  Ryan starts out by talking about S.M.A.R.T goal setting and the how and why you may want to consider using this technique when having your students set goals.  Then both Ryan and Howie share their personal goals for the new year:

 

Ryan’s goals for the new year.

  1. Bring more STEM / real life into my classroom

After discussing goals, Howie shares some of the awesome gifts he’s received including Sphero and Little Bits. Ryan shares what gets him excited when it comes to receiving gifts and no surprize it revolves around retro Disney! We then round out the present talk with some gadgets that we could all use to make our life easier. To end the show Howie and Ryan share some of the Goofy things they’ve done in 2015.  The one thing we know that wasn’t Goofy in 2015 was starting this adventure of My Disney Class and with that we wanted to share our thanks for all the support we have received from our guests and wonderful listeners.  We look forward to continuing this incredible journey with you in 2016 and can’t wait to meet more of the Magical educators from all over the world.
