Hi Cindy and welcome.

10:24 - Peggy George
that would be such a valuable experience for kids to learn the "real" costs of a trip to Disneyland!!!

10:36 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Hate when that happens.

10:44 - Peggy George
me too Paula!!!

11:39 - @plnaugle (Paula)
That's a new one to me.

11:39 - Patti Ruffing
Mo Willems is a very popular author

11:46 - Susie @shighley
Mo Willems has so many great books.

11:55 - Eileen
My 4th grade students plan a trip across the USA each year and include costs for various things and visit interesting landmarks

11:59 - Peggy George
I hadn't read it but that video was so much fun!!!

12:08 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Will be adding it to my wish list on Amazon.

Hi Greg. We are glad you are joining us.

This movie is definitely one for older kids, too.

13:18 - Peggy George
great question!

very interesting!!! I had not heard that they had made it easier to use Disney in your creations. Always be careful though!

15:25 - Susie @shighley
Kind of like The Super Bowl or the Indianapolis 500 still are; very picky about using their name

15:27 - Peggy George
that is a terrific method!!!

15:39 - Patti Ruffing
curious about the copyright issue on the crafting website, e.g. Chip and Dale and Donald Duck nephews on crafts. Wouldn't that be copyright infringement?

15:44 - Peggy George (Strategies of Genius Volume One: Robert Dilts)

16:47 - Peggy George
might be called a "lurker" :-)

17:23 - Peggy George
I read that article that said Walt Disney didn't actually say that :-)

17:49 - Susie @shighley
I just asked Alexa, and she didn't know the answer

18:14 - @bcdtech Maureen #3
" Tom Fitzgerald "

19:00 - Mary Carter
This is a great idea. It is adaptable for high school students. I am a dreamer.

19:04 - Gwen S
Nice team-building activity, too. I'm a Dreamer for sure.

22:06 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Magic Mountain?

22:16 - Cristina Serafim
Great question!!

22:21 - Patti Ruffing
Susie got it

22:29 - Peggy George (Links for Disney Patents)

22:35 - Peggy George
good job Susie!!

22:54 - Peggy George
This is scary!! (A patent, dubbed "gaze tracking”nd recognition with image location," seeks to create a computer program that can determine where guests are looking in theme parks.)

23:00 - Susie @shighley
Definitely an E ticket!

23:14 - Peggy George
be careful what you look at :-) haha

23:26 - Gwen S
Sorry - kinda creepy.

23:51 - Peggy George
can you imagine what retail stores would do with an app like that???

24:39 - Peggy George
Wouldn't you love to be an imagineer for a day??? :-) Fun!

24:57 - Mary Carter
great cross-curricular activity

25:02 - Peggy George (Tinkercad)

25:27 - Gwen S
Great steps of Production Process - important for kids to learn.

25:28 - Dave
I think I'll have more fun than the s😀

25:37 - Peggy George
I agree Dave!!!! :-)

25:42 - Cristina Serafim
I'm having a wow moment now!

26:06 - Peggy George
so great to see administrators participating in learning about this!!!

26:33 - Peggy George

27:34 - Peggy George
what a great process!!!!

27:52 - Dave
I love the real life application!

28:22 - Peggy George
wow! those are great drawings!

29:15 - Peggy George
fascinating to learn about these patents!

29:19 - Gwen S
That's cool!

29:30 - Peggy George

interesting to connect Disney characters to literature. Yesterday students connected "Thanatopsis" to The Lion King's Circle of Life.

34:00 - @bcdtech Maureen #3
These soound like BreakoutEdu starters

34:16 - Peggy George
love that idea Maureen!

34:37 - Peggy George
That's terrific Mary!! I'll bet the students loved that!

34:47 - Peggy George (Download our Lesson Plan from the Think|Make|Learn workshop and feel free to adopt it to your class!)

34:52 - @bcdtech Maureen #3
(have never been to Disney- nor watch the movies since the 60s)...

34:54 - @plnaugle (Paula)
Yes, Maureen. That would be great to work these challenges into a BreakoutEDU game.

34:57 - Peggy George (Project Based Learning Using Disney Movies)

35:53 - @bcdtech Maureen #3
@pnaugle- I'll work the challenges- you give me the Disney stuff- never go to movies... last one was Forest Gump

36:14 - Peggy George
I really like that project! That kind of thinking will serve them well with close reading on tests!

36:30 - Peggy George
that is really deep thinking!!

37:10 - Dave
Thanks Howie for the great resources, have a great weekend all!

This is a terrific idea...and not only for fairy Pocahontas. Love this openness toward a commercial product. An analysis of editorial choices would be a great addition for older awareness.

I loved Classroom Connect! Went to their conference in Baltimore

48:30 - Peggy George
I remember when some of the daycare facilities in our area had Disney characters on their signs and they had to remove them

48:43 - @plnaugle (Paula)
We had Disney characters painted on a wall at school, that we had to remove.

48:53 - Patti Ruffing
yes, Peggy, I always caution teachers not to use Disney characters on their sites

49:15 - Cristina Serafim
Thank you so much, Dr. Howie! I'm amazed at all these possibilities! :)

49:33 - Peggy George
What's the best online site for kids (Elem, MS, HS) to go to if they want to do some Disney projects independently?

49:36 - Mary Carter
great ideas for the language arts classroom.

49:59 - Peggy George
I know!!! There are so many!!! :-)

50:06 - Mary Carter
Thanks Classroom Connect!
