Behind the Magic of Disney Education

Education needs to be relevant and exciting to students. The Disney Youth Education program hosted me at the end of this past summer to experience three of their programs first-hand. In today's podcast, I interview the director of the program Aaron Joyner to talk about the philosophy behind Disney's education magic. I also share some of my first-hand experiences and observations from the trip.

Listen to Aaron Joyner talk about the magic behind Disney Education



I was hosted by Disney at the end of this past summer 2019 where I experienced a unit of physics, science and lighting, and another unit from the drama and music department. It was enjoyable. All opinions are my own and this post was not pre-approved or endorsed by Disney.
