By now, you may have heard about The Walking Classroom app, introduced last spring in an effort to keep students walking, listening, and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. But did you know you can subscribe in different ways, depending on whether you are an individual user or an educator using the program with a group of students?
Homeschoolers or Individual Users
Homeschoolers or parents looking for enrichment for their kids will opt for The Walking Classroom mobile app. Available for both iOS and Android, it requires Wi-Fi or cellular data. Loaded with 191 fun, custom-written educational podcasts, it brings our award-winning program to mobile devices. Kids can walk, listen, and learn at home — or anywhere! As an added bonus, The Walking Classroom mobile app is 100% ad-free.
And, if you want to give The Walking Classroom mobile app a try before you buy, you can! It includes 26 free podcasts for you to sample!
Educators implementing the program with groups of students in schools and in out-of-school time settings will prefer The Walking Classroom web-based mobile app. This browser-based version acts like a traditional mobile app, but it runs in your web browser. Because it is web-based, it can be used on any device or platform with a browser. Students can log in at school using school devices or at home on personal devices.
And, with the web-based version, educators will find user management easy! Simply provide The Walking Classroom with a list of student log-ins and passwords, and we’ll have you and your students on your way to Happy Trails in no time!
No matter how you access the program — be it via the mobile or web-based mobile app — you get the same 191 standards-based podcasts. Covering topics in language arts, social studies, and science, they are appropriate for students in grades three through eight. Each includes a synopsis, discussion questions, health message, and character value, all on the same screens where you access the podcasts.
To support you even further, an electronic Mobile App Teacher’s Guide is available for purchase in our online store. Complete with lesson plans and quizzes for every podcast, it also includes implementation schedules and guidelines. And, for a limited time, all paid subscribers to the app can get a free copy of the electronic Mobile App Teacher’s Guide!
