My class does The Walking Classroom on Mondays, and I personally am always looking forward to it. I enjoy getting out of the classroom and walking and learning with my students!
Listening to a podcast while walking is different than any other method I use in my teaching. With The Walking Classroom, it’s really interesting to watch my students focus on the podcast as they walk.
Listening is an important skill for students to practice. The students really need to focus as they walk, so that they are not distracted, and they can absorb the material being taught. And they do! Our discussions have been very rich after listening to the podcasts.
