Learn about The Walking Classroom mobile app!
Loaded with almost 200 fun, educational podcasts, The Walking Classroom mobile app brings our award-winning (100% ad-free) program to your own mobile device. Now kids (and families) can walk at home—or anywhere—while listening to these fun, custom-written, educational podcasts. (Learn more about WHY you should walk while listening, here.)
Best of all, it’s completely free to use until July 31, 2020!
Almost 200 podcasts are included in the app!
The app includes 191 15-minute podcasts on topics related to English language arts, social studies, science, biographies, and more.
Finding a podcast
Simply select a category from the navigation menu and then scroll downward through our well-organized and thought-out subcategories to find the perfect podcast for your lesson. Or, use the keyword search feature on the “All Podcasts List and Search” page to quickly find exactly the topic you need.
Discussion questions included right in the app!
Each standards-aligned podcast includes a synopsis, discussion questions, health message, and character value. These are accessed right on the same screens where you access the podcasts. (Educators can purchase our complete Teacher’s Guide with detailed lesson plans and quizzes for each educational podcast.)
The Walking Classroom mobile app is fast and lightweight
The app is available for both iOS and Android. No downloading of podcasts is necessary, because the podcasts buffer on your device using available Wi-Fi or cellular data.
You probably have some questions…
No! When you click to play the podcast you want to listen to, it buffers the audio to your mobile device. Let it begin playing for about 1 minute and you’ll be ready to go for a walk, with or without Internet access.
Not at all. Our app does not include ads of any kind. Enjoy a completely ad-free learning experience!
On August 1, 2020, access to the majority of the podcasts will become subscription-based, but there will still be at least 20 free podcasts included on the app. The monthly subscription to access the entire podcast library will be only $3.99/month per user!
You can purchase the electronic Mobile App Teacher’s Guide that includes lesson plans and quizzes for all podcasts as well as program management guidance for implementing the program in a classroom or out-of-school time (OST) environment in our online store now. On August 1, 2020, we’ll also be adding an additional section to the app exclusively for educators to make it super easy to purchase our electronic Teacher’s Guide and access other supplemental resources directly from the app.
