We Offer Two App Options
For classrooms or large groups, subscribe to our web-based app in bulk and users can access it in their Web browsers on mobile devices or even computers. An optional Support Contract is also available!
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.)
The traditional app includes 26 free podcasts for you and your students to sample!
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. (For a limited time, educators who subscribe can get a free copy of our electronic Teacher’s Guide with detailed lesson plans and quizzes for each educational podcast.)
The Walking Classroom available for Android, iOS, and in your web browser!
The app is available for both iOS and Android and requires Wi-Fi or cellular data. A web-based version is also available for bulk purchases. This version can be accessed in any web browser.
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 a 1 minute or 2 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!
There is no functional difference in the two versions of the app. The difference is in how you access it and subscribe to it. The traditional app is designed for individuals or small groups (less than 10) and is downloaded from either app store (Apple or Google Play). It offers 26 free podcasts to try out and includes an in-app monthly subscription ($3.99/mo) to access the entire podcast library. Access to the traditional app is restricted to mobile devices (no computer access).
The web-based app is designed for larger groups or classrooms making bulk purchases. It is accessed from most any web browser on mobile devices and even computers. A shortcut icon can be created for your device home screen just like with a traditional app. The bulk subscription purchase is made outside of the app itself and all users are pre-registered. To get started, complete the “App Subscription Onboarding Form” or contact us directly at (919) 240-7877 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The monthly subscription to access the entire podcast library (191 podcasts!) on our traditional app is only $3.99/month per user! And, the app includes 26 free podcasts that you can test out. For a limited time, paid app subscribers get a free copy of our electronic Mobile App Teacher’s Guide that includes lesson plans and quizzes for all 191 podcasts!
For the web-based app, monthly subscriptions range from $3.99/month per user to as low as $2.09/month per user, depending on the quantity of user licenses and subscription term. See the pricing chart here.
We offer free online training, troubleshooting, and tutorial documents to all subscribers. Additionally, we will answer all app-related support questions via email.
If you need a higher level of support and are a web-based app subscriber, we offer an optional Support Contract. The contract includes things like a free electronic Teacher’s Guide, unlimited training for educators using the program, free changes to user accounts, and more. Learn more here.

For traditional app subscribers, visit the Teacher Resources section of the app for details. Once you subscribe, you’ll can access our electronic Teacher’s Guide, our free supplemental resources (for ALL 191 podcasts), free online training, and more.
Web-based (bulk) app subscribers will gain access to the guide (and other resources) during the onboarding process.

You’ll receive an email that includes a “secret code” that you must enter on the app screen in order to reset the password. Passwords must be at least 8 characters with both upper and lower case letters, at least one number, and at least one symbol. If you don’t see an email, check your junk mail or spam folder.
