Walking while listening to educational podcasts is a powerful, engaging, screen-free experience for students to have right now. The Walking Clasroom capitalizes on the favorable link between exercise and cognitive function.  Students walk while listening to the same standards-aligned, kid-friendly podcast on topics including language arts, social studies, biographies and science. This approach is great for all students and is particularly effective for those with learning differences, reading problems and attention challenges. Kids love it!
