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.
