Sponsoring Company: The Walking Classroom
The Walking Classroom is a research-proven program of
audio podcasts that students listen to while they walk. Our STEM program
includes 60 science podcasts, including a science career series and supplemental
resources. Elementary students learn better, retain information longer, and want
to learn more about topics after listening and walking.
Attendees will: 1. learn about the research-proven benefits of listening to podcasts while walking as experienced by students; 2. find out more about the podcast content provided by The Walking Classroom, which includes Earth science, physical science, life science, and a careers in science series; and 3. get an overview of the additional resources provided that supplement each podcast and include video clips, downloadable worksheets, suggested hands-on activities, virtual field trips, and more!
