NOW launch Your Classroom Podcast

It is very exciting to launch your classroom podcast. You can start with a “grand opening”. A “Grand Opening” allows you to :

  • Build Hype and Excitement
  • Reach More Audiences
  • Boost Engagement
  • Build Relationships

Pick a date and begin planning your “Grand Opening.”

How to Promote Your “Grand Opening”:

  • Posters throughout the school
  • Advertise on the school news
  • Share with families through newsletters and emails
  • Make flyers for students to share

Your “Grand Opening’ can be a launch party in your classroom. You can invite

  • admin
  • teachers
  • students
  • parents
  • families

Launch Party Stations for the Guest

For launch parties, you can setup stations for your guest to rotate through and your students can be in charge of sharing the podcast information with them. For the stations, students can sign up for the station that they are most interested in.

Podcast Process Stations

You can setup podcast process stations. These stations allow your guests to rotate through and learn all about the process. Your students can sign up to share a part of the podcast process and how their classroom podcast was planned and formed.

PoDcast Job Stations

You can also setup stations for each of the podcast classroom jobs. These stations allow your guests to rotate through and learn about the job that make and keep your classroom podcast going.

Using stations at your launch party allows all students to have choice in what they share and have a meaningful part of the party.

Listening to Your First Episode

After sharing the podcast process, jobs and your recording space it is time to share your first podcast episode. With everyone there, listen to the episode together. Once you have shared your episode at your launch party, you launch it on podcast platforms if you would like, share it on a private or public youtube channel, or share through a shareable drive.


Getting feedback is very important for your podcast and your students. In my complete classroom podcast set, I have included various feedback forms in print and digital formats.

  • Podcast Episode Feedback
  • Future Epsiode Survery
  • Self-Reflection Survey

This classroom podcast journey has been a lot of fun! Thank you for being part of it! I will continue to keep you updated on our journey with “The Middles” and their podcast.
