We are delighted to announce that we have recently invested in GCSEPod, the award-winning digital content and revision provider used by over 1,250 schools worldwide.
Every child in Year 11 now has access to GCSEPod’s library of over 6,000 ‘Pods,’ 3-5 minute videos designed to deliver knowledge in short bursts. GCSEPod makes learning and revision much more manageable: every Pod is mapped to an exam board, and contains all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that your child needs for GCSE success – all neatly organised into topics and exam playlists.
One of the best things about GCSEPod is that you can download any Pod to your child’s mobile device, and then they can watch them at any time, in any place, with or without internet. It’s like they’re carrying a whole set of textbooks in their pocket! This can be accessed via the GCSEPod app from the App Store (Apple and Android are supported).
GCSEPod also has the ability to identify knowledge gaps and automatically send playlists to help fill them. After completing any homework set on GCSEPod, your child will get a personalised “Boost Playlist” of Pods relevant to their identified areas of weakness. We strongly suggest you encourage your child to review these playlists regularly as this will speed up their progress.
We recommend that you talk about GCSEPod with your son or daughter – check that they’ve successfully logged into their account and encourage them to make use of this amazing resource throughout the assessment period. Once logged in, they can browse the GCSEPod library and create their own playlists – just as they would when they’re listening to music.
For more ways to support your child using GCSEPod, please visit www.gcsepod.com/parents where you’ll find lots more information and resources. There are also free webinars to help support your child and the full details you can find at www.gcsepod.com/gcsepod-webinars
If your child is in Year 11, they have already been registered with GCSEPod. All they need to do to login is either use the link on Frog or use the “sign in with Office365” button and use their usual school email address login details. When using the app they login with their school email address and their date of birth as the password in the format ddmmyyyy. If your child has any issues logging please ask them to speak to their tutor who can forward any further issues to me. GCSEPod will be launched to Year 10 students in the Summer term.
If you have any questions regarding GCSEPod please contact me on Rachel.firstname.lastname@example.org.
