GCSEPod for Year 10 & 11 students
Our school now subscribes to a service called GCSEPod which is completely free of charge to all students and staff. It is a resource that helps year 10 and 11 students to revise for their GCSE exams by providing short, interactive podcasts on a wide range of subject topics.
GCSEPod has over 3,500 teacher-written, audio-visual podcasts produced specifically for mobile devices and contains all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that learners need for GCSE success.
The GCSEPod website can be viewed on mobiles, tablets and PCs and the podcasts can be downloaded for offline viewing. The podcasts are also mapped to the curriculum and are designed to support students in the classroom, with their homework and during exam time. GCSEPod can also be downloaded as an App for mobile devices such as iPhones, Andriod phones and tablets.
Students - Why should you use GCSEPod?
GCSEPod podcasts are designed for mobile devices so it’s like carrying a huge pile of textbooks and revision guides around with you everywhere. Have an expert read and explain everything for you clearly and precisely with all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams on screen.
You won’t need to use it for long before you feel the impact. Consistent use in just 10 minute chunks is proven to support achievement right up to A*.
It will help you get organised:
Create personal podcast playlists to listen to in the run-up to a test or to help with homework.
Use the viewing history feature to return to podcasts you found useful or access your favourite playlist to go over topic areas you find difficult.
Download exam specific playlists, with everything you need to know for that exam all organised for you.
It can be as discreet (or loud) as you are:
Listen to GCSEPod podcasts anywhere with nobody knowing what you are doing. Listen privately on the school bus, when you’re walking the dog or shopping in town.
If you want to show off just how much work you’ve been doing or even recommend a podcast to a friend you can use the social networking links on the site to connect with others.
