St Paul's Catholic College Providing Education For The Diocese Of Westminster
We are delighted to announce that after careful research and consideration we have recently invested in GCSEPod for Years 9, 10 and 11, an award-winning digital content and revision provider used by over 1,250 schools worldwide.
As a subscriber, your child 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. Make sure you download the GCSEPod app from the App Store (Apple and Android are supported) to access this feature. Class teachers will be able to assign specific pods to enable deeper learning linked to current content as well as specific exam style question to support the ‘Pods’. 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. Please encourage them to activate their account tonight but we will also be giving them an opportunity to do so in tutortime tomorrow.
For more ways to support your child using GCSEPod, please visit www.gcsepod.com/parents where you’ll find lots more information and resources.
Your child has already been registered with GCSEPod, so all they need to do is activate their account by following the instructions below. If your child has already activated but can’t remember their username and password, please ask them to contact a member of staff.
