GCSEPod is proven to engage students, consolidate subject knowledge and accelerate progress at the same time as – crucially – reducing workload. The company was established in 2010 and is trusted by 1500 schools at home and abroad. GCSEPod has deep expertise in developing core content in a rapidly changing environment, not just quizzing (although this is important) but subject knowledge that can be retained and recalled.
Teach, assess, monitor, manage and engage with GCSEPod:
Teach – Study smarter not harder, with scientifically proven cognitive learning techniques. GCSEPod has introduced six new Study Smart Pods covering interleaving, retrieval practice and spaced learning, helping you and your students to understand how to use GCSEPod to maximum benefit in these areas. Create playlists using exam-filtered content for 27 subjects delivered through the unique ‘Pods’.
Assess -The star of the assessment area is Check & Challenge. Where other assessment systems are the equivalent of giving students a list of answers in the back of a textbook, Check & Challenge is more like giving every student a coach to help them navigate the answers; a personal academic coach, providing scaffolded support. For the teacher: Formative diagnostic assessment with meaningful and actionable feedback. No wasted time and accelerated progress.
Monitor & manage – GCSEPod you can review usage by user (teacher or student), group (e.g. Year 11 or Form 7B), individual and category (e.g. Pupil Premium).
Engage – GCSEPod engages students in a way that encourages confidence and self-belief – it has been called the ‘Netflix’ of GCSE content.
In addition to all of this you are supported by the PodUp team who will coach you for the life of your subscription on how to get the best out of GCSEPod.
