The GCSEPod is here…..
GCSEPod is now available at Overton Grange School! We have subscribed to the award-winning service to give our students access to thousands of hours of professionally produced, audio-visual content which will benefit them throughout the coming year.
GCSEPod has over 4,000 teacher-written, audio-visual pods which have been produced specifically for learning, homework and revision. The Pods contain all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that our students need for GCSE success. They won’t need to use GCSEPod for long to see the impact; in fact, consistent use of just 10 minute chunks is proven to support achievement whatever the target grade.
The GCSEPod website can be viewed on mobiles, tablets and PCs and the Pods can be downloaded for offline viewing. The Pods are mapped to the curriculum and students can access pre-set exam playlists which collate all the Pods relevant to a specific exam into a neatly organised list. Once their account has been activated, students can browse the Pod library and create their own playlists – just as they would when they’re listening to music.
All students have already been registered with GCSEPod and simply need to activate their account and choose a username and password. To access GCSEPod for the first time, students should follow these simple steps:
- Go to gcsepod.com and click “Login” in the top right hand corner
- Click “New here? Get started.”
- Select “Student”
- Enter your name, date of birth and type in the name of the school. The school will appear in a dropdown list. Click on the school in this list to confirm it.
- Select a username, password, and a password hint to help you remember the password.
Once logged in, students can search for Pods by keyword, a specific exam or subject area.
Parents can support their child using the Parents site for GCSEPod. Just visit www.gcsepod.com/parents where you’ll find lots more information and resources.
If you have any questions regarding GCSEPod please contact Miss Auger who is GCSEPod Lead for the school. For specific technical advice please use the help pages on the website or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Raluca Cazacu (11EM) who was awarded the GCSEPod iPad for her excellent progress between Year 10 exams and Year 11 mocks, and for good use of GCSEPod. Raluca raised her average grade by over one grade and is on her target grade for most of her Mock exams – a fantastic achievement!
