Calling Year 11...
The academy is subscribed to a service called GCSEPod which is completely free for you to use and which we believe will be of great benefit to aiding your GCSE revision and studies.
GCSEPod has over 3,500 teacher-written, audio-visual podcasts produced specifically for mobile devices and containing 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.
All year 11 students have been automatically registered with GCSEPod and so to activate your account you just need to choose a username and password.
To access GCSEPod for the first time, students should follow these four steps:
1) Go to www.gcsepod.com and click “Login” in the top right hand corner
2) Click “New here? Get started.”
3) Enter their name, date of birth and choose their school
4) Select a username and password (to be used when they next login) and select the subjects they study
Once logged in, you can search for podcasts by keyword, by a specific exam or by subject area. You can create their own personalised learning playlists which can be easily downloaded for offline viewing.
Help guides explaining how to use the site are available in the “Help” section in the top navigation bar. If you have any questions regarding the GCSEPod service please contact Mr Trussell and/or Miss Steele.
