Revision on the Go
Exams are fast approaching and I know many of you are keen support your child as they prepare for this challenging time. As such I wanted to make you aware of a resource we have invested in called ‘GCSEPod’.
There are about 11 weeks until the examination season begins. This means that your child should now have started revision, for the summer examinations, to ensure they are as successful as possible.
GCSEPod provides over 6,000 3-5 minute bursts of visual learning ‘Pods’. GCSEPod also maps ‘Pods’ according to exam boards and specific papers for each subject.
Some of the students are already regular users but others have yet to take advantage of this resource. I would be very grateful if you could discuss GCSEPod with your child. If they are already using the resources you could perhaps ask them for a demonstration. If they are yet to use it this might be an ideal opportunity to explore the resources together. Viewing 5 Pods a day is only approximately 20 minutes of revision! GCSEPod helps to make revision seem much more manageable with organised Exam–Specific Playlists, which you can find in the My Courses area of your child’s account.
Revision on the Go!
One of the best things about GCSEPod is the ability to download the content onto a mobile device so it’s like the students are carrying text books in their pockets without the need for an internet connection! The GCSEPod app can be downloaded from the App Store for added convenience (Apple and Android are supported) and content downloaded straight to your child’s device. GCSEPod is the perfect resource to ensure your child isn’t missing out on their key revision time. Together we might even be able to make their smartphones a learning aid instead of a constant distraction!
Your child has already been registered with GCSEPod and simply needs to click on the GCSEPod link in the school VLE.
