How can GCSEPod support learning and revision?

GCSEPod’s library of ‘Pods’ are 3-5 minute videos designed to deliver knowledge in short bursts. GCSEPod is a tool for revision; every Pod is mapped to an exam board, and contains the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams for GCSE success, all neatly organised into topics and exam playlists. 

We have pre-selected the correct exam boards for the Highfield school, so you can be sure you are accessing the correct content. 

Please ensure you focus your English Literature revision on the following:
Romeo and Juliet - Shakespeare
Blood Brothers - Modern Drama
Christmas Carol - 19th Century Novel
Power and Conflict - Poetry 

You can browse the GCSEPod library and create your own playlists, just as you would if you were listening to music. There are many activities to complete on GCSEPod as well as watching Pods. These will help your progress and knowledge and help you build skills in preparation for GCSE exams. GCSEPod has the ability to identify knowledge gaps and automatically send playlists to fill them. You will receive personalised “Boost playlists” of Pods, relevant to your identified areas of weakness. 

How do I log in?

GCSEPod can be used online, on a laptop, tablet or computer. Alternatively, you can download the Pods to a mobile device. With this option, you can watch Pods at any time, in any place, with or without the internet. To do this you will need to download the free GCSEPod app from the App Store (Apple and Android are supported).
