Did you know pupils could leave secondary school in England without studying a novel or play by a non-white author!
In light of this we are delighted to announce the launch of our brand-new Pods, Celebrating British and Irish Authors of African and Caribbean Heritage.
The first in a series of planned special projects that aims to shine a light on subjects that have historically been overlooked in education, these Pods explore the literary contributions of the African diaspora in the UK and Ireland
Above is a short show reel to give you a flavour of the content.
"Blended learning is here to stay as an essential complement to classroom teaching. For our school it has been a hugely positive legacy from the pandemic. We have embraced learning new skills and grown in confidence. Some lessons are now live-streamed and all learning material can be accessed remotely if needed. Platforms like GCSEPod have been especially popular with pupils and teachers; we now feel equipped to face whatever challenges come our way in the future."
Bob Jackson, Assistant Principal at Goole Academy
Whatever the grading future might bring, being able to evidence student progress and attainment with confidence is no longer a 'nice to have' but a necessity. We offer extensive reporting and easy-to-read data.
We are the most reviewed and the highest rated on EdTech Impact. Take a look at what our happy customers are saying.
Significantly improves attainment
“Students who may have fallen short due to lack of understanding a question in an exam can target the area of knowledge they are missing through a RAG system. GCSEPOD helps me to target students in those specific areas to improve their understanding and in turn, increase their attainment.”
Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
“I Use GCSEPOD as homework for students so they have an good foundation and understanding of the key facts ready for their next Science lesson. This in turn, builds their confidence to answer questions.”
Significantly reduces teacher workload
“No paper homework, student's use POD to demonstrate their knowledge when completing homework.”
Significantly improves teacher knowledge and skills
“As a RQT, my knowledge is something which will develop throughout my career. As it does in every teachers career. Using POD allows me to be ahead of the game in my understanding.”
Significantly builds student knowledge “Oh my! I set pods as intro's to new topics etc and love when a student tells me a fact and says 'It said in the pod..'”
