GCSEPod is the ideal resource for SEN students
We have recently added two brand new features to GCSEPod which make it easier easier for SEN students to achieve more in their GCSEs.
Our Pods now include subtitles which can be toggled on and off for individuals and altered to suit all learning needs. Look out for the pink CC (“closed captions”) symbol next to a Pod indicating it now has subtitles. Once the video is playing, click the CC icon and select “English CC”.
Once turned on by an individual, they appear on all Pods until turned off.
Subtitles appear even in full screen mode or via the apps.
Text colour, size, font and background colour can all be changed for greater accessibility
All subtitles have been rigorously checked for accuracy.
Just to let you know, we have a specialist Hearing Impaired Unit on site. With the new subtitles, for one girl in Year 11, it has been amazing. Her performance in English jumped massively, this has revolutionised her life.
Alternate playback speed
Let students learn at their own pace with our new alternate playback feature Which lets students slow down or speed up Pods.
This is fantastic for EAL or SEN students who want to take things at their own pace.
Playback speed can be altered to match a student’s ability.
Slow down Pods with a minimum playback speed of 0.5x or speed up to a maximum of 1.5x its normal speed.
All images and subtitles automatically adjust to the speed set by the user.
Speeds are altered for all Pods in a topic unless changed.
