“It’s technology and innovation for education at its best”

Teach Secondary magazine recently announced the winners and finalists of the first Technology & Innovation Awards in association with LEGO® Education, and we’re delighted to say that we won the award for Technological Innovation of the Year!

The brand new awards are specifically focused on technology and innovation in the classroom and recognise products and resources as well as teachers, authors and bloggers. The final judging decisions were made by a high profile panel of education experts. Find out more about the award and winners here.

“GCSEPod does what all the best products do: it makes you ask, ‘why didn’t I think of that?'”

Judge David Morgan said, “Providing excellent quality content in an easily accessible audio file means that students can study a topic simply by popping in their headphones, all without disturbing their day-to-day activities.”

“It’s so simple! Genius”

Needless to say, the entire GCSEPod team is thrilled to have won this award!

“GCSEPod has been growing from strength to strength since its debut at BETT in 2010 and that is all thanks to our dedicated team and their commitment to GCSEPod innovation and excellence. To be recognised by such a prestigious and popular publication is praise indeed.”

Co-founder and director Anthony Coxon.

“100% of our year 11 students achieved at least 5 GCSEs at grades A*-C.

82% achieved at least 5 GCSEs including Maths, English and/or Welsh at grades A*-C. An impressive 27% of grades were at A* or A compared to the national average of 19.4%.

We strongly believe that GCSEPod has played an important role in improving the outcomes for some of our pupils. Indeed, some of our top users exceeded their target grades in many areas and have now returned to the sixth form to continue their studies at A level.”

Ysgol Uwchradd Aberteif

There is a very clear correlation between the subjects with the most pronounced raises in attainment (English Literature, Chemistry, Biology and Physics) and those that had the highest GCSEPod usage.

In addition, the student with the highest GCSEPod usage was also our highest achiever.

Because there has so clearly been an impact on the departments that utilised GCSEPod effectively, we will be looking to increase the use of GCSEPod across the school in coming years.”

Andrew Ost - Deputy Head,
Fort Pitt Grammar School

“We’ve used GCSEPod for a year and the results speak for themselves!

Not only did we see a rise in headline measures across the board with our highest user of GCSEPod gaining 7A* – but the students and their parents love it!

It’s fun, user friendly, and easy to use in a variety of ways – on a mobile device, in school, at the heart of our mentoring and intervention strategies, for flipping learning, and to deliver positive engagement that parents can see. Plus we’ve only just scratched the surface!”

Dominic Howkins - Vice Principal,
Ormiston Sudbury Academy
