The Kingston Academy has invested in GCSEPod, the award-winning digital content and revision provider used by over 1,700 schools.
As subscribers your child will have access to GCSEPod’s library of over 6,000 ‘Pods,’ 3-5 minute videos designed to deliver knowledge in short bursts. GCSEPod makes learning and revision much more manageable: every Pod is mapped to the exam boards we use, and contains all the right facts, quotes, keywords, dates and annotated diagrams that your child needs for GCSE success across: Maths, English, the three Sciences, Geography, History, Religious Studies, Computer Science, Spanish, PE, D&T and Texts for Drama -all neatly organised into topics and exam playlists.
GCSEPod is both a desktop and mobile friendly site. Your child can access GCSE Pod via their Chromebook or download any Pod to their mobile device, and then they can watch them at any time, in any place, with or without internet. Reassuringly both Apple and Android have supported Apps via Google Play and the App Store.
GCSEPod also has the ability to act as a revision guide and knowledge organiser. It can identify gaps in knowledge and can automatically send playlists to help fill them, after completing any multiple choice homework set on GCSEPod by staff. It will deliver a follow up and personalised “Boost Playlist” of Pods relevant to their identified areas for development to continue and support their learning.
All pupils have been pre-registered with GCSEPod. They just need to go to the website, click 'sign in' and use their Google single sign-in.
