Recommended Usage

Encounter Edu is designed to be as flexible as possible. Teachers and parents may want to use just a single video or lesson. However, it has more impact when the different sections are integrated. For instance, teach a lesson, view a 360-degree gallery, take part in a live broadcast and then review.

Increased usage over time is linked to improved attainment above predicted grades.

Requirements

Encounter Edu

Encounter Edu requires a device with good internet connection. The website is responsive, so all sections can be viewed on a mobile, tablet or laptop and projected in a classroom. It may be easier to view downloaded resources on a tablet or laptop device. To use 360-degree media, classes can choose options from using projector and white board, tablets or smartphones and virtual reality viewers. For live lessons, teachers will need to display the live video and have access to Zoom or YouTube depending on the lesson they are joining.

A sound IT manager to white-list a few URLs in school and integrate GCSEPod with MIS. For teachers and students, using GCSEPod is very simple - like using Netflix or Spotify
