What is Audiopi?

Audiopi is a GCSE and A Level podcast tutorial service, aimed at providing universal access to superb teachers. We create and deliver outstanding, highly immersive podcasts, written by experts - for use at home, on the go, or at school. Curricula aligned and exam board approved, our podcasts help teachers and students get results - generating interest, excitement and engagement in topics, reinforcing learning, deepening understanding, enabling own pace study, and ultimately supporting better recall and revision.

Recommended Usage

Not specifically, though focussing student listening to the podcasts relevant to lesson plans amplifies the impact and benefit of each taught lesson. Each podcast series is created to exam board specification to give students exactly what they need to understand their subject. Individual podcasts are around 15 minutes long, are highly accessible, and designed to maximise engagement & focus, and are complete tutorials on key themes. Teachers licensing specific subjects/topics, can directly guide podcast tutorial usage to support their lesson plans & progress through a subject/topic. Our podcasts improve subject engagement, knowledge foundations, deepen understanding, and encourage critical thinking. It's good practice to use our podcasts to prep for, and then reinforce, lessons. We can also guide homework, fast-track periodic recall, and revision very easily - with selection of the appropriate podcast from each topic.

Requirements

An internet connected device with audio output (headphones or speakers) is all that is required to access our podcasts once the relevant School, or Individual Subscription license has been purchased. Our platform works on Web & Mobile Web browsers, and we have iOS and Android apps for a mobile experience. Schools Subscribers will be guided through the simple and basic set-up - which includes sharing and cascading a school username & login, and basic how-to guidance. A school's library will be pre-populated with licensed content - and can be added to simply, at any time. Individual Subscribers will create a username & password as part of the sign-up process, before being able to access what they need. We advise that individual subscribers (usually parents) check the exam boards that their children's schools use to navigate to the correct podcasts.

Training

We provide a simple user-guide PDF for schools, and best practice guides. No specific training is required - the beauty is in the elegance of the podcast content. Select > Click > Listen

Detailed, concise, easy to access and empowers pupils to take ownership of their own learning.

Tom found Audiopi:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    It has proved really helpful for a pupil that fell behind at the beginning of the course and was struggling to catch back up. The content has allowed her to consolidate her understanding at her own pace and vastly improve both her attainment and content knowledge.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    I regularly use the podcasts now to flip the classroom and have pupils listen to a podcast for their prep. This means they arrive ready to discuss more complex concepts and debates during the lesson.
  • Slightly increases student collaboration
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    Students are confident to work at their own pace using the podcasts. They seem to find the relatively short and punchy episode length accessible but also detailed.

Aug 2020

I use audiopi a lot with A level , the students love them and can access easily on the app to revise , listen to debate etc I wish they did more topics. I have limited access for GCSE history , but USA module very popular with students. Great revision aid.

Geraldine Rimmer found Audiopi:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    At A level aids developing an argument / interpretation by modelling. Shows key events in a wider context and aids pupils understanding and skill for essay writing leading to higher grades
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Develops understanding , makes links between topics , reinforces understanding and aids development of skills like significance
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    After listening to a podcast , discussion is developed. As the podcasts discusses different interpretations allows pupils to use own knowledge to debate , explain and analyse the topics. Really increases engagement in the learning process
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    Pupils are able to listen to the podcasts repeatedly , so are able to use with their wider reading etc. Weaker pupils gain confidence in their understanding , making notes to supplement their learning and feel more confident in applying these skills etc to essay writing thus improving their attainment
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    It’s another tool to engage and encourage debate / discussion. The podcasts are interesting and engaging , not like some very dull textbooks !!

Elizabeth Tunnicliffe

Head of English

Used Audiopi for 3 years

Jun 2020

I was an audio learner myself as a student, except in those days my father had to source lectures on my core texts on tape from publishers. He found many of the core texts on audio, but rarely found analytical material. Now this fills a gap long needed by audio learners. Horaay!

Elizabeth Tunnicliffe found Audiopi:
  • Moderately improves attainment
    We have enjoyed fantastic results for GCSE Literature since using AudioPi as a revision tool.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Often, the lecturers will have the very knowledge that a tired teacher could spend hours researching online. Here, you can at the click of a button, hear experts giving all the background context needed. For example, the Gothic features of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde were clearly explained in ways my weaker learners could understand.
  • Not significantly increases student collaboration
    Careful listening and pausing to replay is a personal activity.
  • Slightly reduces attainment gap
    What attainment gap?
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    The comparisons of the poems are really helpful. The lecturers often see links between poems that we cannot see while writing the lesson the night before a class. It is a Godsend to the overworked teacher whose brain is not supplying the answers readily.

Audiopi is an excellent resource for students, offering high level discussions and detailed comments about the texts studied. Students find the process of listening to the podcasts straightforward and the voices are engaging. I have also used Audiopi as part of a CPD offer for new staff and PGCE students who are unfamiliar with the various GCSE texts. They have all commented on how useful the material is.

Rebecca White found Audiopi:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Supports students' independent study and helps provide perceptive insights about texts.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    The podcasts offer detailed coverage of plot, theme, character and context, helping to enhance students' learning.
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    We have created student quizzes and group projects around the Audiopi podcasts to help students revise together. Students are also more confident during group work tasks after listening to podcasts as they feel they know the content better.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    It allows students who may not hear academic or higher level language at home to listen to sophisticated discussions about the texts but still in an accessible way.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    It has made setting homework much easier and reduces the need for constant review lessons.
