How can you support yourself?
Education is exceptionally important. Education enables all peoples to improve their life chances. At Howard House School you have the opportunity to discover and harness your potential. ‘ClassCharts’ and ‘GCSEpods’ are important tools you can use to support you in achieivng you potential at Howard House School. See below a brief explanation on both these tools:
ClassCharts is an excellent tool to monitor how you are managing your attitude to learning in school – what is going well for you? what areas could you improve upon?
This is best decribed by one our parents/carers:
“It’s like Twitter and Facebook, you can see real-time how well they are doing in school. I can also see the homeworks they have been set. This helps me support them, even learn with them”.
GCSEpod will enable you to learn independently using a variety of electronic devices, such as:
- Mobile Phone
It is our hope this excellent resource will help you learn outside the classroom – this will become the way we deliver homework to you. Recent events show us that you will at times have to learn independently with very little warning. I personally feel this resource will help both the school and you work together to continue learning.
In order to access the resource, you will need access to the internet and one of the electronic devices listed above. They can also download a free of charge app that will make entry to the website quicker and more convenient to use on their mobile phones/devices. The school will also be able to track how often they use GCSEpod.
Please click on the links below to access both websites. If you do not have password, please contact the school straight away.
