Seneca

Seneca is a brilliant site where students are guided through their revision. The site presents students with information in various formats, and then asks questions. The software remembers how students answer, and will ask similar questions again if students are struggling to get them correct.

 

Currently passwords cannot be reset by school, so it is vital students remember their login details and set a valid email address in their account details.

Youtube

An online question bank. Students can answer quizzes set by their teachers, or set by themselves. The quizzes marked instantly. This is very useful for checking how revision is going, but the site doesn’t provide any help on how to answer questions so needs to be used with something else.

Youtube – Primrose Kitten: A fantastic selection of videos that cover the entire course. Use alongside making revision notes, cards or answering exam booklet questions. Some videos are very long, be careful of passive revision from *just* watching the videos.

 

Youtube – FreeScience Lessons: A very good set of videos showing the entire science course. The videos are relatively short, and cover just the content and methods needed.

Media Studies

Youtube and BBC Bitesize

BBC Bitesize: Useful for generic industries information in particular.

 

YouTube – The Media Insider: Useful for revision of theories and some industry information.

 

YouTube – Mrs Fisher: She covers a range of topics – be careful as a lot of it is A-level information and you won’t need that level of detail, so just revise the things that we’ve already covered in class.
