A Dedicated System for High Schools
Every high school teacher understands their unique situation. They inherit a cohort of students every year for which they have no control over their early learning, but are then tasked with effecting a high quality education for these students regardless of their skill set.
BRPOD is your High School SAFETY NET so that regardless of early learning, the future will still be positive with the effective traditional learning methodologies involving reading, writing and maths in our digital world.
Start with some students today and in two weeks time you will know that this is real. Simply one hour per day for a fortnight to see an amazing change in your students. Sign up here

EVIDENCE BASED: RESEARCH FINDINGS; what should happen is the explicit teaching of reading in Years P-3 with a method of Phonological Awareness and Synthetic Phonics. This provides the literacy foundation moving forward. BUT what if it doesn't work?
ABC Four Corners: Nov 2019
"We are seeing a failure of reading progression from Year 5 that when the students arrive in Year 9 they have seemingly stagnated with many students still back at their Year 5 level. We are unsure why?"
I can tell you why! It has to do with neurological neccesary/sufficiency. Aphasia studies (loss of speech following brain injury and its rehabilitation - faculty Speech Pathology) demonstrate that dosage frequency impacts on the brains ability to attain a 'sufficiency' that enables spontaneous ongoing growth. I hypothesise that 'the shift in societal use of 'screens' is resulting in insufficient practise to adequately bed in the skill of reading to the sufficient level that is referred to as 'automaticity'.'
UNIQUE solutions are now needed to counter this shift. Performance of early reading instruction by our primary schools is demonstrated to be competent as is reinforced by the year 5 Naplan data.
Rather than levelling blame towards the higher education levels or vice versa, if we as a society wish to have both a liberal attitude towards the choice of a 'screen savvy' youth and also a highly literate one, then we must seek to counter the deleterious effects of screen time through innovative solutions
...For this reason, innovation very often comes from the “little-guy” or “a nobody”--the person or team working out of their garage with the vision to change their industry and the high aptitude for risk. Steve Jobs
BR is unique in that it gives schools and children a SAFETY NET.
BR will even function when the correct evidence based work was missed, poorly instructed or not learned owing to illness and other issues. more...
UNIVERSITIES, RESEARCHERS, GOVERNMENTS
We are yet to collaborate with any major organization. Don't miss out on this world first ground breaking technology. Jobs, careers, excellence in schooling, research, technology based export revenues and an opportunity to be at the vanguard of this world leading pioneering technology in education. I hope it is an AUSTRALIAN who contacts me first .
A world first!
The items above are all included within BRPOD Computer Lessons, but they can also be accessed in isolation for targeting any single deficit. A world first! Unique to BRPOD / ANDUP
EVIDENCE in Action:
High Schools currently using BR POD to great effect include:
New South Wales-
Dungog HS subscription duration 3 years
"it's the only thing that works!"
Taree HS subscription duration 3 years
"Completing our entire Year7 cohort"
Wauchope HS subscription duration 3 years
"Its so easy now" "Can I do it again - please?"
"It reboots their brain and they go back into class able to learn"
These schools have completed their own internal validation for effectiveness. Most are now rolling out across entire year levels. They all invite you to contact them to share their professional experience and the outcomes achieved. They are actively collecting data, but this of course takes many years and unfortunately is rarely formally published owing to the workload and expense.
BR actively supports the evidence based practice for the teaching of reading where P-3 uses Phonological Awareness and Synthetic Phonics and actively discourages Whole Word/Balanced Literacy.
BR innovates beyond the scope of the published evidence in a quest to reveal solutions. We have a special interest in Dyslexia and the High School cohort. ...more
