McHugh, M., & McCauley, V. (2017). Hooked on science. Science in School The European journal for science teachers(39), 55-58.
In this article, Martin McHugh and Veronica McCauley present a modern and interesting way to get students more engaged during lessons. They describe a detailed procedure that can be followed by any teacher or adapted to the teacher s own needs and plans. As science teachers may occasionally find it difficult to make science lessons exciting, the idea of using videos as hooks may be a great help. This idea can easily be applied to almost every science classroom or lab, even using students own smartphones or cameras. The fact that these short science videos are produced by the students themselves offers extra added value.
