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 teacherís 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 studentsí own smartphones or
cameras. The fact that these short science videos are produced by the students
themselves offers extra added value.
