ClassHook | Educational Clips from Popular Media | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

These scenes not only teach students but also make learning more relevant. Students can associate a concept in class to an image they see in their everyday lives. As a result, this increases content retention and makes learning more fun.
