ClassHook Helps Teachers Use Television Clips in Their Classroom

April 4, 2017

Long gone are the days of running to the VCR with a blank video tape to record a clip from a television program. There are now much easier ways to bring compelling content into your classroom. ClassHook is a tool that helps teachers accomplish that goal. Instead of searching through YouTube for perfect classroom television clips to start a lesson or illustrate a concept, ClassHook helps teachers with the process of finding educational moments from popular television shows and movies.

Teachers can use ClassHook to improve student engagement and content retention in the classroom by making connections to popular television shows and movies. Not only does ClassHook save time you time as you search for the “just right” video, it helps you locate engaging, inspiring, and culturally-relevant video content that is appropriate for your next lesson. The demo video below gives a quick, one-minute overview of ClassHook so you can get a feel for just how easy the platform is to you.

ClassHook Helps Teachers Find Classroom Television Clips

As a former one-to-one iPad classroom teacher who used free applications with her students, I’m super excited that ClassHook is completely free to use. You will need to create an account to access their full library. Once you’re logged in you can bookmark favorite clips to easily find them later and create your own playlists. Just like you can see in the video above, ClassHook has search filters so you can find a video that is just right for the grade level you’re teaching. It also lets you search using filters for clip length and name of television series or movie title.

The team at ClassHook shared with me that most of the clips on their website have been vetted by a group of teachers to make sure they are a good fit for classroom instruction. Right now they have a library of over 1,000 clips. The clips cover a wide range of topics. Teachers can even use embed codes to place clips into classroom presentations.

Teachers can submit their own clips to ClassHook to grow the website’s library. Additionally, you can request clips from them (for free) if you don’t find exactly what you’re looking for.
