Hi, I'm Alex!

I was very recently a student, having just graduated college. I am trying to improve education because I feel my learning could have been more engaging and relevant. As a student, I noticed that the professors I considered the best teachers employed many different techniques to keep me engaged in class. They changed up the pace of class by using video clips, activities, simulations, and more. I also loved it when professors showed me clips from TV shows and movies I recognized, such as The Simpsons, and Family Guy. I became intrigued with the idea of using popular media to convey educational concepts, so I started ClassHook, which helps teachers find educational clips from popular TV shows and movies. I want to spread the enjoyment that I experienced while learning from these clips to students everywhere else.
