Described as “a transformative, interactive Google Doc replacing the worksheet method of delivering instruction,” the creators of Hyperdocs call them “the ultimate change agent in the blended learning classroom.”
In our September 15, 2020 webinar, Chippewa River Writing Project teacher consultant Jeremy Hyler (@Jeremybballer) shared his knowledge of Hyperdocs in a one-hour webinar. This was first in an ongoing series called Critical and Creative Strategies for Remote Teaching, and registrations for future sessions can be found on the program homepage.
In the session, Jeremy walked us through what a Hyperdoc is, what some of the best resources are for both looking for Hyperdoc ideas as well as for creating new ones, exactly why you should use a Hyperdoc, and how creative and flexible a Hyperdoc can be for both teachers and students in learning.
Because of its highly adaptive nature, a Hyperdoc can provide engaging, differentiated instruction during this time of digital and hybrid learning. This webinar is designed for beginners and has many great ideas and resources for you to check out!
Here are Jeremy’s resources discussed in his presentation, and are a great place to start out with hyperdocs:
