HyperDocs are are NOT just a doc with links. They are purposefully designed digital lessons and can transform your class.
The creators of HyperDocs — Lisa Highfill, Kelly Hilton and Sarah Landis — describe them as a transformative, interactive Google Doc replacing the worksheet method of delivering instruction, the ultimate change agent in the blended learning classroom. hyperdocs.co/about_hyperdocs
But what do they look like? And how do we use them in our classroom?
Sometimes we need to see clear examples and get advice from those already implementing them.
Enter the amazing #Ditchbook Twitter community.
In a recent chat moderated by Sean Fahey and Karly Moura, the #DitchBook community came out in full force to provide TONS of examples, resources, tips and ideas for how to start using HyperDocs in your classroom tomorrow!
Check them out in the summary of this week’s chat below.
AND as a special surprise we are making the #DitchSummit presentation on Hyperdocs available for ONE WEEK! Learn from @lhighfill @kellyihilton @SARAHLANDIS in this 45-minute overview. It won’t be open again til December! Click here to watch.
