HyperDocs Homerun!
Are you Googley? Googley or not, HyperDocs are a game changer when teaching with technology. It doesn't matter what grade or subject you teach; deliver digital content via a HyperDoc and your students will knock it out of the park. HyperDocs are digital lessons created using the G Suite tools (Google); packaged for students in an engaging, inquiry-based learning style. Because HyperDocs are created using G Suite, they are easily shared and collaborated on via Classroom, Gmail, or in Drive. They are much more than a digital worksheet; the lesson design and content includes collaboration, critical thinking, communication, and creativity, yet delivered in one document. In HyperDocs Homerun!, you will be exploring the possibilities of a HyperDoc, learning the basic lesson design process, and applying that knowledge by being given hands-on work time to create.
