First there were Webquests. Then came Curriculum Resource Pages. Now, the next evolution is here – the Hyperdoc! Hyperdocs are digital lesson plans that are designed by teachers and given to students. They provide access for students to all content and learning in one organized digital space. HyperDocs shift instruction by giving students the content to explore before direct instruction, and by asking students to apply their learning using the 4 C’s: critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity.
In this workshop, we will look at the Hyperdocs trend in education, review different tech tools for designing and sharing hyperdocs with students, and examine how to use a Hyperdoc in a learning management system like Canvas.
