The hyperdoc handbook: digital lesson design using google apps
The HyperDoc Handbook is a great resource for distance and online learning! It’s time to think differently about lesson design. Technology gives students immediate access to information, the ability to connect beyond the classroom, and a myriad of opportunities for collaboration and creativity. But do your daily lessons reflect this shift in instruction?
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. We can’t always do things the way we’ve always done them and with this book, we encourage you to consider, “What is it that I can do now that I couldn’t do before?”
