What is a HyperDoc?
Quotes below from The HyperDoc Handbook ©2016 by Lisa Highfill, Kelly Hilton, Sarah Landis
"Transformative, interactive Google Docs that replace the standard worksheet method of delivering instruction." This digital lesson design and delivery of instruction provides "the teaching pedagogy" to help make "important decisions about what to teach and how to teach with technology to redefine the overall student experience." Each HyperDoc "begins with a strong lesson design, curates quality instructional content, and packages learning in a way that engages learners." It also "shifts the focus from teacher-led lectures to student-driven, inquiry-based learning allowing students to learn through exploration."
Social Media... A Love Hate Relationship
What are Blogging Buddies?This is information directly from the site linked above.
"Blogging Buddies were inspired by Jennifer Hogan's "Compelled Blogger Tribe!"
It's designed to be a chance for Ed Tech Coaches (and those tasked with helping teachers integrate technology) to connect, network and learn from other coaches via blogging. Many ed tech coaches value blogging as a form of personal growth and reflection in their practice, but don’t always receive that online feedback in the form of comments from our coaching peers that we’re hoping for. So Blogging Buddies groups will be made up of about 5 ed tech coaches bloggers who come together to commit to posting on their blog at least once a month, read one another’s blogs, comment on one another’s blogs, and share the posts with their own networks. That’s it!"
