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."
An Amazing Resource!
During the HyperDoc Bootcamp, I created a couple for myself. One is a self-paced introduction (or review) of G-Suite (Google) tools. Since I work with teachers to help them integrate technology in their classes, this is where I often have to start.
The second one is based on the ANCHOR coaching portion of the book Lead Like A Pirate by Shelley Burgess and Beth Houf. Click on the image of the book for more information.
All you have to do to use the HyperDocs for your own learning is to make a copy of it for yourself. You will need a gmail or school Google account in order to use the document. If you don't have either, it wouldn't hurt to create a Gmail account to check out all the amazing tools Google has to offer for FREE! Once you have the Gmail account, you have access to the tools mentioned in my G-Suite HyperDoc.
To find more pre-created HyperDocs, check out the HyperDoc Girls' website. Click on the Resources tab, then Samples to explore. You can also click on Templates if you are ready to try to create your own. Lot's of man-hours have been put into these documents, but these teachers are all willing to share so we don't have to reinvent the wheel! When you are ready to share your own, you can use Teachers Give Teachers to give and get HyperDocs from other teachers. You can also check out their Twitter account @TeachersGiveTeachers for even more great resources and #PLN members!
I could go on, but hopefully this will peak your interest to explore some more!

I'm an Instructional Technology Specialist for my district Special Education department. I have experience teaching K-8 special ed. and General Ed. Since I like technology more than some, I started this blog for teachers who love it too. Thanks for visiting!
