Participants will learn the importance of using Primary Sources and Hyperdocs to differentiate instruction, nurture curious learners, and foster inquiry based learning.
Participants will walk away with resources to use to create their own hyperdoc.
Participants will gain access to various platforms containing ready-made Hyperdocs for next day usage.
First third of the workshop:
* review how much interaction participants have with hyperdocs
* what is and not a hyperdoc
* using an infographic, notice and wonder about before/after use of hyperdoc
Having participants first evaluate their understanding and experience with hyperdocs helps me know my audience. Reflecting on what is and what is not a hyperdoc is useful to set up participants for creating their own.
Second third of workshop:
* Review a doc containing a breakdown of all the parts of a hyperdoc
* Review a site that houses hyperdoc templates
* Evaluate platforms used to create hyperdocs (GDocs, GSlides, Padlet, Buncee, Thinglink,
* Sign-up for free website containing subject specific hyperdocs for teachers to use
* Share and add to the list of sites to search for primary sources
Final third of workshop:
* Time allowed for participants to search available hyperdocs, choose one, and modify to fit
needs of current students to share with group
* Time allowed for participants to begin to create a hyperdoc from scratch using templates
provided on site. Participants may work in groups or individually.
* Share created hyperdocs
* Answer any questions
"HyperDocs are purposefully designed digital lessons and can transform your class. They truly are so much more than a doc with links.
The creators of HyperDocs — Lisa Highfill, Kelly Hilton, and Sarah Landis — describe them as a transformative, interactive Google Doc replacing the worksheet method of delivering instruction, the ultimate change agent in the blended learning classroom." - Ditch That Textbook
