Redefine your teaching approach by using Hyperdocs one-document designs. Customize your own designs or use tips from existing models. Foster a Hyperdocs philosophy using your existing technology tools to support blended and personalized learning. Plan engaging, self-paced, student-centered creativity using SAMR influenced differentiated pathways that guide deeper learning and creativity. Use of Google Drive is not required but is recommended for this course.
Effective HyperDoc usage takes students on unique and highly engaging digital journey to explore, define, display and extend understanding of curriculum goals. To be a successful HyperDoc creator, their purpose and structure must be understood. Teachers must examine models of Hyperdocs at various grade and subject levels as well as understand the underlying pedagogy and assignment preparation that make HyperDoc use effective. Four-course Modules guide you through this understanding and application.
Module 1 - Demonstrate understanding of HyperDoc purpose and design when used to support learning within a technology-rich teaching pedagogy. To be a successful HyperDoc creator, their purpose and structure must be understood. Teachers must examine models of Hyperdocs at various grade and subject levels as well as understand the underlying pedagogy and assignment preparation that make HyperDoc use effective.
Module 2 - Hyperdocs have a structure. It is important to find one or more design structures you will use. Too many variations can confuse students. Within the structure you want to emphasize independence, creativity and choice in product outcomes while preserving the expected goals of the lesson. Use of a basic HyperDoc template can help guide your development of designs that best suits your students for use with varying curriculum objectives. By the end of this module you will have studied HyperDoc template and design options, and created several of your own templates using both suggested digital tools.
Module 3 - Hyperdoc ability to enhance learning combines tools, your teaching philosophy and targeted objectives that enable Hyperdoc use to support learning. Understand the relevance and application of SAMR to technology integration by reading A Powerful Model for Understanding Good Tech Integration. Follow up with examples of aligning Hyperdocs and SAMR by reviewing Mentor Hyperdocs based on SAMR
Module 4 - You’ve researched HyperDoc purpose, design and templates, examined existing examples and have analyzed how you can infuse HyperDoc as a digital learning tool into your classroom. Create, depending on grade level and subject area, several new HyperDocs to use with students.Get Syllabus Ask a Question Register Now
