Hyper about HyperDocs


Want an overview of how to create HyperDocs for both individual lessons and units? At ISTE 2017, we'll use the Understanding by Design process to explore free online content resources designed to challenge critical thinking skills. For example, we’ll listen to the primary-source audiotapes of President Kennedy negotiating the 1962 integration of the University of Mississippi. They are part of an interactive timeline exercise that transports students inside the Oval Office.

The HyperDocs platform empowers the learner by beginning with the end in mind. Students can “drive” at their own pace and pause, refresh, or review content. Regardless of technological limitations or expertise, students can use HyperDocs to engage in digital collaboration. The design and delivery of the platform make providing feedback to the students seamless and more efficient. HyperDocs inspires teachers to consider creativity and digital-age learning as dynamic elements in the learning experience.
