"HyperDocs, a transformative, interactive Google Doc replacing the worksheet method of delivering instruction, is the ultimate change agent in the blended learning classroom. With strong educational philosophies built into each one, HyperDocs have the potential to shift the way you instruct with technology. They are created by teachers and given to students to engage, educate, and inspire learning.

Pineapple Chart Invite
From Mrs. Scarborough: The Pineapple Chart is back! Last year I made tremendous growth as an educator. As you know I have 3 kids and like you, have many other things pulling at me but I made a conscience effort to change my teaching. I did this by actively participating in the WWHS Teacher book club, became part of the tech team, listened to the many voxer chats, stalked twitter and participated in the Pineapple chart. This chart became an opportunity for me to learn from my colleagues. It was enlightening to see all of the amazing work being done.
What is a Pineapple Chart? ....A Pineapple Chart is a systematic way to put a “welcome mat” out for all classrooms. It's a central message board that lets other teachers know that you’re doing something worth watching today, and if they’d like to come by, your door is open. I am sharing the WWHS pinapple chart with all of you in hopes that you will actively participate. (There are also some great incentives for participating.... see the chart for information)
