The Whats and Whys of HyperDocs
"Learning is an exploration of the topics that I have passion for, am curious about, or haven't heard of yet. Instead of learning though, school is a place where I am told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it--down to a T." ----Jordan Moldenhauer, an AP Honors senior
- HyperDocs are transformative, interactive Google Docs that replace the standard worksheet/textbook method of delivering content.
- The term HyperDoc describes digital lesson design and delivery of instruction.
- A HyperDoc is the result of teaching pedagogy involved when making important decisions about what to teach and how to teach with technology to redefine the overall student experience.
- A HyperDoc is a lesson plan for students that uses a variety of web tools and results in more personalized instruction.
- HyperDocs begin with a strong lesson design, include the curation of high quality instructional content, and package learning in a way that personalizes learning.
- HyperDocs encourage collaboration, giving every student a voice, and a chance to be heard by their classmates.
- HyperDocs ask students to create and share authentic products.
- HyperDocs enable teachers to maximize class time and eliminate the one hand at a time discussion.
- HyperDocs can thoughtfully organize the Project-Based Learning process.
- HyperDocs enhance the curriculum; they aren't a substitute for it.
- HyperDocs can drive inquiry.
- HyperDocs allows teachers to feel empowered as lesson designers and creators.
- HyperDocs can package blended learning.
- HyperDocs bring innovation to the classroom and TRANSFORM the student learning experience by answering the question, "What is it I can do now as a teacher that I couldn't do before?" because ALL STUDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY.
- HyperDocs will transform students' learning if done right.
- HyperDocs allow you to incorporate the digital world in all you create.
- HyperDocs should be SHARED by teachers with other teachers. The more people that you add to your Personal Learning Network, the more you will learn and be able to share with your students.

HYPERDOCS MEET ALL STUDENTS' NEEDS!
FOR IEP STUDENTS
- IEP reading modifications can include using extensions such as Read & Write for Google or Mercury Reader that read aloud to the student or clean up a website with distracting ads. On a Google Doc, students can utilize the highlighter feature to identify important words and define them with the built in Dictionary Tool.
- IEP writing modifications can allow students to speak their writing ideas onto a Google Doc using the VOICE TYPING tool or to translate ideas into multiple languages. Teachers can give direct feedback to students on a document using the comments feature on Kaizena; Kaizena is an extension that records feedback and attaches it to the document.
- IEP modifications that include repeating directions or small-group instruction can be met by flipping lessons. Resource students can benefit from re-reading articles or re-watching videos as many times as needed if they are linked to a HyperDoc.
- Students can EXTEND their learning by clicking on the Explore tool in the Tool drop down menu or by clicking on the Explore icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.
FOR ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS
When students open a HyperDoc, they can take advantage of various web tool extensions that provide accommodations for English Language Learners. HyperDocs are helpful for developing English speakers. Embedded videos allow English learners to watch, repeatedly if necessary, for step-by-step visual and auditory support. Captioning in videos further supports learning.
- Google Translate allows students to write in their native language and translate it into English.
- Select and Speak lets students simply highlight text in a HyperDoc, and the computer recites the words.
- Duolingo adapts sentences to the student's fluency level, remembers troubling words over which the student hovers, and shows in-text translations if needed.
FOR GIFTED STUDENTS
A HyperDoc's design helps in the development of soft skills/the 4Cs (critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, collaboration, and creation). Student-created HyperDocs allow students to show their expertise in a topic.
HOW TO DESIGN/EVALUATE A HYPERDOC
THE 5 STEPS
1) Determine your objectives/desired outcome.
2) Select which learning cycle you will use.
Workshop Model Template
3) Select your packaging. Which Google App will you use? (Sites, Slides, Docs, Maps)
4) Build the workflow.
5) Design your HyperDoc.
When reflecting on a HyperDoc's effectiveness, you can use well-known guidelines such as Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK), the Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, or Redefinition (SAMR) Model, or the ISTE Student Standards.
