Have you heard the hyperdoc buzz? Have you been looking for a way to personalize learning in a dynamic setting? Come listen to teachers and some students (need to know how many to bring), and you will see how their educational experience was revolutionized from a typical lesson to an odyssey into digital literacy, reading, writing, and STEAM skills. Students will share their work and thinking about the change, giving you a firsthand account on why you should jump on the hyperdoc train!
Hyperdocs allows educators to work with students as they go. We are able to give feedback throughout the process. Listening to students we are able to integrate more tools and activities based on their interests. Students collaborate with their teacher, classmates, and students in other parts of the world on their hyperdocs. They are able to build a strong classroom community, learning from each other as they go through the hyperdoc. Students ask questions of each other, teaching each other skills and strategies as they work through each hyperdoc. 
Hyperdocs bring the passion back to teaching. Educators work to design creative learning experiences that meet the needs of individual students. Various digital tools are immersed in the content area when using hyperdocs. Students can work at their own pace, collaborate with classmates both synchronously and asynchronously, and standards in all areas can be applied when using hyperdocs as a tool for learning. Hyperdocs can be created with the learner in mind, using a variety of Google tools to present the activity. There are plenty of choices the educator has to make when designing hyperdocs beyond the objective and goals of the lesson. The learning model hyperdocs uses is one that engages students, asks them to explore concepts, apply knowledge, explain what they discovered, reflect on the learning process, and extend thinking. 
The energy in the classroom has shifted, and a community of learners is being built. Hyperdocs can be created in any content area or to teach specific skills such as research or digital citizenship. It is important to know this is not a digital worksheet, rather a pedagogical revolution that brings learning to life. In this session we will explore hyperdocs in the content areas K-12 that are already created, learn about the process to create hyperdocs, and then have some time for attendees to make their own hyperdocs to support learning in the classroom. Teachers will leave with ideas to implement the next school day!
