Extreme Pedagogy Makeover Using Multimedia Text Sets & HyperDocs


Screen Shot 2015-07-30 at 10.35.39 AMIn this edWeb.net webinar presented by the DigitalEDU community, teachers learned how to improve their digital pedagogy instantly by creating HyperDocs and multimedia text sets – powerful inquiry based learning tools. HyperDocs are digital tools that replace the worksheet method of delivering instruction. Multimedia text sets are collections of content that you can curate, package, and efficiently push out to students using Google Docs, Forms, and Spreadsheets. Our presenters, Lisa Highfill, Kelly Hilton and Sarah Landis, discussed how using Google apps for packaging and workflow can greatly enhance reading and writing instruction. This webinar explored the philosophy behind HyperDocs, how to create them, and presented many examples that attendees can edit, revise, and use in the classroom. Additionally, attendees learned how creative packaging of digital web tools can be used to transform your lessons into interactive, multi-layered experiences for students. Great sites, such as Learning Bird, were explored which can be integrated into digital lesson plans to fit the needs of all students. This workshop is great for all grade levels and subjects including administrators and coaches, and each participant left the session with new thinking about how to effectively integrate digital instruction.
