HyperDocs Template

HyperDocs have become one of my favorite tools for creating lessons that promote the 4 C’s. If you are unfamiliar with HyperDocs, I highly encourage you to visit the HyperDoc website for their AMAZING resources. In a nutshell, HyperDocs are “a transformative, interactive Google Doc replacing the worksheet method of delivering instruction and is the ultimate change a

gent in the blended learning classroom.” Many people think that a HyperDoc is a Google Doc that has hyperlinks – but it’s not that at all. It’s so much more!

HyperDocs are a digital document – yes – but they are also a completely packaged lesson that promotes deep learning. In most HyperDocs, the lesson design will follow this model: Engage, explore, explain, apply, share, reflect and extend. Within each of these parts, students are challenged to learn about the topic and/or demonstrate their knowledge. Within the HyperDoc, the teachers will design the learning experience for the students. The students will use the document to complete the tasks given by the teacher. A HyperDoc can be self-directed or could be completed in small or large groups. There is a lot of flexibility in how these documents are created and delivered. However, the most important part of HypDocs is creating a lesson that is engaging, challenging and promotes the 4 C’s.

In the sections below, I have shared three templates that I have created for the HyperDoc model, as well as examples to help support you. These are totally FREE resources that you can use in your classroom.
