Integrating Technology Colleagues,
Last week I learned about HyperDocs, and I am excited about the possibilities for them in adult basic skills (including ESL/ESOL) education. A HyperDoc is a Google Doc that is designed as a lesson using multimedia, in an engaging, colorful format, with activities, audio, video, assessment. Think of it as a "lesson plan" for adult learners, or for professional development for teachers of adult learners. I learned about this in a webinar I was presenting on the Media Library of Teaching Skills (MLoTS) to colleagues in Texas from a participant in the webinar, Ashly Winkle. Since then I have learned that other colleagues have made or want to make Hyperdocs for the teachers or adult learners they work with.
Have you made a HyperDoc? Would you like to make one? Do you want to learn more about making them and how they can be used? If you have made one and can share it please let us know, and gives us a link to it.
