As schools transition to the new normal of virtual, online, and hybrid learning, save time and your sanity by packaging your online assignments! This workshop will explore the concept of digitally packaging all of your online content using Google Sites. Save yourself valuable instructional time and streamline your classroom workflow by packaging your assignments so that students have EVERYTHING they need in one place. Not only will this save you time when it comes to answering questions, but it will also come in handy when distributing absent work and communicating with demanding parents. Come see how you can use Google Sites to create a digital content library for your class!
HyperDocs create an interactive learning experience for students, allowing them to explore content, create and curate digital artifacts that demonstrate what they know, think, feel, and understand. The misconception about HyperDocs is that they are simply Google documents with hyperlinks in them. However, when used appropriately, they can transform teaching and learning into interactive, engaging, student-centered environments. Similarly, a HyperDoc doesn’t have to be only a Google Document, in this session we will explore how to use the HyperDoc process to transform the learning experience using the full Google Workspace: including Slides, Forms, Sheets, Drawings, and MyMaps.
