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. Learn how to create interactive experiences for your students to learn at their own pace. See examples of Hyperdocs and begin to create your own!
As an educator, you continually influence your student population, whether you realize it or not. We will explore the notion of "Digital Tattoos" for educators and reflect on our own online presence.

By leveraging social media, educational leaders can connect with experts across their communities and the world to expand their perspectives, build relationships, and create opportunities for student learning. Face-to-face networks provide leaders with opportunities to engage local peers in deeper conversations about the educational landscape. Understanding the social media landscape will equip leaders to help professional staff as they integrate these powerful tools in their instruction. This course will provide the knowledge and skills required to become connected leaders by focusing on multiple social media platforms (with an emphasis on Twitter) and productive face-to-face networking opportunities to help them leverage the power of social networks for professional learning and community engagement.
