Session 4: Choice Boards & Hyperdocs Extended
Districts around the country are emphasizing the importance of instructional flexibility and student wonder over prescribed lesson plans. By using Choice Boards and Hyperdocs, teachers can facilitate learning that straddles the line between structure and fluid while emphasizing a holistic, child-centered experience for our learners. Participants will explore examples of Choice Boards & Hyperdocs, review best practices, and receive multiple templates to use. This session includes an additional fifteen minutes of building Choice Boards or Hyperdocs and Q&A

About our Instructor:
Since 2008, I have taken my love of education to K-12 teachers and administrators. In fall of that year, I started helping other teachers in my district incorporate Google Sites, Docs and other tools into their instruction. Later, I continued introducing educators to Google Apps by piloting a 1:1 Chromebook program in my high school English class in which my students self-published an anthology of their own writing.
I work in Charlottesville, VA where I am a Learning Technology Integrator. I have the pleasure of working alongside teachers to help them prepare students for a future that includes maker spaces, coding and authentic creation. I am currently focused on aligning ed tech practices with the research-based concepts from John Hattie’s Visual Learning studies. Additionally, I have my Master’s degree in Instructional Technology, am a Google Certified Trainer and Google Certified Innovator.
