5 Templates to get you started with going paperless!!! Are you looking for a way to get the most out of your Chromebook's or other internet connected tools? This is a great place to start. All of the design work has been figured out for you. You will just need to collect your materials (links and other digital files) and copy/paste them into the template. These templates were designed specifically for Google Apps for Education. You will at least need access to Google to open the file. After that, if you do not use Google in your teaching, you will need to copy and adapt the content to your preferred software.
There are several names used to describe this approach, such a Hyperdoc, monolinks or even a Google doc with links. It’s not really about the links, rather it’s the design of the lesson that will make it powerful. The templates offered in this package provide a structure for a digital learning experience. They can guide students through a project, providing sequential activities or offering a discovery experience where students explore a topic curated by the teacher. While it’s possible to include links to traditional worksheets formatted as a PDF (that can be completed online with a program like DocHub), these templates should be used to offer a much richer experience. Students should be collaborating, creating, exploring, and reflecting. Once the hyperdoc is built, teachers should focus their efforts on guiding students through the process and providing timely, meaningful feedback. Teachers will serve as instructional designers, curators, and learning facilitators.
Included in the package are links to the Google Doc templates, a version in PowerPoint format, as well as a PDF copy of each template. Again, the templates are best suited to the Google format, but you may find a need for the other formats so they are included as well.
