A Message from Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

We know the pace of change today is rapid. Many students carry around more computing power in their pockets than we ever could have imagined. While information and answers are readily available, rarely do our students know how best to use it. How can we help our students take a more active role in their learning and best prepare them for the future? This is what excites me about HyperDocs.

HyperDocs are an innovative way to utilize Google’s Suite of Educational tools in dynamic ways that can truly transform the landscape of your classroom. Instead of students waiting to be told what to do when they arrive, they can simply open their HyperDoc and dive into the learning. HyperDocs can help you to move toward a more paperless classroom and can streamline your student/teacher workflow in more efficient, timesaving ways. When paired with Google Classroom, a powerful tool in its own right, HyperDocs become an epic instructional tool to help students take more responsibility and an active role in their learning.

As an experienced secondary teacher and Google Certified Innovator, I have designed this seminar specifically to meet your needs. We will explore how to create engaging, supercharged learning opportunities not only with HyperDocs but also with many other powerful Google tools. You will discover the best, current ways to fully integrate the Google Suite of Educational Tools and more in your program to greatly enhance your instruction. Whether you are brand new to HyperDocs and Google Tools or an experienced user, you will find practical ideas, classroom-tested projects, and timesaving productivity strategies.

I invite you to join me for a rich day of learning, exploring, sharing, and creating that will leave you excited, invigorated and empowered with many terrific strategies you can implement the very next day!

Sincerely,
Anne Truger

P.S. As a teacher, I know how challenging it is to choose where to spend your professional learning time. I promise – you will leave my seminar with a toolbox full of ideas and practical use-tomorrow strategies!
