About Us


When our schools adopted Google Apps for Education and equipped our classrooms with technology, we began asking: How can we truly utilize these tools to transform the student learning experience? It was then that we coined the term HyperDoc to define our digital lessons and started creating. Teaching with HyperDocs got us really excited about personalizing our lesson plans and instructional delivery.  We were feeling alive! Our students were engaged and excited. We knew we were on to something special. Teaching with HyperDocs has been the ultimate change agent in our classrooms and we hope it is for you too!
