Evaluate your HyperDoc

Is this a HyperDoc or a digital worksheet? Ask yourself the following:

1. Does your lesson follow a specific lesson design? (step 2) These templates will help with your structure.

2. Did you include the 4 C's in your lesson? Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, and creation?

3. What level of critical thinking and technology did you integrate? Is this a simple recall task or does this push your student's thinking? Is it substitution or is the technology used transforming the learning?
