Have you ever looked at a Choice Board or Hyperdoc and thought, “This is GREAT, but it doesn’t quite fit what I’m working on in class.”? In this session, participants will build upon their basic knowledge of Choice Boards and Hyperdocs, so the introductory CB & HD workshop and/or prior familiarity with Choice Boards and Hyperdocs are prerequisites for effective participation in this workshop. During this workshop, participants will be given the tools necessary to “remix” a template to fit their needs, as well as the tools needed to create a Choice Board or Hyperdoc from scratch. Time will be provided during this session for design and creation.
