Abstract: This research project explores using HyperDocs with pre-service teachers for classroom instruction. HyperDocs can provide a valuable resource for pre-service teachers to promote student-centered learning by personalizing instruction and scaffolding the content covered in class. The design of HyperDocs allows students to be self-directed in their learning, promotes collaboration as well as independence, and makes learning relevant to students. The implementation of HyperDocs frees teachers to take on a facilitator role, allowing them to work one-on-one with students who struggle with new concepts, while other students continue working at their own pace. Pre-service teachers will explore the use of HyperDocs as a pedagogical method by completing content tasks in pre-made documents during the semester, designing their own HyperDoc on content related to their certification area, and providing feedback following the experience.
