She creates tasks that a student is required to do along with tasks that they can choose to do at their own pace without due dates. By creating a variety of tasks it keeps the students engaged with different types of learning. It also makes them feel not so different from the other kids that may get to take classes that are not required but having none required projects of the child's choosing within their class.
I didn't know anything about Hyper Doc until reading Kathryn Nieves's blog. I though it would be a google doc with a bunch of hyper links explain the project to the kids but I was wrong.
I will definitely try to incorporate something like this in my future classroom, it is fun and engaging for students. I hope you will give Hyper Doc a try and see how it can help in your special education classroom!!
