Use Control K to Make a Hyperlink

A hyperlink is text that you can click on to open a webpage. If I say CLICK HERE and hyperlink the text it will open to a descriptive meme template. I ask my students to keep a list of activities they do and to hyperlink to their evidence. They list the activities on a Google Sheets spreadsheet and then click on the cell and use Control K to link that cell to the Google Doc they did.

Hyperlink Ends in K

A Hyperlink is Not a Hyperdoc

Note: A Hyperdoc is not a document with hyperlinks. A Hyperdoc should include the 4 C’s and be an inquiry activity.
