The Maker Movement is for everyone. Roger Wagner's awesome software HyperStudio has allowed my students and me to create amazing interactive projects from earliest days of teaching to creating interactive iBooks Author widgets today. In this podcast I interview Roger Wagner. Roger Wagner is a former Physics, Chemistry and Math teacher, patent-holding inventor, and was named by Technology & Learning Magazine as one of the top 5 "Most Important Educational Technology Gurus of the Past Two Decades", along with Seymour Papert, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs.
