I recently listened to an amazing podcast about Roger Wager who wrote the first user manual for the Apple computer and then later wrote a program called HyperSudio. Technology & Learning Magazine wrote “Most Important Educational Technology Gurus of the Past Two Decades”: Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Seymour Papert, Roger Wagner”.
And Steve Wozniak wrote: “Roger Wagner didn’t just read the first book on programming the Apple computer – he wrote it.”
I later tweeted about his newest invention HyperDuino and to my surprise he contacted me and sent two kits! I now have five students who are joining the Maker movement by learning from doing!
“The HyperDuino does for the maker movement what HyperStudio did for hypermedia: it makes it possible for everyone, regardless of age and experience, to create interactive maker projects.”
– Roger Wagner, designer of the HyperDuino
If you are looking for a great way to get students involved in interactive learning that is self-paced and so much fun, then let them lose with HyperDuino and a computer!
