If you're part of the generation that mixes and mashes, the generation that makes movies instead of just watching them, the generation that blogs and tweets instead of just reading or watching the news, the generation that makes podcasts instead of just listening to the radio, then you'll want to get to know HyperStudio.
HypterStudio's flexible environment offers students a creative space where they can express ideas and attitudes, probe and evaluate, all while using the latest technologies. Challenge your students to think critically and creatively while writing images, text, sound, movies, and animations. With elegantly simple tools and a drag-and-drop environment, younger users to the most sophisticated technology-using students can create digital culture.
