All maker tools have the potential to enhance and transform learning experiences. Cardboard, crayons, and duct tape can make just as much of an impact as high tech tools, like 3D printers and laser cutters.
The following graph is a rough approximation of the difficulty and complexity of adopting popular tools. Use this graph for help identifying what tools might be appropriate to acquire as your maker learning program evolves over time.
Changing or upgrading the tools available in their makerspace can be a big undertaking. To jump start the process, you can use one of our partially-completed worksheets for commonly used tools.
