Develop a Maker Mindset

A star

The best way to understand maker learning is to experience it first-hand.

You can’t mandate a maker culture. You need to make it. Dedicate time for students and teachers to have maker learning experiences and reflect on them so that they can help create the school’s culture of maker learning.
