Providing a framework for maker activities helps ensure that their use is intentional and they lead to meaningful learning. Educators will directly experience this framework through participating in several cycles of frontloading or framing the activities, doing maker activities and reflecting on them using several types of technology-enhanced methods.

By the end of this workshop, participants will learn and be able to apply:
• new maker activities that can be brought to their own educational environments including paper circuits, circuit stickers, toy hacking, toy making,
• methods for frontloading or framing the maker experiences,
• a process for reflecting on making for the purposes of increasing learning following each make,
• a variety of technology-based methods or ways for having learners reflect on their maker experiences,
• strategies to bring a similar framework back to one's own work setting.
