About the Book
School leaders and classroom teachers alike are looking for ways to integrate maker learning into their work in meaningful ways, but they simply don’t have the time, capacity or resources to review, synthesize or adapt existing models into their own school systems. The Maker Playbook offers a vision and the tools needed to streamline the process, including high-impact strategies you can put directly into action to foster an inclusive maker learning environment. In these pages, you’ll find ready-to-use strategies and resources to guide learners in the design thinking maker learning process. With the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Guidelines as a basis, you’ll get ideas for helping all students learn, and guidance for developing the scaffolding to help all learners reach levels of higher-order thinking and engagement.
