The success of a learning experience is incumbent upon identifying its purpose with respect to its goals, mission and affiliations, programmatic strengths and values.


The key to the success of any maker-based learning experience rests in the role that people play--from design, to facilitation, to support and the learners themselves, people are at the heart of making.


The pieces and parts--tools, materials, equipment, and space--that are utilized in a maker experience should align to its purpose and people who use them as elements of learning.
