About this Toolkit

The components shared in this Toolkit include the ability to

  • develop relevant design challenges that support curriculum areas and prior learning
  • understand, facilitate and engage in a design thinking process
  • participate in and facilitate a design charette
  • personally reflect on previous practice and facilitate group reflection

The materials were piloted and tested November 2013 when 80 educators gathered to experience the inaugural Maker Day: Taking Making into Schools. Since then, we have facilitated numerous Maker Days and engaged participants from the ages of 12 to 60+. Each event has helped us to refine our approach and modify our Toolkit. ~ Maker Day Toolkit v2, p. 3
