How can we design and provide equitable maker learning experiences so that all learners can engage in powerful learning?

In this session, participants will use the Digital Promise Maker Learning Leadership Framework to take stock of current offerings and explore the available tools and resources to grow opportunities for meaningful making, develop an understanding of how to create inclusive maker learning experiences, and begin planning for how to provide and sustain these opportunities are accessible to all.
