Maker Learning Leadership Framework (Digital Promise)

Our partners at Digital Promise are proud to present the Maker Learning Leadership Framework, a toolkit for education leaders as they work towards ensuring all students have opportunities to make.

The Framework offers resources, strategies, and models to help school and district leaders establish their vision, build their culture, and make their program.

The Framework was created through a year-long collaborative process with school districts from around the country. Each element is grounded in the work of pioneering educators and researchers, and has been vetted by a cohort of teachers and administrators from six school districts who have used tools from the Framework in crafting their own programs.

Looking for a place to start? Check out some of these tools inside the Framework:

Superintendents: Draw inspiration from other schools to help you chart the right course for your district.

Principals: Use this worksheet to help envision culturally-relevant maker learning in your school.

Tech directors: Use the scatterplot to help you identify appropriate tools as your program evolves over time.

Instructional coaches: Support teachers with instructional guides and conversation starters.
