Maker learning and school leadership

The future sustainability of maker learning programs in K-12 depends on administrators getting involved and making systemic changes to schools. This panel discussion features school and district leaders who are integrating maker learning and using it as a means to build community, change instructional practice, and redesign school. Administrators share their struggles and successes, and the ways that a sense of "maker empowerment" has affected the way they approach their work.
