For a Maker project to be a rewarding experience for all, both the teacher and students will likely need to develop new practices. We recognize 8 essential practices for effective project facilitation, and we've compiled a variety of facilitation moves to support these practices:
1. Include joy, fun, and non-traditional experiences in the project!
2. Hear all voices
3. Have your resources ready
4. Foster collaboration
5. Foster self-direction
6. Keep the project work flowing smoothly in the classroom
7. Keep all students involved, on-task, and on-track 8. Model an iterative learning process: Try, Test, Reflect, Improve, Try again
