Providing a framework for maker education activities helps ensure that their use is intentional; that meaningful learning is extracted from these experiences. The educator, using such a framework, becomes proactive in framing or frontloading maker experiences and in debriefing or processing them to increase the chances that learning occurs. Framing or frontloading is making clear the purpose of an activity prior to actually doing it; it helps to set purpose and intention for the activity. Reflecting on the maker activities after their completion can done through a variety of methods: talking, writing, sketchnoting, and using technology such as Web 2.0 tools and social media.
