The Maker movement and Do-It-Yourself (DIY) culture celebrates innovation, creativity, and community engagement centered on hands-on creation. Parents, teachers, and Makers from diverse walks of life embrace hands-on learning and creativity, but well-grounded and shared understanding of its educational value is still lacking. In order for DIY and Maker culture to make a real difference for education, we need well-formulated research which speaks directly to educational policy and practice.

Make-to-Learn is a thematic initiative of the Digital Media and Learning Hub at the University of California, Irvine and is supported by the MacArthur Foundation. Kylie Peppler and the Creativity Labs at Indiana University, Bloomington are leading this effort.
