Abstract: In this paper, we explore how standards-based Making activities offer opportunities for teachers to address interdisciplinary concepts and encourage students to tinker, collaborate, create, and design. This qualitative study draws on results from a two-year, NSF-funded research project that involved the integration of standards-based Mobile Maker Kits into 15 elementary schools within a suburban-rural Southern school district. Specifically, we examine teachers’ goals for using Mobile Maker Kits, as well as how the hook, brainstorm, prototype, share, synthesize framework supported them in integrating Making into their existing standards and curricula.
