2. Develop an Idea
When you first sit down to plan your make cycle, you want to be in search of a big, rough idea. The support you’ll receive in a coaching meeting will help you sharpen this idea and plan strategically to engage a large community online.
To begin, you might think through the following prompts:
“What if everyone (made) ______?”
Or, “What might we make if we were all thinking about _____?”
In past years, make cycles grew out of this type of questioning.
What if everyone made maps?
What if everyone made toys (out of toys)?
What might we make if we were all thinking about Connected Learning credos? What might we make if we were all thinking about introducing ourselves?
