Abstract: 
While here is ample research on how youth are connected in online spaces and how
youth participate online via sharing and reviewing artifacts, yet less is known about how these
social connections and contributions emerge, especially in the context of physical making and
what can they contribute to learning and assessment. Thus, our symposium primarily addresses
two questions: (1) How do youth connect and learn in online maker communities? and (2) How
can we design online maker tools for learning in and out of schools? We share efforts examining
how sharing artifacts, documenting design processes, and providing feedback via online tools
can support young makers in creating physical artifacts and offer insights to new assessment
models.
