By Arno Delhij & Ward Bergmans
The full description from the XP Days website http://www.xpdays.net/Xpday2014/XPDays/ProgramFriday.html#session_259 :
Who remembers what it was like at High School? And why learning wasn’t so much fun at all? And you know why? Because the teacher told you what to do and how to do it, no arguing allowed!
Who had ever thought that education would learn from the IT guys, and what lessons can be learned from Scrum by teachers? If anyone in particular can explain how and why Scrum in education works than it is the students themselves.
After this interactive session you will have gained first hand insight from the students how eduScrum evolved, better understand why and how it works and beyond doubt will never look the same at education.
Goal of the session: Create a sense of curiosity and broaden the knowledge of how to apply Scrum in education
Since a few years Scrum is used to educate students (teens and adults), this has evolved to the eduScrum framework.
With eduScrum students work together in an energetic, targeted, effective and efficient way.
With eduScrum students are stimulated to develop into a valuable member of a team.
eduScrum ascertains a mind-set that aims for constant improvement.
eduScrum is a framework for a cocreative process and supporting.
This new way of education has lead to remarkable results but most of all motivated students that take ownership of their learning process. Once you have seen this live, you’re overwhelmed and understand why this approach has such a potential. Needles to say that this boosted our interest and we decided to devote a fair amount of time and energy to support this fantastic and radical innovation in education.
So, together with the help of some special friends, we’ve created a session about eduScrum that will bring you all the secrets you want to know!
In the true spirit of the eXPerience Days we’ve arranged a group of high school students and teachers to share their experiences with you!
