We agree that learning to learn is the goal. But we struggle to develop systems that consistently promote self-regulation, collaboration, a growth mindset, and the ability to adapt as you go.

Willy Wijnands, a chemistry teacher, has created one very compelling path: eduScrum.

eduScrum and the offshoots of eduScrum are spread across the Netherlands. The Scrum Alliance of Denver, Colorado is supporting additional efforts to introduce the principles of scrum to schools, for example John Miller of Agile Classrooms (California) and Bill Tihen and Paul Magnuson of EDgility at LAS here in Switzerland.

What is Scrum?

Scrum is a way of getting work done, well. It is a mindset that develops individuals who work well in teams, who know the importance of personal relationships, who can deal with complexity, and who learn spirally through iterations. It got its start in the world of software programming but is now found in many companies (e.g. Zalando, Microsoft, IBM) and organizations, including some schools. In this two-and-a-half minute video, the co-founder of Scrum, Jeff Sutherland, speaks about eduScrum.

Participants do not have to adopt eduScrum to benefit from the training. It’s about a mindset, about helping our students be their own best teachers, starting now.
