Reflections about using eduScrum in a doctoral program for Educational Leadership at California State University, Fresno, USA

Learning in a Changing World
In a changing world, the ability to think critically, innovate, learn independently, collaborate, and lead are crucial. The expectation is that schools and universities prepare students for changing careers and a changing world. Best practices to reach these aspirations are student-centered instruction, collaborative learning, learning communities, project based learning… And of course, during all of this, students should also learn the most current technologies.
As a university professor, I teach educational research methods and statistics. As such I do research on how to support faculty in the development of their instruction, while I am at the same time also developing my own teaching practice. In my first year I was mostly lecturing, with a lot of dialoguing, but realistically I was doing most of the talking. Then I implemented Read more

eduScrum Deutschland ist 2017 auf Roadshow
Seit Anfang 2017 steigt das Interesse an agilen Lernmethoden in Deutschland spürbar an. eduScrum ist dabei eine von vielen Möglichkeiten, den Unterricht agiler zu gestalten. Um den Nebel ein wenig zu lichten, ist eduScrum Deutschland 2017 auf Roadshow. Das heißt, wir besuchen vermehrt Schulen, Konferenzen oder Scrum-Tische, stehen Rede und Antwort für interessierte Neu-eduScrummer und üben aktiv eduScrum.

eduScrum, das ist doch nix Neues…
„Ja, nee, Scrum kenne ich schon!“ oder „Gruppenarbeit hatten wir früher mal, aber das haben wir dann wieder eingestellt.“ höre ich zum Thema eduScrum - von Scrummern, von Lehrern, von meiner Mutter.
Natürlich erfindet eduScrum das Lern-Rad nicht neu, ist bei weitem aber nicht nur die nächste Gruppenarbeit oder Scrum in der Schule aka „irgendwie Scrum in irgendwie einer Lehranstalt“. 
Ein Lehrer hat sich überlegt, wie man agile Prinzipien und Scrum für den Unterricht nutzen kann. Bei einer Anwendung von Scru Read more

eduScrum Newsletter december 2017

Published: 06/12/2017
eduScrum ist eine aktive Lehrform, bei der Lernende Aufgaben planen und nach einem festgelegten Rhythmus selbständig und selbstorganisiert erarbeiten. Diese Lernarbeit erledigen sie in Teams. Der Lernfortschritt bleibt hierbei durch das Verwenden eines eduScrum-Boards stets transparent, damit die Lernerteams sich selbst gut steuern und benötigte Hilfe vom
Lehrer bekommen können. Dabei bleibt in einer eduScrum-Aufgabe genügend Raum, um das Lernen und das erarbeitete Projekt nach den eigenen Wünschen zu gestalten. Schüler üben
Selbstverantwortung und bleiben kreativ. Gemeinsame Retrospektiven helfen den Schülern, ihre persönliche Arbeit für sich einzuordnen, neue Fähigkeiten zu entdecken und zu würdigen und die Teamarbeit zu verbessern. Read more

Transforming Education with eduScrum

In the 21st century society, a mere diploma does not suffice for our students: as change is fast, they must also be equipped with increasingly needed skills such as creativity, communication, reliability, critical thinking and teamwork capacity.


Willy Wijnands, the founder of eduScrum, believes Scrum suits the needs of the fast changing society we live in. The workforce of tomorrow has to cope with an increasingly accelerating world. Unfortunately, the current educational system is obsolete and this creates a gap between the educational offer and the market requirements. Can eduScrum become the connecting element? Read more
