Developing Leaders, Social-Emotional Skills and Voice in Self-Organizing Teams

The complexity of a globalized world, accelerating technological advances, and rapid change also challenge educational systems around the world. At the same time around the world the call is to develop 21st century skills with a focus on career readiness, the ability for lifelong learning, and more recently also social-emotional skills (Ananiadou & Claro, 2009). To get there research and practice in education have encouraged to create more student-centered learning environments, such as project-based learning (Bell, 2010), where students can develop 21st century skills. Or schools implement social-emotional curricula that are often not embedded in the daily instruction. Even rarer are systematic approaches to develop student leadership skills, student voice and critical consciousness. Más información

Retrospective in eduScrum

Kein eduScrum ohne Retro! Aber was heißt die Retro für eduScrummer?

Jeder Sprint, also jede Lerneinheit, endet mit einer Retrospektive: mit einem auf Verbesserung ausgerichteten Rückblick auf das Zusammenspiel des Teams. Es geht dabei einerseits um die Umsetzung des Fachinhaltes und andererseits um die persönliche Entwicklung der Teammitglieder.
Wichtig ist die Reflektion über die eigene und die Teamarbeit, aber auch über die Zusammenarbeit mit dem Lehrenden und wie der Lehrende als Teil des eduScrum-Teams den Schülern helfen kann, ihre eigenen Ziele besser zu erreichen. Más información

eduScrum - the empowerment of students

In engineering education by Eduarda Pinto Ferreira & Angelo Martins

The students are not all alike. It is one of the characteristics of the human species that makes it especially adaptable to the formation of communities: people complement each other. So, if students have different characteristics, a rigid “one-size-fits-all” approach will not be successful.

It may be achievable, if you try to find a lowest common denominator, but we all know what that means: wasting most of the students' potential.

In this paper we describe the application of a Scrum based pedagogical approach to several courses of the Informatics Engineering bachelor program of ISEP (LEI-ISEP). eduScrum is a framework where much of the responsibility for the learning process management is delegated from teachers to students, both in terms of time and effort management.

A testemony of the start of a journey

This the story of a day of deep immersion in eduScrum. I flew 2000 km and drove

Willy Wijnands was our co-presenters and when he invited me to visit the Netherlands to experience eduScrum in Dutch schools. Más información

International eduScrum training

The training is hands-on (NO POWERPOINTS) in the same way students experience eduScrum. The teachers also experience the power of eduScrum and the iterative process.
We now offer the possibility to give the training in Spanish (combined with English).
Our training consists of two or three days. On the first day, I explain to experienced teachers what is eduScrum and what they can achieve.
We do this by teaching the basis of one or more eduScrum cases.
We can also let teachers experience eduScrum by having them working on their ........ Más información
