Projects for real (14 of 15): Agile in education

monitor-kanban

Here you can download and read a very interesting article written by researchers from Swtzerland and Italy. It is a metastudy of Agile methodologies in education and comprises a chapter from a book called Agile and Lean Concepts for Teaching and Learning – now this is something I want to get my hands on!

The article is much more than a meta-review: it describes the values , tools and different frameworks within  Agile, so if you’d like to know more about Kanban, Scrum, XP  and other cool techie terms, it’s a great start. There are also useful charts comparing Agile in software development and in education, and I’ve realised that there’s a lot more to experiment with.

My favourite idea from the article so far is using Scrum for organising the learning process: the teacher becomes the product owner, the student team(s) have their scrum master and they use the methodology to organise and improve their own learning process. There’s a lot more there, so do check it out.
