Session Summary:

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.

Session Abstract:

eduScrum is an active education process, built on trust, freedom and space. An exploratory journey as students learn and co-create our culture and values. In teams they plan their own activities and keep track of what the progress is. They become owners of their own learning process. The effect is that students are more engaged, more productive, more responsible, self-organized and their results are better. They discover who they are and what their abilities are.

It is such a wonderful experience to see them developing themselves! So, by giving the students the trust and freedom to run their own class and learning process they become beautiful people.

Learning Objectives:

Arno Delhij and Willy Wijnands, the founder of eduScrum, believe Scrum suits the needs of the fast changing society we live in. The workforce of tomorrow has to cope with 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 Unfortunately, the current educational system is obsolete and this creates a gap between the educational offer and the market requirements.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?

During this session Willy and Arno will draw a parallel between Scrum, Education and Scrum beyond IT. The starting principles are the autonomy and authenticity of people. Willy and Arno believe that children have to take responsibility for their own learning paths and work together independently.
