Scrum4Schools is a form of learning in which learning teams solve tasks within a fixed rhythm. The individual steps are planned completely independently by the teams. The teacher defines the learning objective and advises the students, who then work out the knowledge themselves. With Scrum4Schools the students take more responsibility for their learning process. The result is intrinsic motivation, joy, personal growth and better results.
- Motivating: What would happen if students started class before the bell rang? What would happen if they volunteered to do homework?
- Effective: What would happen if teachers were done with the prescribed curriculum six weeks before the end of the school year and had time to address the individual challenges of their students?
- Long-term: Students learn to organize themselves – a decisive advantage in the working world.
What are the goals of Scrum4Schools?
Learning as a self-chosen challenge is a key element of Scrum4Schools. The two most important goals are to learn more effectively and to better assess oneself (who am I, what can I do?).
At the same time, students learn to work in a team and to appreciate the value of their peers’ skills. They experience that learning can not only give them strength, but also that they can achieve better results together.
Wanting to achieve something together with others, getting involved and taking responsibility for one’s own learning process is also an important skill for the working world, where agile working methods are now part of everyday life.
