Scrum4Schools

Scrum4Schools is a form of learning in which learning groups solve tasks within a fixed rhythm. The individual steps are planned completely independently by the teams. The teacher sets the learning goal and advises the students, who are responsible for developing the knowledge themselves. With Scrum4Schools the students take more responsibility for their own learning process. The result is intrinsic motivation, joy, personal growth and better results.

Why Scrum4Schools?

  • 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 finished 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 world of work.

Rethinking school

Learning with Scrum4Schools finds its way into schools. Read here about selected educational institutions that already work with it.

Study: Our survey among teachers, students and parents shows There is a lot of catching up to do in the education system and school lessons.

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 be able to assess yourself better (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 classmates’ skills. They make the experience that learning can not only give strength, but that together they can achieve better results.

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 have become part of everyday life.
