A few weeks ago lights went green for a research proposal on eduScrum. We’re doing Scrum for a about 10 years in software projects and always thought that the framework can also be used for non-software projects. I started to use the framework for making reading more fun for my 10-year old son (more about that later) and I recently discovered eduScrum.
In september we’ll start using eduScrum in half of the classes in OOSE, a set of courses on OO software design and development.
We expect to see:
- a more natural fit between 21-th century skills and ICT-skills
- a more dynamic class setting
- students having more responsibility for their own learning process
- a lot more fun for students and teachers
Recent research activities:
- organising and attending an eduScrum training
- getting in touch with other schools that use eduScrum
- starting a survey for our current students to set a baseline measurement on how they experience current courses and projects
- preparing the OOSE pilot with co-workers
We’ll keep you posted with the results of the project using this blog and twitter.
