Scrum in Schools

We live nowadays in a fast changing world. As a consequence, attained knowledge outdates fast. Many of the jobs that exist today, will no longer exist tomorrow. And tomorrow will bring new jobs that we cannot even imagine today.

It is therefore eminent that our education system should adapt. Next to the traditional subjects, schools should pay more attention in developing future-based competencies and character qualities, such as creativity, collaboration, curiosity and more.


‘Scrum in the classroom’ provides a solution for this. Nils has done an intervention study and wrote a thesis to scientifically support this claim. Learn about how Scrum can be applied in the classroom. Learn why teachers never want to go back to their old way of teaching; learn about how students enjoy obtaining control over their own way of learning.
