Over the last two decades, Agile values and management techniques have spread from software development throughout the business world. What makes Agile effective? And how can we apply these principles in education to promote 21st-century skills? This session will explore a brief history of Agile practices before getting into the down n’ dirty of trying it out in the classroom. While the majority of time will be spent iterating scrum boards for project-based learning, we will also consider how to integrate sprints, squads, and stand-ups to create viable learning rhythms and facilitate classroom flow.

Session Objectives:

Learn about the tenets and history of Agile as it applies to business & education.
Experiment with various scrum board templates to facilitate student autonomy and collaboration skills.
