Agile Learning


Agile Learning
Paul and his colleagues at Leysin American School and around the world have been pulling agile into education since 2015.

Agile is perhaps best know in the software development world, where Scrum and Kanban are commonly used processes - and mindsets - for organizing people and projects. The application to education has recently been formalized by Scrum Alliance, the world's largest not-for-profit company supporting agile in business and schools.

We have formulated our conceptualization of agile for education in the ten practices of EDgility. Leading with a commitment to student agency, we train in the creation of an agile mindset to support self-regulation, quality feedback, short iterative work, and a joy of discovery that treats mistakes as positive steps forward.
