The "Why" of eduScrum
With eduScrum students work together in an energetic, targeted, effective and efficient way.
With eduScrum, students are more motivated when they work together. They work autonomously within plain frameworks and the responsibility they get form this makes them thrive. Their teachers enjoy this as well.
With eduScrum, cooperating teams will function optimally. Students enjoy this and will turn into increasingly better team players who are valued for their qualities.
With eduScrum, every student knows how and why they must do something. They know the importance for themselves and for the team. Because of this, students will work harder and get better results.
The collaborative nature of eduScrum leads to personal development, intrinsic motivation extrinsic motivation, based on four building blocks: trust, communication, commitment and responsibility. Collaboration requires mutual trust between learners. In addition, communication is very important, so that they learn to be themselves and dare to say what they think. These two building blocks create commitment within the team, which in turn leads to accountability. The four building blocks relate not only to the team as a whole, but also to individual students. By doing so, eduScrum ensures that students get the best out of themselves and their team. eduScrum does not make it “easy” for students. We want to get the best out of students with eduScrum.
How can we prepare students for jobs that have not yet been created, for societal challenges that we cannot yet imagine, and for using technologies that have not yet been invented?
How can we equip them to thrive in an interconnected world where they must understand and appreciate different perspectives and worldviews, interact respectfully with others, and take responsible action for sustainability and collective well-being?
