Braintrust’s own, John Miller was interviewed by InfoQ this week about his ongoing involvement in a project called Agile Schools.
Through this project, John is working to teach Scrum to high school students. The project is focused on how schools can use Scrum to help teams of students to learn more effectively and develop themselves in an enjoyable way. The self-organized student teams work in sprints to learn subjects and evolve the learning process. Results from the agile way of working are improved quality of education, higher grades and motivated students. The student teams and teachers used retrospectives to evaluate the learning processes, and improve the way that Scrum can be used for teaching.
