What can you comment about Agile-Based Learning?
Network:10137



Face-to-face interaction, meaningful learning, self-organizing teams, and incremental and/or iterative learning that exploit the imagination are all agile principles that can change the mindset in the classroom and advance educational goals (Briggs, 2014).

This a very interesting topic, focused on change in the classroom mindset, I think this is the only way to change or to add to our current paradigm, the change or addition is currently too slow. We are still focused on the traditional way.

The Twelve Principles of Agile Schools

The characteristics of these schools are as follows:
1.Their highest priority is to satisfy the needs of students and their families through the early and continuous delivery of meaningful learning.
2.They welcome changing requirements, even late in a learning cycle, and harness change for the benefit of students and their families.
3.They deliver meaningful learning frequently, from a couple of days to a couple of weeks, with a preference to the shorter timescale.
4.School and family team members work together daily to create learning opportunities for all participants.
5.They build projects around motivated individuals, give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.
6.They recognize that the most efficient and effective method of conveying information to and within a team is a face-to-face conversation.
7.Meaningful learning is their primary measure of progress.
8.Their processes promote sustainability. Educators, students, and families should be able to maintain a constant pace indefinitely.
9.They believe that continuous attention to technical excellence and good design enhances adaptability.
10.Simplicity–the art of maximizing the amount of work done–is essential.
11.The best ideas and initiatives emerge from self-organizing teams.
12.At regular intervals, teams reflect on how to become more effective, then tune and adjust their behavior accordingly.

I'd agree that this a challenge in the university or college space, but most successful private training organizations are incorporating non-traditional learning methods into their curriculums. For the traditional learning providers, it will be a case of evolve or become obsolete with pressures from online competitors like Udemy, Coursera, Khan Academy and so on.

As an example, the foundational agile course I teach leverages a number of agile principles including frequent feedback, minimally sufficient documentation, extensive discussion, and tackling of challenging/high risk areas early.
