I’m a partner and the father of a 1,5 year old girl. In my free time I’m a licensed eduScrum trainer and an English and Physics teacher on a primary school in Trutnov. I use eduScrum in my lessons as a framework to support students in the development of their 21st century skills like collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking. It also gives me the opportunity to bring a more agile mindset into education. I’m responsible for the implementation of eduScrum in the Czech Republic. Since the summer of 2019 I give certified trainings to teachers and eduScrum is accredited by the Czech ministry of education. I’m originally from the Netherlands but since summer 2017 I’m living in Trutnov.
I would like to share my story about how eduScrum changed my life as a teacher and how it can help to improve the way we educate our children in the 21st century. With eduScrum, the students own their own learning process, resulting in intrinsic motivation, fun, better results and most important, personal growth. Key words to this succes: Ownership and Trust. I’m my presentation I will present a case study of one real example of the use and success of eduScrum in my classroom.
