Agile learning is a collection of values and principles that guides a person through their learning process.

Agile4Collaboration is a project funded under the Erasmus+ Programme of the EU that aims to contribute in a collaborative and agile way to the development of Agile Learning in Europe as a learning method.

 

 

With our project Agile4Collaboration we would like to:

 

  • Offer European teachers the opportunity to learn about and use agile methods
  • Introduce Agile methods in more European schools, both traditional and schools with alternative pedagogies
  • Create a strong and well-connected community for Agile learning.

In Agile 4 Collaboration we believe in and act on a series of core educational principles, including:

Learning is natural and happens all the time.

People learn best by making their own decisions.
Children are people; people learn more from their culture and environment than from the content they are taught.
Accomplishment is achieved through cycles of intention, creation, reflection and sharing.

Mission

Agile4Collaboration aims to contribute in a collaborative, agile way, to the development of Agile Learning in Europe as a learning method. That is closer to the natural way of learning of people, and that is highly beneficial for learners who are formed in an interactive, collaborative and self-directed way.

Outputs

As part of the project, which will run until 2024, we will produce various content:

 

A theoretical handbook on Agile Learning that presents basic information on the genesis and principles of the pedagogy

 

A collection of tools for Agile Learning – with practical working material for the school context

A digital tool to promote peer-to-peer agile learning and facilitate communication within the community

An open digital professional development offering OER (Open Educational Resource): a tool for self-paced professional development of teachers on the philosophy, methods and tools of Agile Learning.
