Agile2Learn project is introducing the Agile Project Based Learning into secondary education as a new enhanced educational approach to promote the development of key transversal competencies needed in the 21st century.

Project Based Learning (PBL) is a well-known approach where students apply their knowledge to solve authentic problems and produce results that matter. PBL students take advantage of digital tools to produce high quality, collaborative products. In Agile2Learn project, PBL techniques are reinforced with Agile pedagogy to achieve the above-described objective.

Agile pedagogy attempts to infuse and develop a number of transversal competences.

Some of them are:

  • continuous communication and interaction with different stakeholder,
  • team-working and self-organization,
  • motivation,
  • empathy,
  • problem solving,
  • entrepreneurship,
  • embracing change,
  • develop working prototypes,
  • critical thinking and
  • reflection

We are proposing to use Agile project management techniques as the main transformation and teaching aid, since nowadays there is a shift from traditional project management practices to what is known as “Agile project management”.
