Agile & Scrum Curriculum Collaborative

Thank you so much for deciding to be a part of this collaborative project! Blueprint's mission is to inspire students to make better choices and be champions of their own learning; we passionately believe that Agile and Scrum align perfectly with our mission. You have a unique and exciting opportunity to impact students' lives in a new and innovative way. Here's a refresher of the directions followed by the general template. Please make sure that you reach out with any ideas and/or suggestions as well!

  • Record a 5-15 minute Scrum/Agile talk, presentation, workshop, virtual field trip etc. The subject of your lesson is your choice. It should highlight the concepts, values, or professional experiences you associate with Scrum or Agile.
  • The video MUST include a “DO” component that would prompt the students to take action or apply the learnings from your presentation.  The “Do” portion could be an activity, collaborative project, webquest, or product that they must create. We are not looking for professional quality videos here. This is iteration one. We want “real” passion and creativity.

Here is a general guideline:

  1. Establish what you want the students to know by the end of your video and activity (The Why?) Help them to understand why what you are teaching them is relevant and applicable to their lives!
  2. Record your video. If you don't want to record a personal video, feel free to create a video presentation!
  3. Check out these websites! You could use any of these ideas to organize your instruction and/or the "DO" portion of your lesson!
