Author of 'Agile/Scrum in Schools' Freestyle projects for the classroom "We can only succeed if we recognise that education is a dynamic human system, not a mechanical one. Successful school administration is a matter of fostering a helpful climate rather than "command and control" Sir Ken Robinson. In 2010 I created 2 'freestyle' projects that later I found mapped to industry techniques called AGILE. These projects have certain aspects of industry AGILE/SCRUM techniques, enough to get pupils used to working in a free-fall chaotic environment, not to panic, to pull order from it, to find direction and structure, build products of value from nothing, co-ordinate effort and teamwork, to utilise every skill they can to achieve objectives and make end products fit for purpose within a timescale. Inside: Flowol 3 based team activity for 2-4 pupils, minimum of 2 lessons plan and presumes exposure to Flowol & flowcharts for end of unit activity.
Author of 'The Little Book of Teacher Tips': This little invaluable book covers areas of teaching and departmental management that rarely get mentioned in training like; Due Dilligence, Resources, Curriculum Timelines, Marksheets and levels. All addressed in an informal practical style, tips and techniques gained over 6 years teaching in the UK are shared. Industry management techniques [Agile/Scrum] are used to describe the validity of the tips.
