Today’s teachers have a big responsibility: they must prepare their students for success in college and in the job market.
We believe that agile and entrepreneur training is the key to helping today’s youth master self-directed innovation and project-based learning, opening doors to a career in technology, business, entrepreneurship, and more – and so we founded GoAgileEdu to help educators learn the skills required for agile thinking.
What We Do
GoAgileEdu offers agile coaching and agile certification courses for professionals in the education sector. These training classes help teachers, principals, and other educators understand agile methodology, so they can implement it into their classrooms.
Agile helps students learn to master the “four Cs,” – collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication – all of which are essential skills for a successful career. Our courses are STEAM-based programs that emphasize self-directed, project-based learning.
With these courses, teachers can:
- Provide guidance to students so they can develop a resume and interviewing skills
- Demonstrate leadership and communications skills
- Collaborate with team members to develop a self-organized project
- Excel in a project-based environment
- Grasp Agile and technology concepts
- Increase personal confidence to succeed
- Leverage new skills that are transferable to community and work activities
- Claim professional development credits (PDUs or SEUs)
What is Agile?
Agile was originally developed in the tech sector, so software development teams could complete projects more quickly and creatively. However, this methodology utilized skills that are widely applicable across a variety of industries.
Agile thinking helps individuals work effectively, collaborate with their fellow teammates, and innovate for create better projects that deliver value to their organizations. Through agile training, workers can collaborate better with one another, leading to more creative projects, more engaged workers, and more enjoyable work overall.
