Agile in Learning and Action: A Conversation with Tim Logan | Benjamin Freud, Ph.D.

In this episode of the Meaningful Learning podcast, I speak with Tim Logan, long-time educator and consultant and strong advocate of bringing Agile into education. Tim explains how Agile principles and values guide us to respond to change and avoid ineffective rigidity, helping to meet student and group learning needs as they arise. Agile is about collaboration and personal interactions, bringing the human element to learning through doing. In this podcast, Tim and I discuss:

  • The value of going beyond quantitative measures as means to understanding learners and their potential
  • How Agile allows us to connect action and learning by having the tools to make good decisions for our students and our schools
  • Practical ways to implement Agile in your classroom
