On Agile Education in Practice: A Conversation with Paul Magnuson | Tim Logan

Paul Magnuson attributes his progressive views on education to over 20 years of experience working in summer camps. He’s done with command and control models that tend to favor conformity and compliance over self-regulation, whether it be for students or teachers. Paul leads educational research at Leysin American School and is a frequent blogger for the international school organizations, The International Educator and ECIS. Opportunities for workshops in innovative teaching and learning can be found at peakchallenges.ch.

In our conversation, Paul draws on inspiration from eduScrumAgora schools and we talk about NEASC’s ACE Learning accreditation protocol.
