Home-Scruming: A workshop on how to apply Scrum to Homeschooling

The session today focuses on how to adapt Scrum's agile model of project management to your homeschooling lifestyle. Scrum is a common form of project management where regular stand-up meetings take place and each person is held responsible for their own tasks. Each assignment is reviewed for completion and a reflective period is conducted to answer any concerns. This collaborative and self-reliant task completion approach benefits educators and students.
