Willy Wijnands, creator & founder of eduScrum® and initial co-creator of Lightschools® and a passionate Chemistry & Science teacher since 1976. He is a true connector and therefore also co-founder of the global initiative Agile in Education. “It is not about doing agile, but about being agile”, as Willy says. He uses eduScrum and the agile mindset with students and trainers worldwide in all his classes and projects, no matter the subject.
An important basis for his thinking and acting has been created in his years of involvement in Aikido, Chi Kung and Shiatsu. He wrote and contributed to several books on agility and eduScrum (eduScrum guide, Agile and Lean Concepts for Teaching and Learning and Scrum in Actie). Within Lightschools, Willy wants to build a bridge between the educational system and market requirements. He believes that we can empower each other by collaborating. Together we create projects and products that contribute to a bright new world and develop students into lifelong learners and leaders of tomorrow.
