Augmented Agile teamwork for hybrid learning at schools. Engaging students in online teaching using the combined power of agile rituals and web/XR technology.
AgileXR is a 2-year Erasmus+ project that harnesses the potential of agile rituals and web/XR (Extended Reality) technology to revolutionize online learning and instruction. This project aims to engage teachers and students from upper secondary schools in Europe, focusing on leveraging digital technologies to create novel educational experiences in hybrid settings.
The AgileXR project seeks to revolutionize education by leveraging agile methodologies and XR technology, enhancing collaborative learning experiences for teachers and students in both on-campus and distance settings. By addressing challenges associated with distance learning and prioritizing inclusivity, the project aims to empower educators and students alike while fostering a more resilient and adaptive educational ecosystem.
