Creating a AGILE Africa

It is becoming a necessity for learning to be more adaptive, connected, and interdependent in this fast-changing and unpredictable world.  Agile thinking has proven to be the secret behind successful technology and business companies, but the education systems have remained unchanged for many decades. Research shows that the Agile mindset could enable a more engaging and relevant learning culture and experience for students, and educators alike.  Africa Agility is in partnership with Boston University agile innovation Lab and L-eaf Org.

Teachers around the world are beginning to use Agile practices to create a culture of learning for greater educational achievement, and the educational systems in Africa can also respond to this constantly changing landscape with agility.

The advent of online education is a typical Agile innovation borne out of necessity for people to continue learning regardless of the challenges posed by the pandemic.

At Africa Agility, our aim to use Lean Agile practices, and the culture they inspire, to change learning culture at all levels of our education systems.

The aim is to empower the educators with new approach to make learning more relevant and rewarding and teach our future generations of leaders to think creatively and be more adaptive.
