Kanbanchi for Project-Based Learning


#1

Well, who knew?!? Kanbanchi, which several District 287 users have been using together with Scrum for project management, has an education version geared specifically to educators and students and Project-Based Learning.

Sweet! I’m signing up right now. Squirrel!

This pleases me.

Looking a little closer, this would be (will be!) a great way to set up kanbans with students for achieving their IEP goals and objectives.


#5

I’ve started using the regular Kanbanchi for a project I’m working on, but haven’t played around with this yet. I’m curious how it might be different from regular Kanbanchi.


#6

Awesome!! I have been using Trello, but am anxious to try this out (or even import my Trello boards). Thanks for sharing!


#7

In looking at this, is there any difference between the regular Kanbanchi I’ve been using and the Kanbanchi Education for PBL @MikeSmart linked to?

I think this is a great tool and now have 5 different Kanbans. Now if I only had more time to get all these tasks done!

Please share if you decide to use Kanbans of any form in your classrooms to manage student tasks! I would love to hear about it.

Trello specific question:
I have a set of backlog cards in a list. I have a list for the things going in the sprint, then a doing & a done. Is there a way to collapse or hide the backlog list to keep it from distracting/stressing the team members? (But still keep the backlog associated with the board?)

(Inspired by my Scrum training at SEC yesterday! I am using trello so I can work it on my phone. )

Hi Leslie. The best way to do this in Trello, which isn’t ideal I don’t think, is to keep your big list of backlog items on a separate board. It’d be great if you could hide or collapse a list but I don’t think you can. However, you can easily send/share cards from one board to another.

The other solution I came up with - insert a bunch of spacer (empty) lists and then move “backlog” to the far right. That way they are mostly out of view off the screen but pretty easy to grab if a sprint has ended.

There are a lot of plugins for Trello. One of them is this one, called Trello Collapse Lists. No reviews yet but 30 users.

You go first? :smile:

Oh, wait, this one might be better. 4 stars on 9 reviews.
