Development of knowledge and skills & Learning outcomes

The Objectwijs teaching material can be an exciting preparation for or part of all four profiles for HAVO/VWO  Economy and society,  Culture and Society,  Nature and health,  Nature and technology. Also during project weeks it is a way of working that challenges to research and deepening.  

Object-wise teaching material brings: (what we have named) the 5 K's:

* Opportunities ; in talent development, thinking differently and differently

looking at the world (personal development), a different way of teaching,

discuss sensitive topics

* Choices: in research questions, themes and objects

* Knowledge: looks at a question from different perspectives and brings

connection between different subjects

* Frames: create maps, research questions, how-to videos and resources

frameworks for students and teachers

* Link: between knowledge and application,

alpha, beta and gamma boxes,

transcending level,


past, present and future,

inside and outside the school,

the learned and the inner world of experience

from the students






We are  We have come to the conclusion that we do not want to split Objectwise into core objectives. The categorization of Object Based Learning is in direct opposition to the goals we want to achieve, including being open to multiple perspectives and angles and cross-curricular learning.  

In doing so, we are in line with society-wide goals:  The Sustainable Development Goals.  With research questions related to objects that are related to socially sustainable issues, Objectwijs helps teachers to put the 17 SDGs into practice together with their students.

During this process, each student can (further) develop their own talents and skills. Below are several learning outcomes of Object Based Learning:
