The why behind our Object Based Learning programs 

Why we do what we do:

We are now in a transition phase between two eras. New forms of education are being sought and created, but there is also a lot of fragmentation and fragmentation in education. Makers of Tomorrow want Object Based Learning  provide a tool to connect and  coherent educational provision.  

 

We, as Makers of Tomorrow, think it's a misconception to think that we have to face the future. We do not undergo it, but make it possible for a new era to come. In it are  'connection' and 'coherence' are crucial words that need to be translated into the education of the future.

Do not work in the future,  but future-oriented.

Teachers and students play a  major role in.

Pupils learn not only in school, but also outside of it. Knowledge is mainly applied and used outside the school and contributes to the degree and manner of  perception and experiences. 

It is important that the knowledge that students now receive is fragmented into subjects is presented differently. Object Based Learning  let students discover for themselves out of curiosity and find answers to questions. In addition, students learn that a problem can be viewed and answered from multiple perspectives. 

Object Based Learning  wear  with this  also on  the personal development of the students and their ability to be open to other possibilities, opinions and ways of looking at things.  

Teachers can take their responsibility in this and  help students to understand the world around them. We take objects as a starting point for this, because every object has a story and thus arouses curiosity and challenges to research and discovery.  

We want  allow both the teacher and the students to achieve meaningful interaction, whereby autonomy and dialogue with each other and the world around them lead to a greater degree of involvement. Our goal is to enrich the lives of students and teachers, to broaden their view, in the person themselves, to each other & to the world around them.  

What we do: 

We build bridges, connect and bring cohesion to culture and education. Our programs connect students of different educational levels, humanities, science and social sciences teachers, knowledge and practice, secondary education and further education, school with art and culture & past, present and future.  

How  we do that: 

We  create cohesion  in education where we take objects as a starting point.

We connect separate parts / experiences with each other  into 1 unique whole.  

Together with  objects  to dawn  we  pupils  and  teachers  from  to  from  various  perspectives each other's thoughts and ideas and the  world  to them  go to  (re)discover. 

Makers of Tomorrow sets the following main goals for Object Based Learning:

1) Provide a tool to create a coherent educational offer 

  • Cross-curricular skills 

  • Interdisciplinary issues/research questions 

  • Critical and creative thinking 

  • Making connections by using Objects as binding agents 

  • Connection to the Sustainable Development Goals

2) Making academic research skills visible and tangible as part of 21st century skills, 

for students and teachers, inside and outside the school  ​

  • The use of object research in various fields 

  • Supporting education in visual language (film and video) 

  • Forms of elaboration such as debating and making education  

3) Shaping citizenship and creating space for each other and each other's ideas

  • Objects as a tool to approach sensitive subjects from different perspectives

  • Creating attention for inclusiveness at school by teaching students to associate with (the stories behind) objects and people in a broader context

4) Develop a continuous learning path in which PO, VO and HO can connect with each other in research skills 

by objects. 

  • Research skills consist of analyzing, using knowledge, consulting sources, critical thinking and critical questions  

     learn to argue and argue. 

  • Object Based Learning is intended to make research in the school challenging, visible and tangible for students and teachers. With objects, the abstract concept of 'research' can be made visually visible and recognized in new situations, in preparation from primary to secondary education and from secondary education to further education. 

  • Objects can be used at any level and are therefore ideally suited to develop research skills

     to be developed in a continuous learning path.
