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
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
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.
