  • 1. Manifesto The world is changing ever faster, typically under the influence of the digital revolution. From a very early age child come into contact wit hit. We are convinced that the invention of the iPad Marks a new fase in the interaction between child and the virtual World. Intuitively even very young children manage this device. By playing they acquire skills that are important for their future in the 21st century. For education this creates new challenges as well as new opportunities. The challenges lie in the developments that take place outside and use them in the school, strengthening and complementing them. Remaining relevant in preparing for this new era. The opportunities lie in shaping the school much more to fit the individual talents and capabilities of the child, using the new Technologies, with the same or less cost. At the same time taking care that the school, teachers, students and others involved are better equipped for the further developments in the future. In order to be able te meet these challenges and make the most of the opportunities, we wish to start a new school. Together with teachers and parents with the same conviction we intend to found schools on the basis of a new direction: “Onderwijs voor een nieuwe tijd” (Education for a new time), o4nt.nl. The four key elements of our approach are: Every talent is recognized The education starts from the talents of the individual student and is organized to develop them to the utmost, and to reinforce their development through co-operation. Combining physical (school building) and virtual (internet) The school consists of a physical component ( the building) and a virtual component. This school is open all year round. The buil-ding, without classrooms, is open from 8:30 am to 6:30 pm, 50 weeks a years, and the virtual component is available at all times and everywhere. All students (even the youngest) will have an iPad at their disposal. They can connect to the virtual part of the school and use the huge amount of educational apps. Learning can take place always and everywhere. Learning is no loner synonymous with being present in the physical building. Learning is synonymous witha learning attitudewhich can be applied anywhere. Presence and vacation involves an important individual component with due consideration to the educational goals. 1 2 1/3 manifesto o4nt.nl
  • 2. 21st century skills The education starts from the talents of the individual student and is organized to develop them to the utmost, and to reinforce their development through co-operation. Community Especially because a considerable part of learning takes place outside the building, the role of parents is of great importance. School and environment (parents, companies, institutions and others)are connected via the community and they enhance the quality of the education. Therefore, parents are active partners in the educational process and play an indispensable role in the organization, the execution and the evaluation of the education. Experiences are widely shared and the environmentis heartily invited to contribute to the education. We realize that various elements of our approach also take placein other types of schools. And also that technology enters the schools more and more. However, we think that a significant part of our innovations can only take place within a completely new school which is set up in a way that allows rapid response to changes in the future. The exeriences of this new school can then – if desired- be used by existing schools in their processes of change. We call parents of children between 2 and 6 years of age to indicate if the would consider enrolling their child if such a school is established in their neighbourhood. We also invite teachers and other professionals who wish to be involved in the foundation and launch of this school to contact us. In our extensive document the background and organization is further developed. You can register in o4nt.nl on our website. 3 4 2/3 manifesto o4nt.nl manifest  o4nt.nl manifest  o4nt.nl
