Education for a New ideas from the Netherlands

In 2012, PISA ranked the education system in the Netherlands as the 10th best in the world. Nonetheless, some education entrepreneurs like Maurice De Hond are pushing for the introduction of pioneering teaching methods to better equip students with 21st-century skills. Together with a group of volunteers, he set up Foundation O4NT, or “Education For a New Era”, which is behind the Steve Jobs” schools in the Netherlands. Personalized learning is at the heart of these schools. Children do not follow fixed timetables nor they attend typical school lessons. They work at their own pace, using tablets and taking charge of their own learning process with the help of educational applications. (source: WISE)
