Let's do this is a book on the art of school right.
Aiming to create food for thought wrapped in eye candy, we created an artbook containing more than 300 pictures showcasing 6 innovative schools from all over the world.
For the book, I researched the schools' methods and their scientific proof.
Het Onderwijsvragenboek is a Dutch book created by Operation Education.
The book aims to question all elements of education we perceive as normal, such as subjects, standardized test, vacations and much more. It doesn't stop at questioning however. For each question history, advantages, disadvantages and alternatives are explored.
I contributed in research and editing.

De Lanteerne is a primary Jena Plan school.

Collaborating with project office Thomas en Charles I researched the phenomenon Life Skills.
We defined Life Skills as the skills, knowledge, insight and attitude you need in order to take charge over your own life.
We collected these Life Skills by asking people questions like: what would you have wanted to learn in school?
