The overall goal of the project is twofold. On the one hand, children in grade 4 to 6 will be monitored for three years to capture their development of 21st century skills (e.g., critical thinking, collaboration, digital literacy) and basic skills in language and math. The innovative educational approach adopted by Het Talent is expected to boost the development of 21st century skills without impeding the development of basic skills. During this three-year period, teachers at Het Talent will receive training and coaching in research skills, which should eventually enable them to investigate and improve their own teaching practices.
