Jonathan's Pedagogy

We have worked with teaching in different parts of the world and observed, studied and immersed ourselves in different ways of teaching. The way of teaching in Singapore has particularly appealed to us.

They have the best results in the world according to PISA and according to TIMSS!

The most fascinating  is that they not only have the best results in the world, but also at advanced levels. 


They have also the most happy children of the world! 


It is not common that you can combine the best results at advanced level and the most satisfied children. Our ambition is to provide tangible methods and all the tools and knowledge that you need and that lead to the same or better results. That's why we created this course!


PISA also made a comparison of how the development looks like in the labor market in the world and how we should relate to this for the way we teach in our schools.

There are reports that indicate that around 12% of the existing occupations will disappear. However, about 13% new types of occupations will appear. 

75% of our existing jobs and professions will change. 


We must be able to apply our knowledge to completely new situations, to be able to face the new normal in the future.


PISA has also reached another conclusion that is very important. Our abilities and skills, which we should equip our children with, should make them advanced problem solvers.


We often hear this mentioned in Singapore: "Singapore has only one resource, people! We will therefore invest in our citizens to make them the best in the world!”


That's why they invested to create da perfect education for primary schools.

We also look at the four most important capabilities for the future:


1. Communication

2. Collaboration / Cooperation

3. Critical thinking

4. Creative thinking

Today there are many new experimental ideas and methods, but for us it was important that our course rests on scientific foundations.


Therefore, we chose to immerse ourselves in the most relevant and interesting theories on which our course is now based.


The researchers we chose to pay attention to are: 

·    Lev Vygotsky

·    Jean Piaget

·    Jerome Bruner

·    George Polya

·    Zoltan Dienes

·    Richard Skemp


In the course we will examine what the theories are about and how they have been adapted to the way we should teach in our classrooms.

The course has 6 different steps, 3 general steps about pedagogy and 3 steps about mathematics:

1. The introduction to pedagogy

2. The research behind the pedagogy

3. Lesson structure and 4C


The mathematics

The following steps will focus on the math:

4. Solving problems with exercises

5. Visualization models with exercises

6. Heuristics' problem-solving strategies with exercises

Now is the time to reveal the purpose of the name of the course.


Who is Jonathan?

We have chosen to call this course Jonathan's pedagogy because the way we teach and learn is very similar to what Seagull Jonathan Livingston had to do in the book written by Richard Bach. 


It is about the seagull Jonathan who wanted to master the art of flying, not like a seagull but like the eagles.

A seagull is not supposed to be able to fly like the eagles. They should mostly be on the ground and fly at lower altitudes. Therefore, no one could or would teach him to fly. He had to figure it out for himself and come to his own conclusions and insights by exploring and trying again and again.

We will tell you much more about this story in the course. The message from the book is clear. We ourselves should explore and dare to try ourselves to be successful problem solvers. 

Just like Jonathan:




We teachers and our students become a little more like:



The master supports and guides. The apprentice explores, experiments and concludes.


You have now reached the end of this short free introduction. What you have learned is further developed in the first step of the course. 


You can already take part in it.


From July 1, you can then choose the steps you are most interested in or buy all steps.
