=== The Canon of the Netherlands app ===
Do you ever have trouble with Dutch history?
Dolmens, Charlemagne, King William I, the World Wars…
Everything becomes clearer with the Canon van Nederland app. Discover the Canon of the Netherlands at school and at home on your tablet. All you need is an internet connection.
Our app is intended for all those interested in Dutch culture and history, and in particular for students and teachers from group 5 up to and including secondary education. With the Canon you come face to face with the history of the Netherlands!
The Canon of the Netherlands consists of fifty cleverly chosen 'windows' that together show the story of the Netherlands. In 2020, the Canon has been completely renewed based on new developments and insights: ten windows have been replaced, and the texts of all windows have been revised. The windows are now also connected via seven thematic main lines. This release of the Canon of the Netherlands app offers full support for the recently updated Canon of the Netherlands (2020).
Open a window and you will get a view of one of the people, objects or events that have contributed to the Netherlands in which we now live. For each window you can choose information at a level from group 5 up to and including secondary education.
View the many photos and videos, follow the links to websites and books and make fun assignments together with classmates or friends.
=== Information for students ===
Spin the assignment wheel and discover which fun assignments you can do alone or with a group.
Choose a window plate to take an interactive journey through the captivating details of a canon subject.
You can use the Canon van Nederland app in class - if the teacher approves of course ;-) - but the app also offers you a lot of material that you can use for a paper or presentation.
=== Information for teachers ===
The app is one of the first educational apps that fully matches the core objectives of education. The app can be used from group 5 up to and including secondary education. The use of language and the available materials such as films and assignments are adapted to the selected target group.
The Canon of the Netherlands was developed as a didactic concept by the Dutch Canon Development Committee (2005-2007). The Canon of the Netherlands is intended for all those interested in Dutch culture and history, and in particular for students and teachers from group 5 up to and including secondary education. In 2006 the first version of the Canon was presented and housed at the entoen.nu foundation. In 2020, the Canon of the Netherlands was thoroughly recalibrated by the Kennedy Committee. The Canon of the Netherlands app provides support for the new Canon of the Netherlands.
