Profile

Jan Boom (1956) studied Philosophy and Psychology at the Universiteit van Amsterdam. His PhD (1993) was prepared at the Department of Philosophy and History of Education in Nijmegen as part of the program “Philosophy of Development”. He works at the Department of Developmental Psychology at the Universiteit Utrecht since.

His long time interest has been in trying to understand development with a focus on cognitive (Piaget) and moral (Kohlberg) development. Originally his research was focused on the conceptual level, more recently the focus has been broadened to include the methodological and statistical level.

Recent projects include (involvement in) Curious Minds; Intervention models as interrupted time-series, Overlapping waves model of Development, Youth and Identity, etc.  He is consultant for numerous Ph.D. and Postdoc projects. He is Board member of the Jean Piaget Society (JPS); Board member of the Dutch Developmental Psychology Society (VNOP), and chair of Kuhmerker Dissertation price committee of the Association of Moral Education (AME).

Project:
Beyond flatland in primary school mathematics education
01.07.2015 to 30.06.2018
General project description 

Preparing students for the 21st century means teaching them higher-order thinking (HOT). This requires a thorough theoretical and practical understanding of how HOT develops and can be fostered. This Interlinked Research Project (IRP) aims to contribute to this understanding by taking a domain-specific conceptualization of HOT and focusing on primary mathematics education. While internationally, awareness is increasing that the foundation of HOT in mathematics has to be laid at young age, in Dutch primary schools it is almost absent. To provide evidence for enriching the current mathematics curriculum the IRP investigates in three part-projects what opportunities-to-learn HOT can be offered by dynamic data modeling, probability, and early algebra. The IRP is grounded in embodied cognition theory, representational re-description theory, and variation theory and uses interventions with ICT. The design combines macro-genetic longitudinal studies (development over one school year) and micro-genetic studies nested within the macrogenetic studies (development over lesson series).

Pre-COOL National Cohortstudy Early Childhood Education and Care
01.09.2009 to 31.12.2018
General project description 

Pre-COOL is a national representative cohort study in which about 2900 children are followed from age 2 to age 6 (2nd kindergarten grade of primary school) in order to determine the effects of early childhood education and care provisions on child social-emotional and cognitive development. From age 6, part of the cohort will be included in the COOL cohort study and followed until age 18, so that in due time conclusions can be drawn about the effectiveness of early childhood provisions in the long-term. Pre-COOL is carried out by a consortium of Kohnstamm Institute, ITS and the University of Utrecht. Within the consortium, Utrecht University is especially responsible for the development of child tests, observation instruments and questionnaires.

Project:
Embodied cognition and verbal redescription in understanding science and technology phenomena 01.08.2012 to 31.12.2015
General project description

The purpose of this study is to support the revelation of children’s talent in understanding phenomena in science and technology (S&T) and gaining knowledge about the development of this understanding. The focus will be on two age groups: 4-5 olds and 10-11 olds and will include three S&T systems: physics, mathematics, and technology. The study contributes to the ‘filling’ of the ‘Talent map’ as a guide for fostering children’s S&T talent. The heart of the study forms the carrying out of a series of theory-led interviews of children, based on principles from embodied cognition and representational redescription. The collected data will give possibilities for micro- and macro-genetic diachronic analyses within systems as well as synchronic analyses between systems.

Project:
Religious and cultural identity markers for children in state interventions 01.02.2014 to 31.08.2015
General project description




The media have recently reported on several cases involving minority families in which youth care agencies intervened because the emotional and physical development of childresn was at stake. The dominant secular societal and legal norms concerning the development of children into balanced individuals appear to clash with religious and cultural norms. Preliminary research has confirmed that childcare workers and judges lack an evaluative framework through which to determine how the interests of society and parents should be weighed against interests relating to the future identity of the child. This multidisciplinary research project investigates the way(s) and extent to which state agencies should take account of religious and cultural influences upon the development of children's identities when taking child protection measures. The aims are twofold. Firstly, to establish building blocks for a framework that enables professionals in the field to identify and understand the multiple components that constitute the complex cases involving minorities in which child protection measures are considered. Secondly, to provide a solid foundation for future research into the legitimacy of state interventions in cases concerning child protection in today's pluralistic European societies.
