All of those achievements are laudable. I admire Hseih because he is constantly experimenting in order to keep improving Zappos as an organization and as a place where people want to work and do their best. He has created a culture driven by values and improved through continuous learning. About a year ago, Hseih implemented the Holacracy model in Zappos because he wanted greater employee involvement and commitment. Now, because Hseih believes that Zappo’s employees “…haven’t made fast enough progress towards self-management, self-organization, and more efficient structures…,” he is shaking up the culture again.

He wrote in a recent email to employees: They make it a requirement—not an option—to pour one’s heart into one’s job. Performance Management vs. Human Performance Improvement | Performance I Create.

§. When using Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy (a revised take on Bloom’s devised by educator Andrew Churches), it helps to have a list of verbs to know what actions define each stage of the taxonomy. This is useful for lesson planning, rubric making, and any other teacher-oriented task requiring planning and assessment strategies. The Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy verbs in this handy infographic apply specifically to each stage of the taxonomy. They progress from LOTS (lower-order thinking skills) to the HOTS (higher-order thinking skills).

However I was completely surprised at what else happened. During my research I saw lots of great work done by others using Bloom’s Taxonomy including the Revised Taxonomy which has now become the Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy.

However when I discovered the excellent pioneer work done by Kathy Schrock with “Bloomin’ Apps” I got the idea for the Padagogy Wheel. I have added 62 iPad apps to the wheel and put them where they could serve the pedagogy. Hpi11. Human Performance Improvement. Human Performance Improvement.
