New Version of Blooms Taxonomy for iPad

Over the last couple of years, we have been posting dozens of articles on how teachers can can apply the HOTS ( Higher Order Thinking Skills ) in their teaching. You can check the resources below to learn more. In this post we worked on some iPad apps that go along with each of the skills mentioned in Blooms Taxonomy. We have based our work on the popular Poster Langwiches made before but because she missed hyperlinking the apps we tried to avoid this mistake in the table below. Parent Communication Log.

Books a teenage boy should read

I was happy living in a world filled with computer games and blockbuster-movies. But as I got older and thanks to a few good English teachers, I discovered that books weren’t all that bad. Looking back it sounds stupid. I learned that books could teach you about things that others wouldn’t talk about. I’ve already written on Mamamia about how one author helped me grab adolescence by the gut and take control. What was starting to feel like a rocky road, quickly became more manageable, thanks to reading the words written by an older Aussie bloke who’d already been there and done that.

I’ve since been searching libraries and bookstores to find other books that I wish I’d read as a teenager. Below is the list of six books I reckon every Aussie male teenager (fifteen years old and over) should own. Mums – all it needs it a gentle push.

Welcome to the ACARA update

The curriculum developed by ACARA for 14 subjects will include content and achievement standards that will provide the basis for greater consistency in what is to be taught in senior secondary years of schooling. The focus for consultation will be on whether the proposed curriculum content and achievement standards represent what young Australians should have the opportunity to learn in the senior years of schooling. Once approved, the national curriculum will be available for integration into state and territory courses which will also include additional information, guidelines and rules that meet local assessment and certification requirements.

Everything You Thought You Knew About Learning Is Wrong

Topic-focused study? A consistent learning environment? All are exactly opposite the best strategies for learning. Really, I recently had the good fortune to interview Robert Bjork, director of the UCLA Learning and Forgetting Lab, distinguished professor of psychology, and massively renowned expert on packing things in your brain in a way that keeps them from leaking out. Here's what he said. First, think about how you attack a pile of study material. Instead of making an appreciable leap forward with yourserving ability after a session of focused practice, interleaving forces you to make nearly imperceptible steps forward with many skills. There’s one caveat: Make sure the mini skills you interleave are related in some higher-order way. And again, these tips generalize. The more you work, the more you learn, and the more you learn, the more awesome you can become.
