Introduction to Bloom’s Taxonomy – Niall McNulty

This e-book is a practical guide for teachers on how to use Bloom’s taxonomy in a digital classroom setting. An introduction is provided to the Bloom’s taxonomy framework and its adaption for use in a digital environment, with each level discussed and a digital activity suggested that teachers could use with their students. Benjamin Samuel Bloom (February 21, 1913 – September 13, 1999) was an American educational psychologist who examined and then restructured the way teaching should be approached, to maximise learners’ performance. His book, The Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: The Classification of Educational Goals (1956), set out a series of learning objectives that became known as Bloom’s taxonomy. Bloom’s taxonomy: what is it, and how is it used? Bloom’s taxonomy is a multi-layered model for encouraging learning by progressing through six levels of increasing complexity.

Media and Information Literacy

While some people are starved for information, others are flooded with print, broadcast and digital content. Media and Information Literacy (MIL) provides answers to the questions that we all ask ourselves at some point. How can we access, search, critically assess, use and contribute content wisely, both online and offline? What are our rights online and offline? What are the ethical issues surrounding the access and use of information? Through capacity-building resources, such as curricula development, policy guidelines and articulation, and assessment framework, UNESCO supports the development of MIL competencies among people.

Information processing

The Inspiration web above shows how Information Processing can be likened to the model of a computer. The Sensory Register would include input devices like CDs. Information processing (IP) is a cognitive processing theory (see, Ashcraft, 1994). Another aspect of this theory is that it is explicitly analogous to a computer's processor. Let's start with the model and an example. Caption: The illustration above represents my coffee cup example.

Sensory Registers The best understood of the sensory registers (SRs) are for hearing (echoic) and seeing (iconic). Short-term Memory Short-term memory (STM) is also known as working memory, and is where consciousness exists. STM is where the world meets what is already known, and where thinking is done.

Nine events of instruction. 1 Definition "Nine events of instruction" is an instructional design model put together by Gagne.

Nine events of instruction

This is a behaviorist model that also draws from cognitivism. 2 The conditions of learning “Essential to Gagne's ideas of instruction are what he calls "conditions of learning. " He breaks these down into internal and external conditions. Gagné's most essential ingrediants of teaching are: presenting the knowledge or demonstrating the skillproviding practice with feedbackproviding learner guidance These elements have to be designed differently according to the type of learning level (learning goal) to be achieved.
