This page gathers all of the Bloomin' Apps projects in one place.Each of the images has clickable hotspots and includes suggestions for iPad, Google, Android, and Web 2.0 applications to support each of the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.The use of the triangle shape for Bloomin' apps projects was not used to help clear up the misunderstanding that the levels are hierarchical andthe top levels only make up a tiny portion of the cognitive processes.I have created a page to allow you to share your favorite Web 2.0, iOS, or Android app with others. Option 1 I was recently reflecting on the triangular shape the Bloom's taxonomies utilize.

Poetry is one of the arts that many students struggle with. I always found that providing a initial successful learning experience was the best way to instil both confidence and foster engagement with my students. Here are a bunch of apps that would allow a student to get their teeth into writing some poetry and for those that struggle an opportunity to see just what they are capable of. Word Mover: FREE Word Mover mobile is used to supplement classroom instruction, reinforce concepts taught in class, and offer increased student engagement. Word Mover allows children and teens to create "found poetry" by choosing from word banks and existing famous works; create a piece of poetry by manipulating the text.

iMovie is available for newer handhelds for movie making, but many prefer ReelDirector because it works on older iPod touches and iPads. Combine images, video, and audio with ReelDirector. Splice, trim, and split video clips, and pan and zoom video and photos. You can also add titles and subtitles, and choose from 28 transitions. Slideshows, comics, animations, storybooks, and movies are just a few of the many ways students can present their projects. It's nice to give students choices of apps to use.
