New Bloom's Taxonomy Poster for Teachers

Since its release in the last half of the 20th century, it has been widely adopted within the education sector and was used extensively to design and create learning materials and curriculum content. Bloom's taxonomy maps out learning skills along a thinking continuum that starts with lower order thinking skills in one end (e.g. remembering and understanding) and moves up in difficulty to the other end that embraces higher order thinking skills (e.g. evaluating and creating). However, Bloom's taxonomy has been repeatedly modified to suit the requirements of the era in which it is used .

Thus, we ended up having different versions of Blooms taxonomy. Bloom's Digital Taxonomy. This is the introduction to Bloom's Digital Taxonomy.

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy

The 27 Characteristics of A 21st Century Teacher

There is a growing and heated debate whether or not to label educators as 21st century and each camp has its own concept and arguments, however, for me personally I see teaching in 21st century as having undergone a paradigmatic shift. This is basically due to the emerging of the " social web" and the huge embrace of technology and particularly the mobile gadgetry in our classrooms. It would be unfair to ignore these huge transformations and their impact on education. Therefore, and as a result of these changes teachers now are required to have digital skills that were not called for before.

It also becomes imperative for teachers to adapt their teaching practices to the developing learning needs of their students if ever this teaching is to be effective. Having said that, we are sharing with you today this great infographic from Mia featuring the 27 ways to be 21st century teacher. courtesy of : Awesome Graphic Featuring 12 Learning Skills for 21st Century Learners.

Developing Questions for Critical Thinking. “Education must be increasingly concerned about the fullest development of all children and youth, and it will be the responsibility of the schools to seek learning conditions which will enable each individual to reach the highest level of learning possible.”

Benjamin Bloom Handbook on Formative and Summative Evaluation of Student Learning Bloom’s original taxonomy (developed in the 1950's) divided the way people learn into three domains: cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. In the 1990's Lorin Anderson, a former student of Bloom revised the original cognitive domain. The original Bloom's taxonomy is still relevant, but under the new revisions the six major categories of the cognitive domain were changed from noun to verb format and some subcategories were reorganized.

The revised taxonomy is preferred by some educators as a more authentic tool for curriculum planning, instructional delivery, and assessment. BarryFunEnglish. PBS LearningMedia.
