Bloom’s Taxonomy is a useful tool for assessment design, but using it only for that function is like using a race car to go to the grocery–a huge waste of potential.

This is the introduction to Bloom's Digital Taxonomy. The different taxonomical levels can be viewed individually via the navigation bar or below this introduction as embedded pages.

“Everyone sits in the prison of his own ideas. A human being is a part of the whole called by us “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

Here is this week’s edition of Treasure Chest–63 EdTech Resources You May Have Missed. I know, that’s a lot! What’s funny though is that I thought this week would bring my fewest number of resources.
With the rapid rise of crowdsourcing over the last five years since the term was coined by Jeff Howe in Wired , there has been a lot of coverage on how individuals, organizations and businesses can implement the concept into their work.
