SOLO Taxonomy SOLO Taxonomy This post would not have been possible without the help from DamianClark , Neil Watkin and the Darren Mead SOLO Taxonomy is something that I have researched for a long while and now I’ve finally had the opportunity to try it out for real in the classroom – with, in my mind, staggering results. For everything you need to know about SOLO Taxonomy please refer to the fabulous Hoo kED website. In a nutshell the taxonomy allows “.. the learner to think about the strengths and weaknesses of their own thinking when they are learning and to make thoughtful decisions on what to do next.” The taxonomy focusses on learning, is extremely student friendly, allows teachers and students to consider feed”forward” strategies, can be used for any learning context and above all is easier to use and understand than Bloom’s Taxonomy.

Thinking Tools | Teacher & Student Planners The Online Interactive Thinking Strategies and Tools are designed to provide a scaffold which enables students to think with more depth and structure. When using them, ask students to continually reflect on and justify which Habits of Mind best suit how they are thinking. When students are presenting their thoughts and findings, encourage them to use their dominant Multiple Intelligences. Their presentations could be a talk, role-play, poster, PowerPoint, essay, flowchart, idea map, song, dance or a combination of them.

Encouraging Imaginative Play Encouraging Imaginative Play Childhood is at risk, and the first thing on the endangered list appears to be a lack of imagination. This is largely due to the inability of some children to create pictures in their own minds. A simple skill many adults might assume…but one that needs nurturing and developing in early childhood. As A.C. Harwood (author of The Recovery of Man in Childhood ) warned: When a child is accustomed to having everything presented to him in ready made pictures, he loses the faculty of creating his own pictures in his imagination.

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.

Bloom's Revised Taxonomy describes many traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions, but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with Web 2.0 technologies, infowhelm (the exponential growth in information), increasing ubiquitous personal technologies or cloud computing.Bloom's Digital Taxonomy isn't about the tools or technologies rather it is about using these to facilitate learning.
