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.

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. This is an update to Bloom's Revised Taxonomy which attempts to account for the new behaviours and actions emerging as technology advances and becomes more ubiquitous. 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.

The revised cognitive domain introduced by Lorin Anderson in the 1990's revised the original domains by changing from noun to format and realigning the categories. In the revised domain remembering serves as the lowest level of thinking and creating serves as the highest. Use the links below to work with the recently revised categories. Use the tabs at the top of the page to work with the original domains and categories.
