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.
Overview of the Technique The jigsaw classroom is a cooperative learning technique with a three-decade track record of successfully reducing racial conflict and increasing positive educational outcomes. Just as in a jigsaw puzzle, each piece--each student's part--is essential for the completion and full understanding of the final product. If each student's part is essential, then each student is essential; and that is precisely what makes this strategy so effective. Here is how it works: The students in a history class, for example, are divided into small groups of five or six students each.
Ohio PTA Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) Committee National PTA (NPTA) announced in December 2009 a three year campaign to mobilize parents to advance the Common Core State Standards Initiative (CCSSI) along with other key education reforms. NPTA will build on PTA’s rich history advocating for education, health and child welfare reforms while complementing PTA’s current Public Policy Agenda. In 2009, Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, and North Carolina were the first states to receive funding and support to develop state-level CCSSI campaigns.
