Everything Teachers Need to Know about Bloom's Digital Taxonomy

Everything Teachers Need to Know about Bloom's Digital Taxonomy
April 8, 2015 Bloom's Taxonomy is one of the major themes here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. We have been extensively sharing resources on it and we have a separate section where you can access and check all the resources we have posted so far. A refresher for you, Blooms traditional taxonomy which was published sometime in the middle of the last century was revised in 2001 and henceforth was labelled Blooms Revised Taxonomy. This revision is a little bit different from the original one in that it replaces nouns with verbs and places emphasis on the process of creating by putting it on the top of the thinking continuum. Since the emergence of the Revised Taxonomy, several educators have been adding to it expanding thus its scope and making it even more comprehensible by integrating technology component into it. Andrew Churches is one of the first guys who was behind the marriage of revised taxonomy and technology; a marriage which resulted in "digital Blooms Taxonomy".

Two Wonderful Bloom's Taxonomy Paint Palette for Teachers Kelly from iLearntechnology has just posted this wonderful and creative work. These are two Blooms Taxonomy palettes that visually explain the learning process associated with this taxonomy. Kelly purposefully designed these palettes to contain different colours because as he argued that learning is also colourful and is therefore composed of many colours. Web Browsers I know that not everyone is into talking about web browsers to the same extent as I am. But it is an important topic. Web browsers directly impact our user experience on the web, and often we’ll blame a web site for problems without realizing the issues may actually be caused by our browser. So I thought I would share what I’ve learned over the years when helping others with web browser issues.

Blooms, SAMR & the 3 C's - iSupport All the apps you’ll ever need As I prepared for an upcoming presentation at a local University I unloaded my test iPad of all its applications and created a new iPad, complete only with apps which I use at school every week. This iPad would become my “essentials” iPad, strategically and efficiently full of apps I wholly recommend to every educator I meet. I went through the apps and I developed a list, indicating the apps purpose. I found that these purposes consistently fell into 3 categories: Consumption, Creation and Collaboration. I found I had many educational gaming type apps (gamification of learning) which fitted into the Consumption category.

Academic perceptions of higher education assessment processes in neoliberal academia - Social Theory Applied Published in Foucault, Latest Posts by Rille Raaper on March 25, 2015 Photo by Flickr Id Eric E Castro (CC) Just published: Raaper, R.

A New Wonderful Wheel on SAMR and Bloom's Digital Taxonomy The buzz that the Modern Taxonomy Wheel generated over the last couple of weeks has not yet died out and now we have a new updated wheel from the same guy Allan Carrington. We love Allan's work and we find it really interesting. His wheels come along in such a visually attractive way summarizing most of the apps and web tools we have been sharing here with you. If you already had a chance to have a look at the previous wheel and compare it with this new one you will notice that Allan has brought about some new updates to the new wheel.

The Characteristics of a Digitally Competent Teacher Infographic Teacher Infographics The Characteristics of a Digitally Competent Teacher Infographic Being a proper digitally competent teacher is not as simple as one may think. The Characteristics of a Digitally Competent Teacher InfographicIn clarifies and explains some of the most important characteristics that a digitally competent teacher must have. 7 Characteristics of a Digitally Competent Teacher Addressing Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs with Technology A major criticism I have of most educational institutions is that their primary focus is on students’ intellectual and cognitive development. Too often individual learner’s needs do not enter into the equation of their educations. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is a useful model for educators to use to help insure that they are addressing more of the whole child. Applying Abraham Maslow’s theory of a pyramid-shaped hierarchy — physiological needs, personal safety, social affiliation, self-esteem and self-actualization — to education is an ideal way to assess lesson plans, courses and educational programs. By asking themselves whether these needs are being met in their school or classroom, educators can assess how well they are applying Maslow’s hierarchy to their teaching practice (How to Apply Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to Education).

Flip This: Bloom’s Taxonomy Should Start with Creating Chris Davis, Powerful Learning Practice LLC By Shelley Wright I think the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy is wrong. I know this statement sounds heretical in the realms of education, but I think this is something we should rethink, especially since it is so widely taught to pre-service teachers. I agree that the taxonomy accurately classifies various types of cognitive thinking skills. It certainly identifies the different levels of complexity.
