The Performance Improvement Blog I admire Tony Hseih, not because he built a billion-dollar shoe company that he sold to Amazon, or that he wrote “Delivering Happiness,” a book that has reached #1 on the New York Times Bestseller List, or that he is helping to rebuild downtown Las Vegas. All of those achievements are laudable. I admire Hseih because he is constantly experimenting in order to keep improving Zappos as an organization and as a place where people want to work and do their best. He has created a culture driven by values and improved through continuous learning. About a year ago, Hseih implemented the Holacracy model in Zappos because he wanted greater employee involvement and commitment.

18 Free Image Sites and Tools for Schools A picture is worth a thousand words, but it might also be worth a thousand dollars if your school gets hit with a copyright violation claim. This happens to schools every year as students or teachers inappropriately use an image that they do not have the rights to.

How To Create Engaging eLearning: 10 Effective Strategies “Engaging” is a word that you have probably heard a thousand times since you started your eLearning career; and a million more if you have worked as an educator or corporate trainer before that. Engaging learners is the ultimate goal of eLearning professionals, whether they create eLearning courses for students or employees, simply because the learning process becomes so, so much more difficult if their audience is not engaged in it. “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn” once said Benjamin Franklin, and you know he was right. When you create eLearning experiences that connect your learners with your online content, learning becomes simple, natural, and effortless. And it sticks.

When using Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy (a revised take on Bloom’s devised by educator Andrew Churches), it helps to have a list of verbs to know what actions define each stage of the taxonomy. This is useful for lesson planning, rubric making, and any other teacher-oriented task requiring planning and assessment strategies. The Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy verbs in this handy infographic apply specifically to each stage of the taxonomy. They progress from LOTS (lower-order thinking skills) to the HOTS (higher-order thinking skills). According to Churches on his wiki Edorigami, “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 …” This means the verbs listed below are applicable to facilitating technology use in the modern classrooms.

When I received the invitation from the new Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, I decided to completely upgrade two seminar workshops. Dr Ian Green from the School of Education here at Adelaide and I have used Padagogy101 (introduction to iPad in HE) and Padagogy201 (more advanced use for L&T) to train over 600 faculty from universities in Australia. For Singapore, Ian wasn’t going to be with me and I was solo, as well I needed a better way to leave resources in place for people to revisit. However I was completely surprised at what else happened. During my research I saw lots of great work done by others using Bloom’s Taxonomy including the Revised Taxonomy which has now become the Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy.
