5 Tools to Create and Administer Quizzes Online Other than attending staff meetings, writing and grading quizzes might be the least enjoyable part of teaching. Fortunately, there are some tools that can make the process a little bit easier. Here are five tools teachers can use to create and administer quizzes online. There are many other quiz and survey tools on the web, but not all of them provide the option to see quiz takers' results. These five were chosen because teachers can see their students' results.

Games as instructional technology II: Bloom’s Taxonomy | Pamela J. Morgan Another pedagogical element present in games is Bloom’s Taxonmy. In an effort to hierarchically order cognitive processes, Benjamin Bloom developed the Taxonomy of Cognitive Outcomes. Bloom’s cognitive taxonomy is based on the idea that cognitive activity can be ordered into six levels, each increasingly complex. The application of this hierarchy is evident in games.

eTools for Language Teachers - PowerPoint Exercises Over the years, I have created many different lessons for K to 8 French classes using PowerPoint presentations. I believe that PowerPoint is truly the best way to teach song lyrics because the children just follow along as the words come up and the images greatly facilitate comprehension. I recommend that you read the songs through once with the children, and then play it with the music the second time through. There are also two stories here on PowerPoint with sound effects that the students really enjoy. You can download any and all of the presentations in this section for free.

Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy | More Than English: Teaching Language & Content to ELLs What is Bloom’s Taxonomy? Bloom’s Taxonomy in its various forms represents the process of learning. It was developed in 1956 by Benjamin Bloom and modified during the 1990’s by a new group of cognitive psychologists, led by Lorin Anderson (a former student of Bloom’s) to make it relevant to the 21st century. The revised taxonomy emphasizes what a learner “Can Do” so the stages are now represented as verbs: We must remember a concept before we can understand it. So how do I use this in the classroom? We need to “teach to the highest and scaffold the lowest” students of all ages and levels of English proficiency. Remember Understand Apply Analyze Evaluate Create Model what each means for your students in the context of a lesson. It is useful to picture Bloom’s taxonomy as a wheel since all stages are not required for every lesson and every lesson does not necessarily lead to “Creating.” While you are teaching, get in the habit of pointing out how what your class is doing relates to Bloom’s.

Dos aplicaciones web para convertir de "pdf a .doc" y de "jpg a pdf" Hace una semana que les dejamos un convertidor de PDF a PNG, el cual era bien sencillo de utilizar y sin siquiera tener que pasar por un proceso de registro. Pues bien recibimos algunas peticiones de otros convertidores similares, por ahora los que tenemos así a la mano son unos para convertir de “pdf a .doc” y de “jpg a pdf”, sencillos sin necesidad de registro pero efectivos en el funcionamiento. 1.- Esta aplicación nos permite convertir los PDF a .doc que sabemos es más sencillo de editar, y la verdad es que funciona bastante bien y con una interfaz simple para cualquier usuario. 2.- Esta aplicación nos permite convertir imágenes JPEG en documentos PDF, algo que suelen hacer mucho los diseñadores cuando desean mostrar sus creaciones a los clientes. Sabemos que hay muchas de estas aplicacicones en la web, pero sin tener que registrarse a veces suele ser más complejo de encontrar. Esperamos que puedan ser útiles a los lectores de nerdilandia.

Bloom's Taxonomy Lesson Plans in the Classroom Have you ever heard a student complain, "This question is so hard!"? While this may be a common complaint, there are reasons that some questions are harder than others. The difficulty of a question or an assignment can be measured by the level of the critical thinking skill required. Introduction to Bloom's Taxonomy: To help determine the level of critical thinking for a task, Benjamin Bloom, an American educational psychologist, developed a way to categorize the different levels of critical reasoning skills required in classroom situations. There are six levels in the taxonomy, each requiring a higher level of abstraction from the students. Knowledge In the knowledge level of Bloom's Taxonomy, questions are asked solely to test whether a student has gained specific information from the lesson. Comprehension The comprehension level of Bloom's Taxonomy has students go past simply recalling facts and instead has them understanding the information. Application Analysis Synthesis Evaluation
