100+ Bloom's Taxonomy Verbs For Critical Thinking

100+ Bloom's Taxonomy Verbs For Critical Thinking
100+ Bloom’s Taxonomy Verbs For Critical Thinking by TeachThought Staff Ed note: This post was first published in 2013 and updated in December of 2019 Bloom’s Taxonomy’s verbs–also know as power verbs or thinking verbs–are extraordinarily powerful instructional planning tools. In fact, in addition to concepts like backward-design and power standards, they are one of the most useful tools a teacher-as-learning-designer has access to. Why? They can be used for curriculum mapping, assessment design, lesson planning, personalizing and differentiating learning, and almost any other ‘thing’ a teacher–or student–has to do. For example, if a standard asks students to infer and demonstrate an author’s position using evidence from the text, there’s a lot built into that kind of task. Though the chart below reads left to right, it’s ideal to imagine it as a kind of incline, with Knowledge at the bottom, and Create at the top. 100+ Bloom’s Taxonomy Verbs For Critical Thinking Related:  *COURSE DESIGN + FACILITATION*COOPERATIVE LEARNINGLLD.4: Artikler _ Blogs _ Tekster

8 Steps to Creating a Virtual Employee Onboarding Program 5. Use breakout rooms, frequent check-ins, and superanimated facilitators to keep new hires engaged When Kelly’s team switched to an all-virtual footing, they had never heard the term “Zoom fatigue,” but they immediately understood how much more work they would need to do to keep participants engaged. “I am about one and a half to two times more animated when facilitating virtually than nonvirtually,” Kelly says. “A lot of it is how am I using nonverbal communication, like how am I using my hands, how am I using my facial expressions, am I looking at the camera, am I pointing at people, am I using names? In order for Kelly and other facilitators to stay focused on content and connections, they always work in tandem with a partner who focuses on managing the technology. To keep participants engaged, Kelly has some other tricks she uses frequently. Kelly aims to have her participants doing something interactive or engaging every 20 minutes. 6. 7. 8. “We’re still learning,” Kelly says.

10 Team-Building Games That Promote Collaborative Critical Thinking 10 Team-Building Games That Promote Critical Thinking by TeachThought Staff One of education’s primary goals is to groom the next generation of little humans to succeed in the ‘real world.’ Yes, there are mounds of curricula they must master in a wide breadth of subjects, but education does not begin and end with a textbook or test.

20 Unpopular Opinions! by Lars Avemarie – The Sports Physio I’m pleased to give you another guest blog this time from Lars Avemarie who isn’t afraid to question and challenge many things, including me, which can at times make him unpopular. As someone who is also unpopular for saying some things, Lars has done a blog on his most unpopular opinions. So without further ado, it’s over to Lars. I hold many science-based opinions, but most of them are unpopular because they go against the old dogmatic views that are within the pain management and physiotherapy profession. As noted by Barradell 2017 physiotherapy (like other industries) has a tendency to be tied to specific ways of seeing the world and these are passed down from old generations of physiotherapists to new physiotherapy graduates. It is like we look at the horizon through binoculars, only focusing on a small part of it, making us blind to all the other things we could discover. The real losers in this sad situation are our clients. Like this: Like Loading... Related

Empathy: Beyond the Jargon - Microsoft Design 5 insights from relationship therapy, zoos, ethics, and journalism on bringing empathy to the forefront Empathy has long been touted as a critical component for business success and positive employee and customer outcomes. As designers, we frequently discuss the value of empathy in our industry. But the word has become almost meaningless through its regurgitative over use, frequent misuse, and under implementation. Often this is a result of a mismatch between positive intentions, like “Let’s have more empathy!” As a strategist, I partner with universities, Microsoft teams, and companies around the world hoping to bring the value of empathy into their culture and processes. How can we go beyond interviewing customers, finding problems, and fixing things to truly building innovative experiences that amplify, augment, and unleash human potential? We explored these questions through different lenses. “A requirement for empathy is openness,” she said. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

12 Curriculum Planning Tips For Any Grade Level Or Content Area 12 Curriculum Planning Tips For Any Grade Level Or Content Area by Terry Heick Learning is really just a growth in awareness. From not knowing to knowing is part of it, but that’s really too simple because it misses all the degrees of knowing and not knowing. One can’t ever really truly understand something any more than a shrub can stay trimmed. There’s always growth or decay, changing contexts or conditions. Understanding is the same way: it’s fluid. Yes, this sounds silly and esoteric, but think about it. In fact, so little of the learning process is unchanging. Design. And so how students use this skill or understanding. And further how we, as teachers, “teach it.” Making Learning A Process That Honors Change The implications of awareness reach even further than that, however. It’s more than merely “understanding” or not, and grasping changing contexts for that understanding. See also 10 Team-Building Games That Promote Critical Thinking 1.

Højt blodtryk? Så er det ikke nok at spare på saltet Man har længe vidst at bordsalt er noget af det vigtigste, når det kommer til faktorer, man kan ændre på i forhold til blodtrykket. For meget salt, og dit blodtryk stiger, især hvis du i forvejen har forhøjet blodtryk eller er nyresyg. Fakta Historien kort Det er alment kendt, at for meget salt er en dårlig ting, hvis du lider af forhøjet blodtryk. Har du problemer med blodtrykket, skal du derfor passe på med mængden af salt (natrium-klorid, NaCl) i maden og ikke mindst saltlakridserne, chips, pizza og feta. I 2017 fejres 20-året for videnskabelig påvisning af kostfaktorers betydning for blodtrykket. Det såkaldte 'DASH'-studium ('dietary approaches to stop hypertension', på dansk 'kostmæssige tilgange for at stoppe forhøjet blodtryk') påviste, at systematisk ændring af kosten med øget indhold af blandt andet fibre, magnesium, calcium og ikke mindst kalium kunne sænke blodtrykket betydeligt. Mange studier – blandt andet helt nye fra Frankrig – bekræfter dette. Hvad er det nye? ForskerZonen

UDL + Design Thinking = Designing for All Learners Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and design thinking frameworks advance instructional design practice and should frame design from the start. In the first steps of design thinking, effort is focused on understanding by empathizing with the users and exploring the users’ challenges. Then you start to identify by ideation with resulting prototyping steps. Following these, you test the prototypes and implement your new design for the users. A UDL mindset fused with design thinking supports continuous improvement in which, after implementation, a designer will use continual improvement to deliver content, evaluate, make changes, deliver newly designed or updated content, and evaluate again in a cyclical manner. Knowing Your Audience Talent developers are often encouraged to know their audience. Access Is More Than Accessibility Sometimes the writing is what you are measuring.

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups 6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups by TeachThought Staff Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so. The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. MackMeekin’s suggestion to consider problem-based learning in a group setting is especially useful in that it also provides a link to the design of curriculum and instruction as well, rather than merely being a grouping strategy. This highlights the ecology of teaching and learning; changes here necessitate adaptations there. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. image attribution Mia Mackmeekin; This work by Mia MacMeekin is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs 3.0 Unported License; 6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups

Vi bør tage socialt ansvar HOLDNING // Danske Fysioterapeuter bør går foran, når det handler om at udfordre uligheden i sundhed. Sådan lyder det fra Nicolas Kjerulf, lektor fra Københavns Professionshøjskole. Hvor er Danske Fysioterapeuters fokus på den sociale ulighed i sundhed og i særdeleshed på de socialt udsatte borgere? I et Danmark, som aldrig har været rigere, er den sociale ulighed i sundhed desværre fortsat stor og sågar på nogle områder stigende. Hvis du er i tvivl om det udsagn, så besøg Sundhedsstyrelsens webinar om ulighed i sundhed fra sidste år. Fremtidsforskere advarer os om en fremtid for fysioterapeuter og andre sundhedsprofessioner, hvor behovet for vores ydelser vil stige eksplosivt på grund af flere ældre med kronisk sygdom og multisygdom. Der er derfor en kæmpe mulighed for at forebygge en stor del af sygdomsbyrden, hvis vi reducerer den sociale ulighed i sundhed. Vi bør som profession tage socialt ansvar.

Don't Overlook Accessibility in E-Learning As online learning expands, organizations need to adapt courses for all learners. In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and its accompanying social distancing guidelines, many organizations have had to bring more learning online, converting traditional classroom training into self-paced e-learning and live virtual classroom formats. And while those efforts have enabled many employees to continue learning amid extraordinary circumstances, companies may be leaving out some learners. Advertisement According to the Association for Talent Development’s E-Learning: The Evolving Landscape report, 26 percent of organizations do not make accessibility considerations in their e-learning programs for individuals with disabilities. The consequences should worry talent development leaders. The effect was statistically significant at a level of p < 0.01, which implies that there was a less than a 1 percent probability that it appeared in the research because of chance.
