Bloom’s Taxonomy & The iPadThe iPad – A Device To… Create Despite Steve Jobs having declared the iPad as a device for consuming media, students at Zeeland Public Schools (ZPS) continue to create engaging papers, presentations and multi-media products to demonstrate their deep understanding of the curriculum. Pic Collage, Story Creator, Corkulous, Scribble Press, Videolicious, Educreations, Evernote, Haiku Deck, and iMotion HD are just a small sampling of the amazing apps students at every grade level are using to synthesize their understanding. Consume Not only are students creating on the iPad, but teachers are generating their own products for their classes to consume. Collaborate & Communicate Collaboration and communication go hand-in-hand, and the 1:1 technology initiative at ZPS fosters these skills. Critical Thinking Metacognition and critical thinking reach new heights as our teachers challenge learners to evaluate their own work, that of their peers, and even that of people in other countries.
O que é a Web 2.0?Publicado: 05.01.2007 | 18:58 (GMT) Há quem critique o termo, mas os seus partidários destacam o poder acrescido que o utilizador tem na produção e consumo de conteúdos na rede. O termo "Web 2.0" foi criado pela empresa O'Reilly Media em 2004 e refere-se a uma segunda geração de serviços na Internet com enfâse na colaboração e partilha de informação.

Segundo Tim O'Reilly, fundador da O'Reilly Media, a Web 2.0 "é a mudança para uma internet como plataforma, e um entendimento das regras para obter sucesso nesta nova plataforma.

banatoli: Bloom's Taxonomy & Twitter...BAD - Associação Portuguesa de Bibliotecários, Arquivistas e Documentalistas6 Alternatives To Bloom's Taxonomy For Teachers -This post is updated from an article we published in April. At the end of the day, teaching is about learning, and learning is about understanding. And as technology evolves to empower more diverse and flexible assessments forms, constantly improving our sense of what understanding looks like–during mobile learning, during project-based learning, and in a flipped classroom–can not only improve learning outcomes, but just might be the secret to providing personalized learning for every learner. This content begs the question: why does one need alternatives to the established and entrenched Bloom’s? Because Bloom’s isn’t meant to be the alpha and the omega of framing instruction, learning, and assessment. So with apologies to Bloom (whose work we covered recently), we have gathered five alternatives to his legendary, world-beating taxonomy, from the TeachThought Simple Taxonomy, to work from Marzano to Fink, to the crew at Understanding by Design.
