4 Visual Guides To Bloom's Taxonomy Apps
Yesterday, we looked at an overview of the old and revised versions of Bloom’s taxonomy . We talked a little bit about categorizing current classroom activities to see which of Bloom’s objectives you’re addressing (whether intentionally or unintentionally). Today, we’re looking at some apps and web tools that address the Bloom’s taxonomy objectives – helping bring Mr. Bloom into the 21st century. There are a ton of great lists out there that showcase many (many, many) apps and digital tools that address the objectives. And they are by no means comprehensive, so don’t limit yourself. Rather than reinventing the wheel here, we’ll start by looking at a few lists compiled by different folks along the way. Next, we have a graphic formatted in the same way as the revised taxonomy. Next up, a visually pleasing peacock. Kathy Schrock always puts together great lists of tools that address Bloom’s – here is just one of them.
10 Reasons Why Students Aren't Using eTextbooks
When e-textbooks were first introduced, they were supposed to be the wave of the future, and experts thought we’d see e-reader-toting students littering college campuses, and of course being adopted in droves by online university students. But they haven’t taken off quite as expected: according to market research firm Student Monitor, only about 11% of college students have bought e-textbooks. So what happened? The books they need aren’t available in digital format:For many students, e-book use isn’t about preference or price, but instead, availability.
This page gathers all of the Bloomin' Apps projects in one place.Each image has clickable hotspots and includes suggestions for iPad, Android, Google and online tools and applications to support each of the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.I have created a page to allow you to share your favorite online tool, iOS, or Android app with others. Cogs of the Cognitive Processes I began to think about the triangular shape of Bloom's Taxonomy and realized I thought of it a bit differently.Since the cognitive processes are meant to be used when necessary, and any learner goes in and out of the each level as they acquire new content and turn it into knowledge, I created a different type of image that showcased my thoughts about Bloom's more meaningfully.Here is my visual which showcases the interlocking nature of the cognitive processes or, simply, the "Cogs of the Cognitive Processes".

Rule of Three and other ideas
and other handy thoughts: so many folks have asked me for a "quick start" set of rules for the design of 3rd Millennium learning spaces... ... this Rule of Three section and some of the other ideas here (see top of this page), have all been well received in conferences, seminars and most importantly adopted / shared with success by practitioners. These are proven, working ideas, so I thought it was time to park some of them on a web page: I guess rule one is really that there is no absolutely right way to make learning better - schools are all different, their communities, contexts vary and as I have often observed on a windy day they become different places again. So you build your local recipe for great learning from the trusted and tested ingredients of others, adding a bit of local flair too. some schools adopting Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), or more recently Use My Own Device (UMOD - somehow, bringing them wasn't enough!) ambition: how good might your children be?
Fourni par Traduction DOWNLOAD THE LATEST VERSION: V4 published Mar 2015. This PDF Poster has links to 122 of the latest and most popular educational apps. Now these resources are available in 19 different languages. The poster also has app selection criteria according to Blooms taxonomy. V4.0 was published in March 2015 but I knew I was onto something useful when I first put the Padagogy Wheel together in July 2012. So why the need for Version 2.0? We need to have transformation at the core of what we do: If it is all about the students, where do you start with curriculum and/or teaching design – surely it is with what do you want your graduates to look like? Technology integration into the fabric of learning and teaching: is where we should be heading with all we do as teachers. Finally, can you help with V3.0?

What a classroom will look like in 10 years
Technology is rapidly evolving. This evolution is occurring because people are sharing ideas, resources and themselves online 24/7. So what does this mean for our education? Education has long been seen as a vertical un-adaptive to change. Fifty years ago schools had individual desks, a blackboard in the front of the room and a teacher who administered lessons and testing in accordance to their specific state. Although some schools are slower than others to adapt technology changes, that doesn’t mean others are not jumping in feet first and utilizing the open source way to change education as we know it. Here’s a wish list: Classrooms will be paperlessClassrooms will cater to more individualized instruction based on a student’s passionsCommunication will vastly improveNew learning spaces will pop up – that’s right, no more individual desks And here’s how this will happen because of an open source mentality: Classrooms will be paperless: Communication will vastly improve:
New Padagogy Wheel Helps You Integrate Technology Using SAMR Model
Sometimes a visual guide comes along and it just makes total sense. That’s how I felt about Allan Carrington’s clever ‘Padagogy Wheel‘ which we featured on Edudemic last week. Check out the previous version then view the one below to see the differences. But I was quite amazed this morning when I saw that the Padagogy Wheel had been updated. This new Padagogy Wheel (which honestly is less about iPads and more about technology integration now) should encourage you to focus on redefining your current standards, the current role tech plays in your classroom, and just about everything else.

10 (more) ways for teachers to learn
You can’t be a teacher, if you are not a learner. I’ve written many times about teachers as learners, professional learning, reading groups and learning through collaborative planning. I once posted 10 ways to grow as an educator, based on my reflections on my own learning and growth at that point in time. This week, I’m fortunate to be at an IB workshop in Chiang Mai, Thailand, training to be an IB workshop leader. Reflecting at the end of the first day, I have some ideas to add my list of ways teachers can learn… 1. Twitter is a fine place to start, if you can’t meet them in person. 2. Talk about learning in your context. 3. Learn in a beautiful, natural setting. 4. Preferably one that’s very different from yours. 5. Learn from what they do… and from what they don’t do. 6. Sum up the key points 140 characters at a time. 7. If you’re lucky, you can find them in your school. 8. Stop and think about what you learned. 9. 10.
