Flip This: Bloom’s Taxonomy Should Start with Creating

Flip This: Bloom’s Taxonomy Should Start with Creating
Teaching Strategies Chris Davis, Powerful Learning Practice LLC By Shelley Wright I think the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy is wrong. I know this statement sounds heretical in the realms of education, but I think this is something we should rethink, especially since it is so widely taught to pre-service teachers. I agree that the taxonomy accurately classifies various types of cognitive thinking skills. Conceived in 1956 by a group of educators chaired by Benjamin Bloom, the taxonomy classifies skills from least to most complex. Many teachers in many classrooms spend the majority of their time in the basement of the taxonomy, never really addressing or developing the higher order thinking skills that kids need to develop. Rather than starting with knowledge, we start with creating, and eventually discern the knowledge that we need from it. Here’s what I propose: we flip Bloom’s taxonomy. Creating at the Forefront In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements.

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.

5 Digital Tools For The Flipped Classroom Hafsa Wajeeh, dtopgadgets Have you “Flipped your classroom” yet? The flipped classroom is a useful technique that has moved lectures out of the class, and onto digital media. @Westylish's Blog: Closing the Gap - developing efficient feedback techniques Towards the end of last term and at the start of this I have been looking to develop my strategies for ensuring students make the most of their feedback and hopefully therefore make the most progress. Firstly, I think it's important to say that none of the principles I am discussing here are new to my practice. All of the things I have done before. What I am really talking about here is ways of systematising what I do to make sure that as many students as possible can successfully close the gap between where they are and where they want to be.

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?

Bloomin' Apps 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".

Salman Khan on Liberating the Classroom for Creativity (Big Thinkers Series) Sal Khan: What Khan Academy is most known for is there's a library for about 2,500 videos. Right now they're all made by me in English, although we are translating them, and they're everything from basic addition all the way to vector calculus and the French Revolution. And there's a video on the debt ceiling, [ laughs ] so a very comprehensive set of videos, and we keep add -- I keep adding more right now. But we've augmented it now that we've gotten funding this past year with an exercise platform, and it's an exercise platform that -- I'd actually written a primitive version of it for my cousins many of years ago, actually before I'd even made the first video, but I didn't have the bandwidth nor the talent to properly do that justice. And so when we got funding, I said, "This is where I think a lot of the meat is is actually giving people exercises and feedback and letting the videos complement that". Sal Khan: We don't want to force a role out to every school in the country.

education, learning & technology Teacher confidence in using technology is often a problem for schools that are pushing for colleagues to use technology to enhance learning within their educational establishment. Ensuring that teachers are confident when coming to use technology is a big deal. There are lots of ways in which you can help support colleagues, one of my favourite tried and tested methods is through the use of Digital Leaders. Their non-confrontational, helpful and supportive training is, in my experience, the perfect recipe for helping educators.
