Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version

Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version
So much have been written about Bloom’s taxonomy; one click in a search engine will flood your page with hundreds of articles all of which revolve around this taxonomy. Only few are those who have tried to customize it to fit in the 21st century educational paradigm. As a fan of Bloom’s pedagogy and being a classroom practitioner, I always look for new ways to improve my learning and teaching, and honestly speaking , if you are a teacher/ educator and still do not understand Bloom’s taxonomy then you are missing out on a great educational resource. The following article is a summary and a fruit of my long painstaking research in the field of Bloom’s taxonomy. Bloom’s taxonomy of learning as Wikipedia has put it is “ a classification of learning objectives within education proposed in 1956 by a committee of educators chaired by Benjamin Bloom ”. 1 – The cognitive : The intellectual or knowledge based domain consisted of 6 levels . Let us now go through the different domains stated here.

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".

Beyond Substitution: The SAMR Model | 2011 Summer Tech Institute Think technology and education end with Word documents and Google Apps? Think again. SAMR, a model designed to help educators integrate technology into teaching and learning , was developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura.

Give it five minutes A few years ago I used to be a hothead. Whenever anyone said anything, I’d think of a way to disagree. I’d push back hard if something didn’t fit my world-view. It’s like I had to be first with an opinion – as if being first meant something. But what it really meant was that I wasn’t thinking hard enough about the problem. The faster you react, the less you think. It’s easy to talk about knee jerk reactions as if they are things that only other people have. This came to a head back in 2007. And what did I do? His response changed my life. This was a big moment for me. Richard has spent his career thinking about these problems. There’s also a difference between asking questions and pushing back. Learning to think first rather than react quick is a life long pursuit. If you aren’t sure why this is important, think about this quote from Jonathan Ive regarding Steve Jobs’ reverence for ideas: That’s deep. There are two things in this world that take no skill: 1.

Recursos para maestros de Puerto Rico A Printable Guide to Social Media [#Infographic] Cram a dozen educators into a conference room and ask them to name the most popular social media tools used by students, and it’s a safe bet everybody at the table could rattle off the top two: Facebook and Twitter. But those are far from the only online applications making inroads in schools. As administrators warm to engaging students through social media, the list of potential resources at their disposal grows longer by the day. Facebook and Twitter are the obvious choices. Of course, if naming the latest social media tools seems tough, learning how to use them all is harder still. As the editors at Edudemic were right to point out, the infographic, which was written with small businesses in mind, has a few glaring omissions — Pinterest, for one. Is there a social media application not listed here that you’d like to learn more about?

Test Information About The Course We have created a new course (based on the “Puzzle-Based Learning” book) that focuses on getting students to think about framing and solving unstructured problems. We believe that the course is based on the best traditions introduced by Gyorgy Polya and Martin Gardner during the last 60 years. The course can be offered as a full semester course or as a unit – part of an introductory course (e.g. Introduction to Engineering, or Introduction to Business). To enhance student engagement and participation, many of the assignments can be based on software versions of some puzzles and provided to students in the form of serious games. The course is applicable to a large variety of colleges (faculties), including engineering, science, business, law, and health, as well as corporations that would like to develop problem-solving skills in their employees, managers, and executives. Finally, power-point slides and other teaching materials are available on request.
