Bloom's Taxonomy Blooms Digitally

Bloom's Taxonomy Blooms Digitally
4/1/2008 By: Andrew Churches from Educators' eZine Introduction and Background: Bloom's Taxonomy In the 1950's Benjamin Bloom developed his taxonomy of cognitive objectives, Bloom's Taxonomy. This categorized and ordered thinking skills and objectives. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy In the 1990's, a former student of Bloom, Lorin Anderson, revised Bloom's Taxonomy and published this- Bloom's Revised Taxonomy in 2001.Key to this is the use of verbs rather than nouns for each of the categories and a rearrangement of the sequence within the taxonomy. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy Sub Categories Each of the categories or taxonomic elements has a number of key verbs associated with it Lower Order Thinking Skills (LOTS) Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS) The elements cover many of the activities and objectives but they do not address the new objectives presented by the emergence and integration of Information and Communication Technologies into the classroom and the lives of our students.

Bloom’s Taxonomy: Bloomin’ Peacock Tomorrow I am doing a training on the Treasures Supplement that I created over the summer. Most of the supplemental suggestions fall into the bottom two tiers of Bloom’s Taxonomy (Remember and Understand). I want to show teachers that just because these activities help students practice basic skills and remember and understand, there are SO many more options that will reach the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy! I created the Bloomin’ Peacock to show teachers the Blooms Taxonomy break down and the Bloomin’ digital Peacock that shows how the digital tools in the supplement break down. Below are the tools listed in my Bloomin’ Digital Peacock Bloomin' Digital Peacock

DIAL projects and activities DIAL Developed & supported Communities of Practice and Interest groups. The DIAL Project blog and the resource groups page (below) show DIAL projects and activities outputs to date. For all DIAL related posts on process.arts also see DIAL 2011 - 2013 group and the DIAL tag. Led and stewarded by the group initiators and participants Bloom's Taxonomy of Learning Domains Bloom's Taxonomy was created in 1956 under the leadership of educational psychologist Dr Benjamin Bloom in order to promote higher forms of thinking in education, such as analyzing and evaluating concepts, processes, procedures, and principles, rather than just remembering facts (rote learning). It is most often used when designing educational, training, and learning processes. The Three Domains of Learning The committee identified three domains of educational activities or learning (Bloom, et al. 1956): Cognitive: mental skills (knowledge) Affective: growth in feelings or emotional areas (attitude or self) Psychomotor: manual or physical skills (skills)

1000 Words: A Manifesto for Sustainability in Design 1000 Words: A Manifesto for Sustainability in Design By Allan Chochinov I don't like the word manifesto. It reeks of dogma and rules—two things I instinctually reject. I do love the way it puts things on the line, but I don't like lines, or groups. So a manifesto probably isn't for me. 6 Great Videos on Teaching Critical Thinking Critical thinking is a skill that we can teach to our students through exercise and practice. It is particularly a skill that contains a plethora of other skills inside it. Critical thinking in its basic definition refers" to a diverse range of intellectual skills and activities concerned with evaluating information as well as evaluating our thought in a disciplined way ". All of our students think in a way or another but the question is , do they really think critically ? are they able to evaluate the information they come across ? are they capable of going beyond the surface thinking layer ?

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy This is the introduction to Bloom's Digital Taxonomy. The different taxonomical levels can be viewed individually via the navigation bar or below this introduction as embedded pages. This is an update to Bloom's Revised Taxonomy which attempts to account for the new behaviours and actions emerging as technology advances and becomes more ubiquitous. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy describes many traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions, but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with Web 2.0 technologies, infowhelm (the exponential growth in information), increasing ubiquitous personal technologies or cloud computing.Bloom's Digital Taxonomy isn't about the tools or technologies rather it is about using these to facilitate learning.

The Design Studio / Developing digital literacies in the curriculum This resource set is for: teachers and other professionals involved in curriculum design Students develop digital capabilities and confidence mainly in the context of their courses of study. They are more likely to adopt digital practices that are clearly relevant to the course they have chosen and the life chances that interest them. On leaving further or higher education, graduates will need more than a good general level of digital literacy: they will need a repertoire of specialised skills suited to their choice of career and their subject specialism. They will also need an appropriate awareness of digital developments and issues All of these make it important that relevant digital experiences and activities are embedded into the curriculum. The following resources are designed to help teaching staff - and other professionals involved in curriculum design and review - to think about current practice in the curriculum and to design appropriate new opportunities.

Great Blooms Taxonomy Apps for Both Android and Web 2.0 Just a few days ago I posted a comprehensive list of educational iPad apps organized into awesome charts that teachers can print out and use separately. Today, however, I will be sharing with you another set of great charts covering Bloom's Taxonomy apps for both Android and Web 2.0. This work was done by Kathy from Shrock Guide.

Design with Intent (introducing behavioural heuristics) EDIT (April 2013): An article based on the ideas in this post has now been published in the International Journal of Design – which is open-access, so it’s free to read/share. The article refines some of the ideas in this post, using elements from CarbonCulture as examples, and linking it all to concepts from human factors, cybernetics and other fields. There are lots of models of human behaviour, and as the design of systems becomes increasingly focused on people, modelling behaviour has become more important for designers. As Jon Froehlich, Leah Findlater and James Landay note, “even if it is not explicitly recognised, designers [necessarily] approach a problem with some model of human behaviour”, and, of course, “all models are wrong, but some are useful”. One of the points of the DwI toolkit (post-rationalised) was to try to give designers a few different models of human behaviour relevant to different situations, via pattern-like examples.

How To Cite A Tweet The MLA has acknowledged Twitter’s existence. In case you missed this back in March, twitter, the plucky social media network with much of Facebook’s reach but none of its self-adoration, received a vote of confidence from an unlikely source: the Modern Language Association. Long an indirect but potent tool of torture in English classrooms and University campuses everywhere, the MLA (and other cohorts, including APA and Chicago) released a format for quoting tweets in formal writing. Teachers eat their young Teachers eat their young and education systems encourage them to do so. Too often beginning teachers are assigned too many courses with too many students and provided too little support. As a first year teacher, I was assigned five language arts classes at three different grade levels. Each class had about 30 students which means I was responsible for teaching about 150 students every day. A teacher who is responsible for more than 100 students in a day isn't really teaching anymore -- they're doing crowd control.

I immediately see the verbs animating, blogging, publishing, wiki-ing, commenting, MODERATING, collaborating, networking, and tagging from the higher end. Now, to carry it one step further...what products do you think of for each of the key terms? by intel_engage Apr 24
