Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy Our Bloom's Taxonomy section here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning is growing richer in materials and resources. I am so grateful to everyone of you for generously contributing with your ideas and links. I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill. I will let you have a look at this awesome revised taxonomy poster and looking forward to your comments and feedback.
Models -- Instructional Design The Taxonomy Table -- Faculty Resources -- OSU Extended Campus -- Oregon State University How to Write Objectives Adapted from A Taxonomy for Learning, Teaching, and Assessing: A Revision of Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational Objectives. Lorin W. To dispell the confusion between the means and ends of instruction, contemplate these definitions: Ends Objectives describe intended results, outcomes, and changes. Means Instructional activities, such as reading a textbook, listening to lectures, conducting surveys, and observing field work, are means by which objectives are achieved. For an objective or outcome to be measurable, learning a fact, concept, or procedure is implied. Examples taken from OSU Extended Campus distance courses are attached to each category in the Cognitive Process Dimension and the Knowledge Dimension in the taxonomy table below. For consultation regarding writing objectives and activities for distance courses, please contact: Dianna Fisher, Director of Project Development & Training Office: (541) 737-8658 Cell: (541) 230-4029 Extended Campus Oregon State University
Blooms, SAMR & the 3 C's - iSupport All the apps you’ll ever need As I prepared for an upcoming presentation at a local University I unloaded my test iPad of all its applications and created a new iPad, complete only with apps which I use at school every week. This iPad would become my “essentials” iPad, strategically and efficiently full of apps I wholly recommend to every educator I meet. I went through the apps and I developed a list, indicating the apps purpose. I found I had many educational gaming type apps (gamification of learning) which fitted into the Consumption category. Today I chose to focus on these 3 “C’s” activities, and it was clear that they could be easily aligned to Blooms Taxonomy objectives. When you are considering your teaching tool kit, consider a concise balance between these apps. Which apps are you consuming (researching, learning specific facts) with? As you get comfortable with this process and the apps you are using, try it again.
La “nuova vita” della Tassonomia di Bloom Clicca per ingrandire. Con il termine tassonomia (dalle parole greche taxis = ordine e nomos = regola) si intende sia la pratica classificatoria effettuata secondo una serie gerarchica, sia la scienza che si occupa dei modi di classificazione. La classificazione tassonomica è la descrizione e la collocazione in ordine di importanza o di precedenza di entità appartenenti ad un sistema oggetto di analisi. Concetti, oggetti ed esseri viventi, eventi e luoghi possono dunque essere classificati seguendo uno schema tassonomico. Una delle tassonomie più famose in ambito didattico, quella proposta da Benjamin S. La revisione della Tassonomia di Bloom sviluppata da Anderson e Krathwohl nel 2001. Entrambe le versioni della Tassonomia di Bloom sono state utilizzate per classificare risorse didattiche sul web, apprendimento in rete o attraverso strumenti e sussidi digitali, app per tablet e altro ancora. Di seguito i link ad articoli e pagine web che affrontano questa tematica.
A New Wonderful Wheel on SAMR and Bloom's Digital Taxonomy The buzz that the Modern Taxonomy Wheel generated over the last couple of weeks has not yet died out and now we have a new updated wheel from the same guy Allan Carrington. We love Allan's work and we find it really interesting. His wheels come along in such a visually attractive way summarizing most of the apps and web tools we have been sharing here with you. If you already had a chance to have a look at the previous wheel and compare it with this new one you will notice that Allan has brought about some new updates to the new wheel. There is now a particular shared focus on both SAMR model and Bloom's digital taxonomy to help teachers better leverage technology in their teaching. If you are not familiar with what SAMR is all about, please read this post. Now, Click on this LINK to get the poster as PDF.
Toulmin Model Stephen Toulmin, originally a British logician, is now a professor at USC. He became frustrated with the inability of formal logic to explain everyday arguments, which prompted him to develop his own model of practical reasoning. The first triad of his model consists of three basic elements: A claim is the point an arguer is trying to make. The claim answers the question, "So what is your point?" example: "You should send a birthday card to Mimi, because she sent you one on your birthday." example: "I drove last time, so this time it is your turn to drive." fact: claims which focus on empirically verifiable phenomena judgment/value: claims involving opinions, attitudes, and subjective evaluations of things policy: claims advocating courses of action that should be undertaken Grounds refers to the proof or evidence an arguer offers. Grounds can consist of statistics, quotations, reports, findings, physical evidence, or various forms of reasoning. example: "It looks like rain.
New Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Poster for Teachers November 29, 2016 After posting about Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Verbs we received a number of emails from teachers inquiring about iPad apps aligned with this taxonomy. The Bloom's Digital Taxonomy Cheat sheet we posted awhile ago does feature a collection of educational apps for both iOS and Android (and the web), however, we went ahead and created this visual incorporating some of what we think are the best apps and tools aligned with each of the thinking levels of Bloom's digital taxonomy. Of course our selection is subjective and based entirely on our previous reviews of these apps and we are very much aware that there are several other great web tools and apps that can fit in this pyramid but due to practical limitations we only featured representative samples in each category. This poster is available for free download in PDF format from this link.
Two Wonderful Bloom's Taxonomy Paint Palette for Teachers Kelly from iLearntechnology has just posted this wonderful and creative work. These are two Blooms Taxonomy palettes that visually explain the learning process associated with this taxonomy. Kelly purposefully designed these palettes to contain different colours because as he argued that learning is also colourful and is therefore composed of many colours. Each learner has his/ her own colour and each colour has is own importance. I think the same can be said of learning. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. source: ilearntechnology
