A Bloom's Digital Taxonomy For Evaluating Digital Tasks

A Bloom's Digital Taxonomy For Evaluating Digital Tasks
What makes Bloom’s Taxonomy such a power tool is its flexibility in framing almost anything–which is why you’ve been seeing a lot of it around lately, and will likely continue to. Whether you’re creating a checklist for instructional design, evaluating an assessment, skimming a favorite unit of yours, or using it as a walkthrough instrument to get a feel for the level of student thinking in a classroom, Bloom’s Taxonomy is a powerful tool for any educator at any level. So the following Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy was was especially interesting in how it mashes digital tasks–podcasting, blogging, networking, hacking, bookmarking, social media sharing, and so on, with the stalwart learning tool so graciously delivered by Benjamin Bloom. The result is Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy, from edorigami’s excellent wikispaces site. One Takeaway Thematically, this is a chart version promoting technology in learning–or rather technology-infused learning.

Le numérique et les droits fondamentaux : le rapport du Conseil d'Etat Dans son rapport annuel rendu public le 9 septembre 2014, le Conseil d'Etat fait cinquante propositions pour "mettre le numérique au service des droits individuels et de l'intérêt général". Le sujet est au coeur de l'actualité, alors que le débat en séance publique du projet de loi relatif à la lutte contre le terrorisme doit s'engager le 15 septembre, et qu'une loi sur le numérique est attendue pour janvier 2015. Un instrument et une menace L'un des points positifs du rapport réside dans son approche très équilibrée. Le Conseil d'Etat ne considère pas seulement le numérique à travers le danger qu'il peut représenter pour les libertés, en particulier le droit à la sûreté et le droit au respect de la vie privée. Le rapport se veut didactique. La neutralité du net En témoigne l'analyse que fait le Conseil d'Etat du principe de neutralité du net. Un droit à l'autodétermination informationnelle Le Conseil d'Etat et l'affaire Snowden

The Simpsons' secret formula: it's written by maths geeks | Television & radio | The Observer Without doubt, the most mathematically sophisticated television show in the history of primetime broadcasting is The Simpsons. This is not a figment of my deranged mind, which admittedly is obsessed with both The Simpsons and mathematics, but rather it is a concrete claim backed up in a series of remarkable episodes. The first proper episode of the series in 1989 contained numerous mathematical references (including a joke about calculus), while the infamous "Treehouse of Horror VI" episode presents the most intense five minutes of mathematics ever broadcast to a mass audience. These examples are just the tip of the iceberg, because the show's writing team includes several mathematical heavyweights. When they moved from academia to Fox Studios, these writers retained their passion for numbers and they have secretly planted mathematical references in dozens of episodes. The 2006 episode "Marge and Homer Turn a Couple Play", for example, contains a triple dose of secret mathematics.

How Do Tech Tools Affect the Way Students Write? For many current middle and high school students, writing takes shape in all kinds of forms. They send texts, write on social media sites, update their own blogs, and of course, write for school assignments. This fluid use of writing for both personal and school work is being fueled by technology, and a Pew Research report released today showed just how significant an effect technology has on how students write. The 2,462 educators surveyed, who were either Advanced Placement teachers or National Writing Project teachers, largely agreed that technology positively impacts students with their writing, personal expression, and creativity, and facilitates collaboration. The ability to share work with a wider audience beyond the classroom is particularly engaging, with 96 percent of teachers responding that digital technologies make it more possible. “In my experience the extended audience provided by online writing encourages students to be more deliberate and thoughtful.” Related

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.

5 Uses of Augmented Reality in Education Last week I mentioned augmented reality during a presentation and I could tell from the looks on some people's faces that augmented reality was a new thing to them. That's not uncommon. Sometimes when people hear "augmented reality" their minds drift to some vision of a science fiction world. Here are five potential uses of augmented reality in education today. Create 3D, augmented reality stories with ZooBurst. The Getty Museum offers a neat way to view art through augmented reality. Fetch!

Listening To Reading in a One iPad Classroom When I speak about using iPads in a primary school classroom, I am often asked about how it would work if I only had one iPad as is the case in many classrooms. This post is the first of what I hope will be several with suggestions as to how to make that work effectively. Sharing the iPad Although my classroom is one to one with iPads, I have many high quality book apps on my own iPad that I did not choose to put on the thirty iPads I have in the Volume Purchase Plan account for the student iPads. Sometimes, I use Apple TV to project my iPad so that all of the students can see it at once on a large screen. Listening to Reading This can work for Internet sites as well as apps. When I use my iPad for my students to listen, I put the iPad onto our DEWEY document camera stand. One iPad, five students listening to high quality reading.

249 Blooms taxonomi verb till kritiskt tänkande Bloom’s Taxonomy’s verbs–also know as power verbs or thinking verbs–are extraordinarily powerful instructional planning tools. In fact, next to the concept of backwards-design and power standards, they are likely the most useful tool a teacher-as-learning-designer has access to. Why? They can be used for curriculum mapping, assessment design, lesson planning, personalizing and differentiating learning, and almost any other “thing” a teacher–or student–has to do. For example, if a standard asks students to infer and demonstrate an author’s position using evidence from the text, there’s a lot built into that kind of task. Though the chart below reads left to right, it’s ideal to imagine it as a kind of incline, with Knowledge at the bottom, and Create at the top. 249 Bloom’s Taxonomy Verbs For Critical Thinking

Teach Kids To Be Their Own Internet Filters ” credit=”flickingerbrad/Flickr It’s becoming less and less effective to block students from websites. When Los Angeles Unified rolled out its one-to-one iPad program, administrators expected to be able to control how students used them both in school and at home. Students live in an information-saturated world. “If we are not teaching the kids to use the web as a vehicle for enhancing learning and teaching them to be the filter, that’s a dereliction of duty.” A key to making sure good practices stick is to teach research skills when kids need them. [RELATED READING: Building Good Search Skills: What Students Need to Know] While they’re learning to be good researchers, students will also be solidifying key Common Core competencies, like the ability to integrate knowledge, identify truthful reasoning, and use evidence to make a point. Identifying features: maps, graphs, documents, reprints etc.Scope: Is the source broad like an encyclopedia entry or does it go deeply into a subject? Related

The New Bloom’s It’s difficult to think about doing creative, authentic projects with students when the school is consumed with test prep fever and the state tests are just a week away. Testing has, indeed, had a tremendous impact on curriculum and instruction in our schools. While tests give us benchmark data on where students are with knowledge and skill development, they often fall short of helping students develop the higher level thinking skills that 21st century students need for a technological workplace. Creative projects, on the other hand, almost always engage students in analytical and evaluative thinking. They are not about giving the right answer; rather, they are all about extending information to find solutions or develop new ideas. Over 50 years ago, Benjamin Bloom and his colleagues developed a framework for determining the extent to which objectives and activities engaged students in higher-level thinking.
