Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy

Bloom’s Taxonomy provides a framework for developing strong learning objectives. However, when it was created in 1956 when eLearning didn’t exist, it was intended for in-class style training. How can you adapt it to create strong learning objectives through DIGITAL TECHNOLOGYAs we all know Bloom’s taxonomy is a toolbox that teachers or students can use to classify and organize learning objectives.The purpose of this lecture is to inform you of how to use technology and digital tools to facilitate student learning experiences and outcomes.

 It aims, To expand upon the skills associated with each level as technology becomes a more ingrained essential part of learning.At the point of researching on Monday.

I find out we have all the tools in our hand.

Meaning all what we are going to be exploring in today’s class is possible to practice and adopt if you are flexible.Research indicates that “Today’s students, regardless of demographics, have shown an interest in digital opportunities to learn, and the range of WEB OR MOBILE tools that make collaboration, innovation, and individual exploration possible is incredible.” 

  Practitioners within the field of education have thought of unique ways to connect digital tools with the framework of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy, which has led to the emergence of a Digital Bloom’s TaxonomyIn this new Bloom’s Taxonomy, knowledge is the basis of the six cognitive processes: remember, understand, apply, analyze, evaluate, and create.

The authors of the new framework also identified different types of knowledge used in cognition: factual knowledge, conceptual knowledge, procedural knowledge, and metacognitive knowledge.In 2001, a group of cognitive psychologists, curriculum theorists, instructional researchers, and testing and assessment specialists joined forces to publish A Taxonomy for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment, a revised version of Bloom’s Taxonomy.

Action words to describe the cognitive processes thinkers encounter with knowledge were incorporated, rather than the nouns that were used as descriptors for the original categories.Its most popular version is based on the cognitive domain and assumes that learning should be structured from easy to difficult in the following 6 steps:

  1. Remember
  2. Understand
  3. Apply
  4. Analyze
  5. Evaluate
    6. Create
    The lower-order thinking skills remain at the base of the pyramid with the higher-order skills at the pinnacle.

To learn more about the new Bloom’s say 👋👋👋👋👋👋👋👋👋On level two we learn to understand.

We begin to decode information and learn that a lemon is yellow when its ripe to eat, and if we take a bite, that it’s really super sour.

We also understand that lemons love sunshine and that they contain lots of vitamin C, which is a great natural antioxidant that keeps us healthy.

Now as we really understand a lemon, we can work with it.
On the third level we apply what we know. We’ve understood that while lemons are sour, they are also a great provider of vitamin C.On the first level we learn to remember.

There is just rote memorization and recollection of facts without much understanding.

For example, if we learn about lemons, we want to remember the name, shape, colour, size and that they are sour. Once we memorized these essentially meaningless facts, we move to the second level of learning.To apply this knowledge in a meaningful way.
We could boil a lemon into hot water and add some honey. Then serve this hot lemon to our sick sister, whos in need of a treatment.Now we are ready evaluate. We analyze, critique and compare. To evaluate our lemon as a good source of vitamin, we compare it to other sources, such as oranges and supplements.

We look at the following properties: vitamin levels, affordability, taste, and packaging waste.

If we evaluate our thoughts critically and without bias, we learn where the lemons score high and where others score higher.

Hope you are following 🙂😊😀☺🙏🤗🙂On the fourth level, we learn to analyze.

This involves examining and breaking down information into components, determining how the parts relate to one another, and finding evidence to support generalizations.

We study the lemon flesh, examine the skin and look at levels of vitamins. We conclude that we can eat everything inside, while the skin taste bitter and contains traces of toxic pesticides. It ought not to be consumed.Now after we have learned, understood, applied, analyzed and evaluated, we are ready to create.

As we now really understand lemons, also in comparison to similar things, we can formulate a plan to create our own natural lemonade.

Its now easy to can come up with a cute shop design, a good name sweet lemonsand a good slogan natural healthy yummy. 😊Well I try working with this method step by step but at the end you find it time consuming.

What I am saying in essence is that the time frame allocated for each subject and topic doesn’t give room for Bloom taxonomy approach

From platform 2

Yes. I use BLOOM’S TAXONOMY.

I teach using this method after I did some research on BLOOM’S TAXONOMY.

It helps to produce learners in cognitive development.
Once a child can recall what is been taught that is knowledge.

The child been able to comprehend shows that he or she understands what is been taught.

Allow the child to analyze and then apply what he/she have learnt.

From there, he will be able to make choices( evaluate)
And then create original content from what he/ she learnt .

From platform 26

Hmm,
No in my school

I do sometimes
It will be very effective
An independent learner

From platform 16Before I continue let me ask

DO YOU FOLLOW THIS METHOD IN YOUR SCHOOL?

DO YOU TEACH WITH THIS PROCESS PERSONALLY AS A TEACHER?

HOW EFFECTIVE DO YOU THINK THIS PROCESS WILL BE ACHIEVE IN YOUR ORGANISATION?

WHAT TYPE OF LEARNER WILL YOU PRODUCE WITH THIS PROCESS?

AWAITING YOUR RESPONSE BEFORE I CONTINUEThis is actually the methodology I adopt in training teachers, parents etc through the ‘ HighScope Active learning approach’. Transformational, life long learning can’t occur if you skip any part. Well done.
