Bloom’s Taxonomy for the Digital Age – Integrating Technology

Integrating technology into curriculum has been a popular topic in the blogosphere for some time now.  I’m starting to find more and more concrete, applicable ideas that have the potential to be easily integrated – thank goodness for collaboration.  I feel like we’re getting somewhere.

Check this out –    Andrew Churches’  “Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy v.2.12“.

  • He brilliantly updates the 7 scaffolded levels with web-based skills such as searching, bookmarking, blogging, and collaboration and includes rubrics and exemplars of performance.
  • He’s actually been talking about this for almost two years.  Here, he offers digital alternatives for normal classroom activities, along with tools that can easily be used.

Another cool find – Stacy Baker’s blog on how she’s using technology in her Biology class.

  • My favorite find here, so far, is this amazing rubric that she has her students post on their blog or wiki page, where they have to justify their mastery of different 21st century skills – searching, publishing, reaching out to experts and more (this is the ideal performance).  Here’s the blank version that they have to fill out.

  1. Great find. Both the taxonomy and the rubric. I feel like half of the battle is getting teachers to go beyond the old Bloom’s. This is will be a big help.

  2. As long as people use taxonomies as they are intended – descriptive and not prescriptive. – now I just have to make sure I track this comment 😉

    I absolutely agree, Harold.
    I remember my first year teaching, really using Bloom’s to reflect on my lessons and assessments – great way to push both you *and* them.

    It seems like by integrating blogs and other web 2.0 tools, it’s just easier to get to those higher levels, to dig deeper into the material because the students will be so much more engaged, which will always be a good thing. If only I’d been aware of these tools while still in the classroom….

  4. Tracking with delicious doesn’t tell me if there’s a new comment, but since this is a WordPress blog, I get notified through my WP account. Gotta love the messy Web.

  5. I ρreciusely wanted to thank you so much yet again. I’m not certain the things that I couⅼd possibly
    havе followеd without the entire pointers contгibuted by you oνer my question. Completely was an absolute challenging issue in my opinion, however , observing the very specialised manner you solved it forced me to jump
    over cοntentment. Iam just grateful for your information and expect you recognize what an amazing job that you’re undertaking teaching
    people using your blog pоst. I ɑm sure you have never encountered alⅼ of us.
