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“.
