Bloom Taxonomy

Thanks to David for providing a good site on Bloom Taxonomy on study desk (week 5). From there I get the chance to learn something new from Kathy Schrock’s collection of different uses of Bloom’s taxonomy. She created another types about Bloom Taxonomy. She replaced the triangular shape of Bloom Taxonomy and she came out with a new idea of “interlocking of the cognitive processes” or the “Cogs of Cognition”.  The ability to move among the cognitive levels as needed is essentials to the acquisitions of knowledge (Schrock, 2012).  Basically it means that every level of Bloom Taxonomy is interrelated to one another which included (i) remembering, (ii) understanding, (iii) applying, (iv) analyzing, (v) evaluating and (vi)creating. 


Here is a collection of Bloom’s digital taxonomies that they have discovered to support each of the levels of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy:

1. Ipad Apps

2. Google Apps

3. Web 2.0 Apps

4. Android Apps 

Besides that, I would like to share with you my previous blog post about the “Padagogy Wheel” It offers 62 iPad apps to the wheel, created by, Allan Carrington. You can get more information through “Integrate iPads Into Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy with This ‘Padagogy Wheel’.

Next, Teagan, one of my coursemate from EDC3100 wrote about this Pedagogy Wheel too! She has mentioned that this Pedagogy Wheel is such a great visual resource and reference point to consider with thinking about planning and organising unit or lesson plans and learning experiences. Please read through her blog, and see how she makes the connection between Bloom’s, actions, activities, applications and the SAMR Model.

Hope you enjoy reading my blog.
