Blooms Digital Web Tools

Blooms Digital Web Tools | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

description by Edudemic

 

"Designed with the educator in mind this website looks at the array of digital tools and cross references them to the new Bloom action verbs. The tools were selected based on several criteria. First, they had to be free or at least offer a free version as a minimum package. Second, they had to work within our district’s filtering system. Third, they had to be educationally sound and not littered with inappropriate ads.

 

"Easily navigated, this website provides the experiences associated with each Bloom’s level. Once an educator selects a tool he or she is directed to subsequent page which offers the user a more detailed description of the tool along with additional tools that match the same criteria. In some cases, pdf documents are included that provide directions, additional ideas, student/teacher examples, and additional navigational links. A toolbar on the left allows the user to select a tag such as blogging, podcasting, cartoons, etc. This tag instantly takes the user to the Bloom’s category under which the link is housed."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

An outstanding piece of work, curating a tremendous amount of resources and information is a most effect manner. Kudos to creators Kathy Beck and Karen Van Vliet.

 

Just a reminder that we often forget Bloom said their are 3 domains for learning. What's illustrated and described here, and most often referenced by educators, is the Cognitive Domain. The other two, Affective and Psychomotor, are too often forgetten or overlooked.

 

Bloom said there needs to be a balance among the three. My observation does not minimize the excellence of Beck and Van Vliet's work.

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching

Why new technologies could never replace great teaching | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
Technology in education gets plenty of hype, but let's not forget the importance of teaching and learning, says Pamela Wright

 

So where do I stand as an educator, as a leader in education? The centre point of my passion is a philosophy that I instil into my staff, into the school and into every school I support. It is the child – first and foremost.

 

Teachers don't simply teach concepts and skills. Any new technology can do that.

 

Good teachers inspire our young people to be lifelong learners, creating a culture of independent enquiry with their enthusiasm and passion. I know this because I see it every day. Good teachers have the skills to know exactly how to get the best out of each and every young person in their care.

Look down to the appendix to see the list of statements they used. -Lon

LLZ Uni Halle's curator insight, December 18, 2013 2:26 AM

"...Results showed that on average, teachers believed 49% of the neuromyths, particularly myths related to commercialized educational programs. Around 70% of the general knowledge statements were answered correctly. Teachers who read popular science magazines achieved higher scores on general knowledge questions. More general knowledge also predicted an increased belief in neuromyths. These findings suggest that teachers who are enthusiastic about the possible application of neuroscience findings in the classroom find it difficult to distinguish pseudoscience from scientific facts. .."

On Visual Thinking Puzzles

On Visual Thinking Puzzles | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

"Are you a visual thinker? Take the test.

 

Visual thinking is the term used commonly in psychology to refer to the type of thinking that results from perceiving or processing visual stimuli, forms, or patterns. Such thinking is a major function of the right hemisphere of the brain, also known (logically enough) as the "visual hemisphere."

 

There are many puzzle genres that entail the use of visual thinking. One involves geometrical figures (triangles, rectangles, etc.) that embed within them a number of similar smaller figures (triangles, rectangles, etc.). The challenge is to identify how many such figures there are in total. The solution strategy calls for visualizing how parts can be assembled to form wholes (a typical right-hemispheric function). Such puzzles are, thus, exercises in "whole-part" thinking. Some people find them to be among the most frustrating of all puzzle types, since it us not unusual to come up with different answers each time one counts the smaller figures one "sees" in the original figure.

 

I am not sure who invented this puzzle genre, nor from what era of puzzle history it emerges. It is clear, however, that the ancient geometers constructed figures and geometrical patterns with smaller figures (triangles, circles, rectangles, ellipses, etc.) embedded in them in order to study general geometrical principles, to derive theorems, to prove propositions, and so on. They also invented puzzles and games that involved whole-part thinking. One of these was Archimedes' loculus-a 14-piece puzzle forming a square from which it was possible to form different figures (animals, plants etc.) by rearranging the pieces. An online version of the game, with instructions in Latin, can be found on the Bibliotheca Augustana website. Visual thinking puzzles (of all types) seem to be perfect models for testing the validity of what has been called "field dependence theory" in psychology-a notion that originated with the Gestalt psychologists in the 1930s and from which we probably got our expression "not seeing the forest for the trees.""
