44 Prompts Merging Reflective Thinking With Bloom's Taxonomy

44 Prompts Merging Reflective Thinking With Bloom's Taxonomy | Art Teachers Rock | Scoop.it

"It’s been four years since I first published my “Taxonomy of Reflection.” My interest in reflective thinking is rooted in a simple but powerful statement by Donald Finkel who wrote that teaching should be thought of as “providing experience, provoking reflection.” (Teaching with Your Mouth Shut)."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 2, 1:17 PM

Here is the list of the top ten "S'cool Tools" for 2013 from EdSurge. Last week I scooped the tools from 11 - 20. Once again there is a range of tools and they are all free. Three are detailed below but you may view information on all ten in the post. Have fun exploring!

* Mathigon is an amazing math resource with videos, slideshows, e-books, apps and more. Resources are available for primary and secondary students.

* Google Treks - Are you looking for lesson plans based on Google Maps? If so check out Google Treks. Lesson plans are across the curriculum and all use Google Maps so the concept of geographic location is involved. If you want to create your own Trek there is a tutorial and a rubric to help you out.

* NuSkool uses "popular culture to enhance learning both inside and outside the classroom." Geared to students in grades 6 - 12 you may search for by grade, subject and genre. Genres include music, film, television, video games, sports, social networking and popular culture. Select your grade level, subject and genre and you will find a choice of lesson plans that include the media, a description of the lesson, procedures and assessments.

Bloom’s Taxonomy Paint Palette

Bloom’s Taxonomy Paint Palette | Art Teachers Rock | Scoop.it

"An article I read this week had me thinking about Bloom’s Taxonomy and what learning really is.  It led to me coming up with a new graphic for Bloom’s Taxonomy, this one a Paint Palette.  I like thinking about Bloom’s in the form of an artist paint palette because each color has equal importance.  For an artist, the greatest beauty comes in the mixing of colors.  Using a multitude of shades and blends on a canvas.  I think the same can be said of learning."

This is a work in progress based on student work at Anastasis Academy. We know that we would like our students to be able to demonstrate their understanding in a variety of ways, but often they find one way and that becomes the only way (from their perspective). In this post Kelly Tenkely describes her experiences with students at Anastasis Academy and how this experience has led her to create this paint palette that will contain two additional components.

Along with this palette you will find a painting that provides "students ideas for different outcomes and evidences of learning" and a component that is still a work in progress, that will "an app and website catalog organized by the same colors so that students can be introduced to the many options they have for the different types of learning and producing." You can see the page with apps in this post that are specific to Create and additional pages with apps will be posted in the future.
