The 10-Minute Guide To Bloom's Taxonomy - Edudemic

The 10-Minute Guide To Bloom's Taxonomy - Edudemic | Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies | Scoop.it

Bloom’s Taxonomy is one of the most cited theoretical constructions within education and e-learning. This is well earned since, after its first publication in 1956, the taxonomy has quickly become an important milestone within educational theory.

However there are many professionals within the educational and e-learning fields that have only a vague idea of what the Taxonomy is all about, or that have only met the taxonomy (or some revisited version of these findings) for the Cognitive domain only, leaving the Affective and Psychomotor domains at the margins, if not completely out of the picture.


Via Dennis T OConnor
A/Prof Jon Willis's insight:

The robotic soundtrack is a little irritating, but this is a well-constructed and relatively deep introduction to the taxonomy, including the underlying psychology that drives it.

Bloom's Taxonomy action/capability verbs an excellent resource for teachers creating learning targets.

Aidan Hoyal's curator insight, July 30, 2013 10:26 AM

Great overview -- but it would be so much better if narrated by a human :-)

 

Allan Shaw's curator insight, July 31, 2013 10:57 PM

Great to see the affective and psychomotor getting greater credence and visibility.

Nothing ever changes in the NT. Another clown is in charge of a government department, and can't see his hand in front of his face. This kind brutal, inherent racism is part of the bedrock of NT hospitals, but not every Indigenous patient unfortunately has a media-savvy management team and private nurse to be able to bring these issues to public attention. What is more likely is that there were no trained staff available to perform the procedure at 1am on a Monday morning, and some junior nurse who is working at the Royal for three months while she backpacks around Australia made a bad judgement call that the surgery could wait until someone was rostered on at 8am. Give them an hour to prep the patient, and the surgery got done routinely, but not before the patients condition had seriously deteritorated. To paraphrase the minister, even a cursory look at the case shows that there is some serious understaffing and ineptitude at work, and the fact that it was an Aboriginal patient with a history of alcohol use meant that no urgency was attached to his case. World fame and national treasure-hood notwithstanding.
