I researched (and procrastinated) I started developing a running list of different ways Pinterest could be tied back in with Bloom’s taxonomy, which is my go-to for aligning technology tools with educational standards.
This is an update to Bloom's Revised Taxonomy which attempts to account for the new behaviours and actions emerging as technology advances and becomes more ubiquitous. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy describes many traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions, but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with Web 2.0 technologies, infowhelm (the exponential growth in information), increasing ubiquitous personal technologies or cloud computing.
I have produced an interactive Bloom’s revised digital taxonomy wheel and the almost overlapping knowledge Dimensions. Bloom’s taxonomy has been used extensively in the education sector. The 2001 update of Bloom’s taxonomy for the 21century is depicted in this interactive wheel. Almost overlapping, are the four knowledge domains.
Many teachers use Bloom's Taxonomy and Bloom's Revised Taxonomy in developing and structuring their teaching & learning experiences. Bloom's Digital taxonomy is an attempt to marry Bloom's revised taxonomy and the key verbs to digital approaches and tools.
