Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice

Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | Creativity and Art Education | Scoop.it
I think the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy is wrong. I agree that the taxonomy accurately classifies various types of cognitive thinking skills. It certainly identifies the different levels of complexity. But its organizing framework is dead wrong.

Brittany Anne Garcia's curator insight, March 16, 2013 5:55 PM

I have reviwed what they have said and think that this would be a great idea when trying to teach kids. Because it has color in the wheel i feel that has more of a connection with kids because they are attracted to color. I think this a great idea and i do plan on using this in my classroom when i start teaching. You could use this idea for a bunch of things.
