Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

 

Bloom’s Taxonomy can be a powerful tool to transform teaching and learning.

 

By design, it focuses attention away from content and instruction, and instead emphasizes the “cognitive events” in the mind of a child. And this is no small change.

 

For decades, education reform has been focused on curriculum, assessment, instruction, and more recently standards, and data, with these efforts only bleeding over into how students think briefly, and by chance.

 

This means that the focus of finite teacher and school resources are not on promoting thinking and understanding, but rather what kinds of things students are going to be thinking about and how they’ll prove they understand them.

4 Good iPad Apps for Learners with Dyslexia - Educator's Technology  | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Today’s post features some very good iPad apps to use with your dyslexic learners. The first app helps students understand dyslexia through a video comic and subsequent quiz. The second app is a detector that allows you to detect different types of learning difficulties including dyslexia. The third app provides learners with a variety of engaging games to help them ‘assess working memory, phonological awareness, processing speed, visual memory, auditory memory and sequencing skills.’ The last app is a Dyslexic dictionary for explaining unknown terms.

GRAPH: Where Do US Teacher Salaries Really Go the Furthest? - EdSurge News | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"Want to make your teacher salary go as far as possible? Go Midwest, young Padawan. And stay far, far away from Hawaii.

"The great state of Michigan tops the list of states where teachers can enjoy the highest average salary—adjusted for cost of living. That adjustment is important, because as any resident of the San Francisco Bay Area who have friends elsewhere (like this correspondent) can tell you, a dollar does not go equally far everywhere in the United States.

Illinois, Pennsylvania, Wyoming and Ohio round out the top five states. Teacher salaries go the least far in Hawaii, South Dakota, and Maine."

The Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology

Our Mission is not to simply populate the STEM pipeline with more women of color. Rather we seek to provide institutions, students, leaders, corporations, and organizations the skills and resources to change the pipeline to be more equitable for more underrepresented women. Over a 3-5 year timespan, the Collaborative will engage in a series of three interdependent strategies that advocate for girls and women of color in STEM at each tier of the pipeline, specifically: Knowledge amplification: Providing valid and reliable data that can be put into immediate practice in p-20 education settings, and disseminating partner research and best practices around advocating for girls and women of color in STEM. Networking resources: Providing a pool of talented students and faculty, while increasing the availability of opportunities for girls and women of color to enter and persist in STEM postsecondary programs and beyond. Scaling best practices: Supporting bold pipeline programs that funnel girls and women of color from community colleges into 4-year universities.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:
The National STEM Collaborative Arizona State University’s Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology formed The National STEM Collaborative (NSTEMC) as a consortium of higher education institutions and non-profit partners to scale research-based best skills and knowledge, resources and practices on access, completion, and workforce development for women of color in STEM. The Collaborative and plan of work are important because African American and Latina adolescent girls express more interest in STEM careers than their White counterparts; yet, relatively fewer enter and persist in STEM majors and in the workforce. According to the National Science Foundation (2012, 2013), minority women comprise fewer than 1 in 10 employed scientists and engineers with only 5 percent of Asian women, 5 percent of African American women, less than 1 percent of Native American women, and 2 percent of Hispanic women represented in the science and engineering labor force in the U.S. This compares poorly with women as a whole, which made up 28 perc

Fairy Tales and Globalisation: Bringing Up the Young in the Values and Virtues of Great Civilisations

Fairy Tales and Globalisation: Bringing Up the Young in the Values and Virtues of Great Civilisations | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Globalisation affects children’s values, self-images and world outlook through targeted marketing of fairy tales, games and assorted media products. This article analyses these effects and proposes a number of measures to counteract them. Pro-active, grassroots approaches on the part of educators, writers, and artists should help produce specially designed storybooks, animated cartoons, and online games that would introduce the young to a variety of cultures, including aboriginal cultures, without, at the same time ‘Hollywoodising’ them. These approaches should be positive and affirmative rather that fear mongering and alarming.

Particular attention should be given to the difficult task of providing models of behaviour for boys, helping them reach maturity and inner harmony. Educators, above all parents, must critically discuss the values of competitiveness and egoism with their children in spite of the messages broadcast by corporate media.

Empowerment of parents is posited as the main motive force of demands to change educational policies and to circumscribe the scope of advertisement targeting children. Parents must promote sensitivity to their cultural heritage, read bedtime stories, and otherwise be there for their offspring. Children should also be given a chance to hear stories that have shaped their ancestors’ culture for generations. Children should acquire what rightly belongs to them: their cultural heritage.This involvement should produce a generation freed from the belief, actively promoted by business interests, that neoliberal globalisation is natural and inevitable. They should become citizens in spite of the massive globalised efforts to reduce them to consumers. This, in turn, should prompt national governments to resume their duty as protectors of children from undue commercial interests and from the values that underlie such interests. But for this to happen, the change has to come from below.

Create-your-own computer kit opens new tech opportunities for kids.

 

Kano opens up the world of physical computing to kids. As computers have become more affordable and reliable, fewer people are learning what is going on inside them. Kano aims to change the way kids see computers through creating kits with all the pieces necessary to build a fully-functional computer. The Kano approach to learning follows three guiding principles: (1) simple steps, (2) storytelling, and (3) physical computing. After tying all these principles together, the overarching goal is to create a sense of play.

Students Say They Are Not as Tech Savvy as Educators Assume - EdSurge News

Students Say They Are Not as Tech Savvy as Educators Assume - EdSurge News | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"A love for avocado lattes and Snapchat filters are just a few of the stereotypes following Millennials these days. But students are now pushing back on these generational generalizations, noting that assumptions regarding their attitudes, hobbies, and abilities are hurting them academically. One of the biggest misconceptions students at last week’s New Media Consortium’s Summer Conference (NMC) brought up was the idea that millennials are digital natives.

"Most people have heard this story before: the eight-year-old son teaching his forty-year-old dad how to use some new device or app. However, despite being an allegory of our times, a lot has been said off-the-record about misconceptions regarding students’ technological abilities. In an interview with EdSurge, Alexandra Pickett, the Director of New York State University’s Center for Online Teaching Excellence, noted that many of her students know how to use online platforms such as Twitter and Facebook for fun, but have no idea how to leverage them for academic and professional use. It’s a point the students at NMC echoed."

how long we can focus on something is determined by our energy levels on any given day, how distracting our immediate environment is, how motivated we are to learn about the topic, how it’s presented to us, and so on.

Hip-Hop Coding: Exploring the Connections Between Computational Thinking and Hip-Hop Culture

Hip-Hop Coding: Exploring the Connections Between Computational Thinking and Hip-Hop Culture | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Since its 1970s Bronx origins, hip-hop culture has been driven by youth and the appropriation of technologies and cultural materials for creative expression. 


Although terms such as looping, remixing, and sequencing are common to the language of both hip-hop production and coding, the relationships between these two techno-cultural worlds have largely remained unexamined. One of the highlights of the Hip-Hop and Scratch Coding Summit that took place last month in Cleveland, Ohio was precisely the exploration of those relationships through a series of hands-on activities and conversations with teachers, after-school facilitators, librarians, and hip-hop educators from all over the U.S.

Today, the blackboard has become a whiteboard; chalk has become a magic marker; the slates that students used have been replaced by notebooks; and classes have sometimes gotten smaller.

But the methods are essentially the same—with the teacher dictating learning.
