Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"So much have been written about Bloom’s taxonomy; one click in a search engine will flood your page with hundreds of articles all of which revolve around this taxonomy. Only few are those who have tried to customize it to fit in the 21st century educational paradigm. As a fan of Bloom’s pedagogy and being a classroom practitioner, I always look for new ways to improve my learning and teaching, and honestly speaking , if you are a teacher/ educator and still do not understand Bloom’s taxonomy then you are missing out on a great educational resource.


The following article is a summary and a fruit of my long painstaking research in the field of Bloom’s taxonomy. The purpose is to help teachers grow professionally and provide them with a solid informational background on how to better understand and apply Bloom’s taxonomy in classrooms (or for Distance Learning - reviewer comment) in the light of the new technological advances and innovations." from Source: http://www.educatorstechnology.com/

ghbrett's insight:

This blog post is loaded with infographics, charts, links, and other good information to help educators and trainers who are using or interested in Bloom's Taxonomy. This is a very useful resource. Note that the writer has written this as a classroom teacher. However, this reviewer believes that the information applies to Distance Learning as well.

Tinkering with John Seely Brown

"Tinkering with John Seely Brown - an interview

"Power of Play
> The construct most overlooked by the 21st century is the power and importance of play. How do I take an idea and play with it, tinker with it, own it?

> You need to learn that not everything works, most things don’t. If the first thing that happens to you when something doesn’t work is that it frightens you, then you’re not going to be very willing to embrace change BUT

> if you realize that things don’t work (which is almost always) you can figure out how to tinker with things and absorb what happens. Often when you are tinkering it doesn’t make perfect logic sense, it’s something you begin to feel in your hands as much as your mind.

> Tinkering brings thoughts and action together in very powerful, magic ways." from source: http://learnstreaming.com/

ghbrett's curator insight, February 6, 2013 1:20 PM

The concept of playing or tinkering with an idea is an important one. There are often instances where resources are in short supply and one has to figure out how to make do. For me my tool kit included duct tape and coat hangers to keep an old car running. Fourth gear was held in place with a coat hanger bent to fit. Adults may refer to this concept as problem solving, day dreaming, or getting the job done. John Seely Brown is a great speaker and this is an interesting interview worth watching.
