Somebody shared with me this wonderful Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit for Teachers and want you to have a look as well. The image is huge and so can't upload it here but you can use the provided link to access the original version.
The reason why I am sharing this work here is because it provides a new way to think about Bloom's Taxonomy. In Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit, you will be offered with a variety of key words, action verbs, outcomes and questions related to each of the thinking levels in the taxonomy. Here is the link of the original chart, try to zoom it in to make it legible.
The study aims to further define the concept of 'Creative Classrooms' (CCR) and to provide a better understanding of ICT-enabled innovation in Education and Training (E&T) with significant scale and/or impact at system level.
Professional learning that is relevant, collaborative and future focused can have a highly positive impact on teacher quality. Here you will find resources that develop an understanding of effective professional learning as well as access to free online learning modules.
