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.

This page gathers all of the Bloomin' Apps projects in one place!


Each of the images has clickable hotspots and includes suggestions for
iPad, Google, Android, and Web 2.0 applications
to support each of the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.

The use of the triangle shape for Bloomin' apps projects was not used
 to help clear up the misunderstanding that the levels are hierarchical and
the top levels only make up a tiny portion of the cognitive processes.

Using Edmodo is a MUST for me with this. You need a place to host your materials for classes. We as teachers can't trust that junk on YouTube! BUT - I would use Explain Everything over Camtasia. Much, much cheaper and still as useful.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | Education | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.

This would certainly appeal to Bodily/Kinesthetic learners - not to mention those kids that are getting very little exercise in general.

Jennifer Buckley's comment, April 30, 2013 6:47 PM
What a great idea! I think this would help with tons of kids, allowing them to get their wiggles out and focus on instruction
Belinda Garcia's comment, May 7, 2013 9:31 PM
Hey! I read about this somewhere and thought it was a genius idea :)

I try to weave Bloom into every lesson and build to the end of the trimester at the top.

Nancy L Zingrone's curator insight, January 26, 2013 5:51 PM

This is a much better trajectory for the elements in the taxonomy. Creativity is both the pinnacle of what we do and at the heart of what we do.
