Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice

Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | iEduc | Scoop.it

By Shelley Wright

 

"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.

 

"Many teachers in many classrooms spend the majority of their time in the basement of the taxonomy, never really addressing or developing the higher order thinking skills that kids need to develop. We end up with rote and boring classrooms. Rote and boring curriculum. Much of today’s standardized testing rigorously tests the basement, further anchoring the focus of learning at the bottom steps, which is not beneficial for our students.

 

"I dislike the pyramid because it creates the impression that there is a scarcity of creativity — only those who can traverse the bottom levels and reach the summit can be creative. And while this may be how it plays out in many schools, it’s not due to any shortage of creative potential on the part of our students.

 

"I think the narrowing pyramid also posits that our students need a lot more focus on factual knowledge than creativity, or analyzing, or evaluating and applying what they’ve learned. And in a Google-world, it’s just not true.

Here’s what I propose. In the 21st century, we flip Bloom’s taxonomy. Rather than starting with knowledge, we start with creating, and eventually discern the knowledge that we need from it.

Jim Lerman's curator insight, January 3, 2013 9:40 AM

I think Wright has a good point here, albeit a bit overemphasized in her intro. Indeed, we do not always need to start with Remembering in an instructional sequence. From the beginning, advocates of Bloom's conceptual framework (at least those I encountered), urged a balance of objectives, from diverse levels, in any learning sequence. The sequencing of the levels in the learning ought to be designed with the overall intended outcomes in mind.

 

Ultimately, I think variety is the spice of learning. In order to keep instruction engaging, units should have varying structures. In order to sustain interest, we don't want our approaches to get stale. Starting with Creating once in a while, or even often, can be a great idea. But, if it's overused, it too can become boring.

 

Also to be remembered is that the Cognitive domain is only one of three domains described by Bloom. The other are the Affective and the Psychomotor. We are suffering from an overemphasis on the Cognitive and underemphasize the Affective and Psychomotor to our, and our students', disadvantage.

Ten Simple Rules of Live Tweeting at Scientific Conferences

Ten Simple Rules of Live Tweeting at Scientific Conferences | iEduc | Scoop.it
The power of mobile communications has increased dramatically in recent years such that these devices (smartphone or tablet computer) can be used productively to do science [1]. The software applications installed on them do not necessarily have to be specialized to be useful for science, e.g., Evernote can be used as an electronic lab notebook [2]. Twitter is a popular microblogging platform famously limited to messages of up to 140 characters [3] and represents a simple way to express what's on your mind to a global audience of followers. Twitter has useful real-world scientific applications, such as in disease surveillance enabling the tracking of disease pandemics [4]–[6], as well as the capacity to be used for the communication of science itself [7]. Like other professionals, scientists are increasingly tweeting about their own research and the work of colleagues and sharing links to scholarly publications, laboratory results, and related scientific content such as molecular structures [8]. Twitter can additionally serve as a catalyst in the development of scientific tools, with at least one mobile app for science coming directly out of a tweet at a scientific conference [9].

The free version only allows public mindmaps/brainstorms, so if you are in a school setting and don't want student work to be shared, this might not be the right tool. The professional version that allows you to make the maps private is a steep $49 a month.

Learning professionals often mistake learning metrics for business metrics. Attendance rates and ROI are great indicators of a training program’s internal impacts, but often are irrelevant to an organization’s competitive goals. Koreen Pagano, director of enterprise product management at lynda.com, explains how to compile and share metrics that expose greater value.
After this session, you will be able to:
