Love this! This is a great tool to share with ignorant teachers who are only 1 step ahead of their students.  As NYS rolls-out the research initiative, this will help us triage poor online habits.   And...if a student uses databases, it makes this a little easier.

New Bloom's Taxonomy Sheet with Over 80 Web Tools to Try Out

New Bloom's Taxonomy Sheet with Over 80 Web Tools to Try Out | Information Literacy & Digital Literacy | Scoop.it
Bloom's Taxonomy Tools is a Google document created by NJ superintendent Scott Rocco and it features a list of 89 web tools and mobile apps that correspond with every thinking level of Bloom's taxonomy. This work is a collective effort from different teachers and educators who have come together and crowdsourced ideas and tools to help teachers make the best of  Bloom's digital taxonomy in their instruction. As you can see below, the document features five columns: one for the name of the app, the other specifies the level of Bloom's taxonomy the app addresses, the third column is for links of the apps, the fourth  is on what the app does and the last one captures some ideas on how the app can be used. I invite you to have a look and contribute with an app or tool to the list. Enjoy

To be ready for college, workforce training and life in a technological society, students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas, to conduct original research in order to answer questions or solve problems, and to analyze and create a high volume and extensive range of print and non-print texts in media forms old and new. Source
