Dictation Technology Will Change Writing Instruction

Dictation Technology Will Change Writing Instruction | Internet Resources for Paper-based EFL | Scoop.it

If we look into the not-too-distant future, it appears that -- whether we like it or not -- dictation technologies will have effects on writing instruction. The time has come for us to decide exactly what kind of effects we intend for those to be.

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

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | Internet Resources for Paper-based EFL | 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.

M. Van Amelsvoort's insight:

I really like the questions to ask students provided for each section.

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching | Internet Resources for Paper-based EFL | Scoop.it

For decades, education reform has been focused on curriculum, assessment, instruction, and more recently standards, and data, with these efforts only bleeding over into how students think briefly, and by chance. This means that the focus of finite teacher and school resources are not on promoting thinking and understanding, but rather what kinds of things students are going to be thinking about and how they’ll prove they understand them.

A good review on teaching approaches used in a 21st century teaching and learning  environment.

John R. Walkup's curator insight, January 12, 2014 2:25 PM

A good discussion of Bloom's Taxonomy that includes useful cautionary discussions about the potential misuse of digital technology. I especially liked the mention about improper strategies for teaching introverts, an issue that is often glossed over in our current zest for group activities.
