For today's post, I am sharing with you some great posters on Blooms Taxonomy. Honestly, as soon as I set my eyes on them, I fell in love with them. They are well designed and are visually appealing and can fit in your classroom perfectly.

Bridget Hillas's insight:

The 'blues clues' look alike poses the question:

"What is the implication of these different learning styles for how we communicate?".  He says "create communication materials that go for each of the four VARK groups or where possible create a multi-media piece that uses visual, audio, text and interactive moments to reach all the four learning groups"

Do you have any techniques, links to technology, resources or tasks that could help us do this in the classroom?

Doesn't it come down to Lesson planning? Thinking through the text you are using (Audio or written), thinking through the stages of unpacking the text and tasks you will use, thinking through the balance of interactions and how they will work, thinking through the overall aim of the lesson.

Re Paul's comment - I think I kind of get the way it defines visual in a way that excludes video etc. As Al said, Video is more of a combination... so actually becomes quite a good tool for a multi-modal resource...
NFSolomon's comment, July 8, 2013 7:01 PM
I was initially surprised that the visual learning styles did not include video and animated websites, visual learners may appreciate these tools when learning but because they are more interactive maybe they could be considered kinaesthetic tools? Surely pictures would be visual though? I do not think that many peoples learning styles could be defined by one style alone; so if someone is a visual learner and appreciates the use of video and animated websites then perhaps they are blurring the lines between being a visual and a kinaesthetic learner.

I have found our recent class studies on Blooms really helpful in terms of considering the thinking stages of learning and in terms of scaffolding questioning to lead to higher levels of thinking, especially when engaging with meaningful images which we can learn from.

Bloom.pdf

Amelia's insight:

This article outlines some limitations of Bloom's Taxonomy including the fact that, despite recent attempts to update the theory, it continues to be outdated as educators now view learning as being about a lot more than just thinking. There are also some challenges in classifying more difficult learning activities using Bloom's Taxonomy as they come under more than one label. How could these limitations be overcome?

 

It also outlines some strengths of the theory and, despite the limitations, it does help to develop higher level thinking.

ElaineR5's comment, July 8, 2013 6:55 PM
I think we need to know what is happening in terms of cognitive processes as there are now so many kids with learning disorders of one sort or another - it is helpful to know where the gaps are and how to adapt the curriculum and learning tasks to guide these learners. However, cognitive processes are only part of a picture of learning and i seem to always err on the side of a more wholistic approach. Bloom's taxonomy helps to know where to prod a learner in their thinking and provides a backdrop to aiding students to develop self-awareness of thinking processes

Comparing the original (1957 edition) and revised (2001) lists: Knowledge (remembering), comprehension (understanding), application (applying), analysis (analyzing), synthesis (evaluating) and evaluation (creating).
These still seem fairly relevant.

There are nine events that support this according to Gayne.

Inform learners of object

Stimulate recall materal

Provide learning guidance - scaffold

Elicit peformance - tests essays

Provide feedback - feed forward

Assess performance

Enhance retention & transfer - make it real to form connections

I have found Gardner's MI theory hugely freeing personally and also it gives me a framework to think about intelligences of my students, not just in terms of singular intelligences but multiple intelligences. For those who don't feel they are high achievers I think this kind of understanding could be hugely motivating e.g they may have musical intelligence or spatial intelligence.
