Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version

Bloom’s Taxonomy: The 21st Century Version | Library Media | Scoop.it

So much have been written about Bloom’s taxonomy; one click in a search engine will flood your page with hundreds of articles all of which revolve around this taxonomy. Only few are those who have tried to customize it to fit in the 21st century educational paradigm. As a fan of Bloom’s pedagogy and being a classroom practitioner, I always look for new ways to improve my learning and teaching, and honestly speaking , if you are a teacher/ educator and still do not understand Bloom’s taxonomy then you are missing out on a great educational resource.
The following article is a summary and a fruit of my long painstaking research in the field of Bloom’s taxonomy. The purpose is to help teachers grow professionally and provide them with a solid informational background on how to better understand and apply Bloom’s taxonomy in classrooms in the light of the new technological advances and innovations..
Bloom’s taxonomy of learning as Wikipedia has put it is “ a classification of learning objectives within education proposed in 1956 by a committee of educators chaired by Benjamin Bloom ”. Although it received little attention when first published, Bloom’s taxonomy has since been translated into 22 languages and is one of the most widely applied and most often cited reference in education.
Bloom, being convinced of the importance of thinking behaviors in the processes of learnign, had spearheaded a group of brilliant educational psychologists to undertake the task of classifying educational goals and objectives. They first came up with a general framework which was turned later on to a taxonomy of 3 domains.

Students Demand the Right to Use Technology in Schools | MindShift

Students Demand the Right to Use Technology in Schools | MindShift | Library Media | Scoop.it

We’ve heard arguments from ed tech experts about how using technology for learning may in fact deepen the divide between wealthy and low-income kids. Students who have access to technology and are encouraged by teachers and parents to leverage it for new ways of learning, the argument goes, will leap even further ahead than low-income students who are forbidden to use it in public schools.

My 5 Biggest Twitter Tips | Edudemic

My 5 Biggest Twitter Tips | Edudemic | Library Media | Scoop.it

Whether you’re a new user of Twitter or a seasoned expert, the following tips are meant to act as a refresher for anyone feeling like Twitter hasn’t been doing as much for them as they’d hoped.

Twitter can be a rewarding yet cumbersome tool that requires constant supervision. That means it could be very difficult to manage for most full-time teachers, administrators, and really anyone who has responsibilities. If you haven’t yet signed up for Twitter, don’t let this caveat stop you.

Like any social network, you should dip your toe in, spend some time absorbing, and then figure out if it can fit into your life. If you simply have no time to manage your Twitter account and hate even logging in, then Twitter is not going to be a very powerful tool for you. But if you’re willing to devote at least a little time and attention to Twitter, you can learn, connect, and evolve in ways like never before.

So how should you go about using Twitter on a daily basis? The following tips and recommendations are based on my personal experience with Twitter. Your experiences will likely be different so I’ve tried to keep these as general-yet-specific-enough so they’re helpful for anyone.

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | Library Media | Scoop.it

I give presentations to educators at every level, all around the world. All of the teachers are earnestly trying to adapt their educational system to the twenty-first century. During my talks, however, I typically look out at oceans of white hair. Never -- I can't even say rarely -- is a kid in sight or invited to the party.

 

It is a measure of the malaise of our educational system that these old folk -- smart and experienced as they may be -- think they can, by themselves and without the input of the people they're trying to teach, design the future of education.

5 Innovative Mind-Mapping Tools For Education | Edudemic

5 Innovative Mind-Mapping Tools For Education | Edudemic | Library Media | Scoop.it

What do you do when you have an elaborate project, assignment, or paper that needs to be quickly organized? Do you fire up Microsoft Word and whip up an outline? Do you pull out a pen and paper and start sketching?

What if you could have the best of both options with a free online tool? It’s called ‘mind mapping’ (“Mind Map” is a trademark of the Buzan Organization.) and it’s basically a fun and intuitive way to visually organize your thoughts. Thanks to a recent article, I received an influx of mind-mapping web tools that I wanted to pass along to the Edudemic audience. Enjoy!

The Teacher’s Quick Guide To Pinterest | Edudemic

The Teacher’s Quick Guide To Pinterest | Edudemic | Library Media | Scoop.it

Pinterest, created in 2009 and launched in March of 2010, has been ranked 10th out of the top visited social networking sites across the world, allowing users to search for pins with a specific theme or subject. According to Pearson (2011), teachers can easily bookmark or “pin” lesson plans across the web for a later date, organize resources for the classroom, share unique ideas, and allow for collaboration with students, parents, and colleagues. A good example of pinning can be found in a blog-post entitled 30 Inspiring Pinterest Pins for Teachers (2012) where the author shares 30 specific pin boards covering everything from arts and crafts to methods of classroom management through visually stimulating images. While perusing these ideas, I decided to create a group board for my own students to collaborate with one another and other teachers from around the world.

Technology Tools to Get Teachers Started

Technology Tools to Get Teachers Started | Library Media | Scoop.it

The culture of learning is changing, and technology is playing a major role in the transformation. Educators and students are altering the very nature of the classroom experience by increasingly turning to technology as an integral component of learning.

 

The result is that school is beginning to more closely resemble the real world, thereby becoming more valuable, relevant, and useful for everyone involved.

 

Sounds good, doesn't it? That's certainly the ideal, but there is so much out there: wikis, blogs, Twitter, social networking, and the near-infinite resources of the Web. Teachers, like a lot of us, may be overwhelmed, especially if, like a lot of us, they don't have a natural affinity for technology and the online world.

Cheating Goes Digital

Cheating Goes Digital | Library Media | Scoop.it

Cheating in the classroom is as old as the classroom itself. But teachers need to wise up to their students' technological savvy. Peeking over their shoulders to glimpse responses on a classmate's papers and coughing in tune with answers are old school. Today's students are cheating by programming answers into their graphing calculators and beaming them to friends, texting answers to exam questions -- or sending images of the answers -- and recording cheat sheets and playing them back on their iPods during exams.
