A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

"Today while I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I came across this fabulous Bloom's Taxonomy wheel of apps shared by Anthony. If you still recall, some previous versions of this wheel have already been featured here in Bloom's Taxonomy for Teachers section .

As you can see, the wheel outlines a wide variety of verbs and activities related to each thinking level of Blooms taxonomy coupled with iPad apps that go with it. These apps are supposed to help teachers and students better cultivate these different thinking levels in their use of iPad apps. And because the the visual is not hyperlinked, I went ahead and provided the links for each of these apps in the lists below. Enjoy"

WOW! I use freewrites in my face-to-face class because I don't believe a person can write without thinking. Yet, the document students are writing about is always distinct from the free write. In LMS discussion boards the situation is the same.

 

Do you remember how annotations use to appear in the margins of really good books? This is the same. The two-pane interface puts the document right in front of the student and lets them attach their comments to specific paragraphs, pictures or videos.  How perfect is that?

 

I want to try this for a quarter.

Ben Hendry's curator insight, March 15, 2:41 AM

BigData-Startups founder Mark van Rijmenam asserts that Artificial intelligence will continue to grow exponentially and have profound implications on the technology behind data management. 

 

Rijmenam points to a report[1] released by the EU that "- the global market for AI is set to grow from € 700 million (1.08 billion AUD) in 2013 to € 27 billion (41 billion AUD) in 2015." Such a substantial investment is warranted not only due to the promising results seen already in tasks such as forecasting and automation, but because of the challenges that are being faced and yet to be solved.

 

The ideology behind Artificial Intelligence is that software possesses the perceptive capabilities of a human in concert with the efficiency of a computer. 

 

Predicting human behaviour, modelling data, fostering a life-like social environment between man and machine, and automation are not only fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence development but also industry and commercial enterprise. Which is why the world will continue to see significant investments in the field in years to come.

6 ways to rethink corporate knowledge sharing

The quest to effectively share knowledge within a company is one that still appears elusive. How do you keep on top of your competitors’ developments? How do you monitor articles that mention your brand? How do you make sure your teams get the information they need to make decisions and to learn? 

While we never had more ways to disseminate intelligence and knowledge within companies, it's easy to feel overwhelmed so that we're still often perceiving a lack of communication in the corporate world.

"Like cheating on a test, ignoring a friend’s phone call, wallowing in self-pity, or eating a pint of ice cream in one sitting, being wrong feels the worst when someone else is around to witness it. Unlike these things, being wrong is unjustly stigmatized as unacceptable. Everyone answers a question incorrectly now and then, but it’s the shame associated with being wrong, especially in front of others, that harms us more than the fault itself."

Too often we may hear the words "I don't know" because the student may feel embarrassed if the give an incorrect answer. This post discusses this topic in some detail before it provides 20 suggestions on ways to work with students to help them overcome the fear of being wrong. Five of the suggestions are below. Additional information on each is in the post as well as fifteen additional suggestions.

* Learning has two definitions and one is failure.

* Always respond to an answer with more than No."

* Turn wrong answers into a learning experience for all.

* The "wrong" answer is often more educational than the "right" answer.

* Remember that everyone is wrong sometimes.
