New: Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit for Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Research Skills | Scoop.it

The reason why I am sharing this work here is because it provides a new way to think about Bloom's Taxonomy. In Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit, you will be offered with a variety of key words, action verbs, outcomes and questions  related to each of the thinking levels in the taxonomy. Here is the link of the original chart, try to zoom it in to make it legible.

Great resource.

Phil Chappell's comment, March 30, 2:18 AM
Thanks Rob. You're correct.I have not come up with my own taxonomy, but I never intended to. Unfortunately we're no closer to empirical evidence then. I'm aware of the genesis of the work, and a group I'm in is puzzling over how it has been recontextualised to the teaching domain and become rather doctrinaire. I do hope, however, that it is a little more pedagogically valuable than Chomsky's work. It would be an interesting PhD study for someone so inclined - to chart a research agenda for Bloom's taxonomy as applied to education.
Karyn McGinley's curator insight, April 5, 4:07 PM

Thanks for sharing this.  Anything new that has to do with Bloom's has got to be good!

Three experts shared tech tips and tools during “Flipped School Libraries,” a rapid-fire, dynamic session during The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries (#TDS13) webcast.

 

 

Through the use of innovative technologies and online resources, school libraries can now be available tostudents wherever—and whenever—they need them. “Flipped” or blended learning offers students thepower of personalized instruction, through a mix of virtual and face-to-face interactions, at a student’s own pace. Embracing this concept is a must for student engagement and the future of the profession, say school librarians Joyce Valenza, Brenda Boyer, and Michelle Luhtala.

Sources and Tags: Dennis O'Connor's Curating Secrets | Research Skills | Scoop.it

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.
