very important 

KB...Konnected's curator insight, November 20, 2013 1:14 PM
Beth Dichter's insight:

This tool is easy to use and assists you in writing objectives. It is based on Bloom's taxonomy and provides a number of drop down menus that allow you to:

* Select what students will do after completing a lesson

* Provides an overview of the meaning of the level you selected

* Provides a drop down list of verbs that help to clearly define the objective (you choose the one you want to use)

* Provides some sample objectives that use the verb you selected

* Write your own objective, and then copy and paste it into your document or print a copy

The version of Bloom's they have online uses the word synthesis while the new version has removed synthesis and replaces it with creating. I don't believe that this impacts the value of the tool but you should be aware that it may not provide the assistance for that specific category.
