A Handy Chart Featuring Some of The Best Tools and Apps for Creating Educational Screencasts ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Handy Chart Featuring Some of The Best Tools and Apps for Creating Educational Screencasts ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Inspiration in Instructional Design (STEM style) | Scoop.it
A screencast, also known as video screen capture, is a great way for teachers to create and share instructional videos and explanatory step-by-step tutorials with students. regardless of the purposes for which you are creating a screencast, the quality of your video screen captures can sometimes impede the communicative intent of your message. Therefore, knowing what tools to use to create educational screencasts is as important as the content of the screencasts themselves. To this end, we have curated for you this collection of some of the best screen casting tools out there. We have divided them into four major categories: Web tools, Chromebook apps, iPad apps, and Android apps.

New: Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit for Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

New: Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit for Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Inspiration in Instructional Design (STEM style) | 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, 2014 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.

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

This is just the beginning, many open LMS will begin to switch over to a competency-based assessment. Right now, Learnboost has this ability but I will look and compare to see what the differences.
