How The Best Web Tools Fit Into Bloom's Digital Taxonomy - Edudemic

How The Best Web Tools Fit Into Bloom's Digital Taxonomy - Edudemic | Switch On - "Making Thinking Visible" | Scoop.it
There's a new pyramid that details how the best web tools fit into Bloom's Digital Taxonomy. It's a must-see for all teachers and students alike!

Via Susan Bainbridge
Paula Jamieson's insight:

I've seen lots of these 'Bloom's Mash Up's' lately - I guess it is just a matter of finding what works for you. I personally think that visually this pyramid style would appeal to Junior teachers, it's less fuss and would be less likely to cause information overload than the full circle style ones.

Paula Jamieson's insight:

This is an App (iDiary) I will have to investigate more (today!). I love the idea of this and by revisiting this blog regularly I have been able to gain an insight into how this classroom has become almost paperless while at the same time empowering it's learners to become self reflective and successful.

7 Excellent iPad Games to Develop Kids Critical Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Excellent iPad Games to Develop Kids Critical Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Switch On - "Making Thinking Visible" | Scoop.it

"There is an app for everything these days. From health apps to travel apps, iTunes market is teeming with all kinds of apps. It only takes one click in a search engine to find what you want but as we always say not every app can do what its developers preach , you need to have a critical eye to evaluate the apps that will work for you. As teachers and educators, we are in a constant search for apps to use with our students and this is why we need to make sure we have recourse to checklists such as this onewhenever we are to recommend apps. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has even made it way easier for teachers to pick the apps they want from some pre-made lists of apps organized according to each subject area."
