Have you had people ask you why you choose to use infographics in your classroom? This presentation is by Mia MacMeekin, who has created many great infographics (some of which have been posted on this Sccop.it). The best way to access this is in PDF format. This file is quite large so here is a direct link to it: http://anethicalisland.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/rscon-presentation-22.pdf

6 Alternatives To Bloom's Taxonomy For Teachers - TeachThought

6 Alternatives To Bloom's Taxonomy For Teachers - TeachThought | Teacher Tips & Tools | Scoop.it

"At the end of the day, teaching is about learning, and learning is about understanding.And as technology evolves to empower more diverse and flexible assessments forms, constantly improving our sense of what understanding looks like–during mobile learning, during project-based learning, and in a flipped classroom–can not only improve learning outcomes, but just might be the secret to providing personalized learning for every learner."

There are many taxonomies that one may use in education, and this post from TeachThought provides a look at six alternatives. Read the post to learn more about the following taxonomies:

* TeachThought Simple Taxonomy

* Six Facets of Understanding by Wiggins and McTighe

* Marzano and Kendall's New Taxonomy

* A Taxonomy of Significant Learning by Dr. L. Dee Fink

* Depth of Knowledge by Norman L. Webb

Based on publications from CRESTT that discuss the testing being designed by PARCC and Smarter Balanced (the two consortiums designing tests for Common Core) it is worth checking out the Depth of Knowledge since the tests are based on the four levels in this taxonomy.
