Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching | The McKeel IBIS Grant | Scoop.it

"Bloom’s Taxonomy can be a powerful tool to transform teaching and learning.

By design, it focuses attention away from content and instruction, and instead emphasizes the “cognitive events” in the mind of a child. And this is no small change"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 13, 2013 4:34 PM

But we are in the 21st century. How should we look at Bloom's today?

This post suggests four strategies to use as we look at the 21st century skills "which include persistent connectivity, dynamic media forms, information-rich (digital and non-digital) environments, and an emphasis on visibility for pretty much everything."

* Use every level

* Use asynchronous collaboration

* Allow students to BYOM

* Use Bloom's spiraling

Additional information on each of these strategies is available in the post.

Michelle Daniels's curator insight, November 16, 2013 12:20 PM

As I become a better facilitator it is important to find engaging, effective and efficient methods and strategies within the classrooms of our children; as well as for all adults attending brick & mortor or  online colleges. Bloom's Taxonomy is an essential tool!

Great idea! This would make a good icebreaker activity. Many of these examples are very dark or inappropriate for school/certain age groups. Be cautious when displaying these on your Smart Board or Apple T.V.
