Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice

Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | Assessment of Student Learning in the Online Environment | Scoop.it
I think the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy is wrong. I agree that the taxonomy accurately classifies various types of cognitive thinking skills. It certainly identifies the different levels of complexity. But its organizing framework is dead wrong.

How to get students to participate in Online Discussions

How to get students to participate in Online Discussions | Assessment of Student Learning in the Online Environment | Scoop.it

Students’ participation in online discussions is central in online learning courses as it contributes to a participative and meaningful instruction where learners build their knowledge in a constructive way with instructors, colleagues, informal sources and by reflecting upon the process.

Debbie Morrison is posting a triplet series on how to create effective discussions in an online learning environment. In part I she presents components which make online discussions effective, namely:

 

1.  A solid course design 

2.  Guidelines and expectations for students  

3.  Well constructed topics/questions

4.  The existence of a skilled facilitator or moderator

5.  An assessment component
