Twitter Aligned with Bloom's Taxonomy for Your Students | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Twitter Aligned with Bloom's Taxonomy for Your Students | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Cognitive Rigor | Scoop.it

Thinking about using Twitter with your students ? The visual below is one of the best guide I have come across online. The graphic is created by Langwitches and provides a cognitive incentive for those reluctant teachers out there to start using social media with their students and particularly Twitter.

Langwitches started her graphic by outlining some of the reasons why as a teacher you should be engaged in a tweeting experience with your students. Tweeting, as is shown here, helps you cultivate a wide range of important literacies including : digital literacy, information literacy, network literacy and also promotes some other skills such as critical thinking and reading and writing skills.

It is easy to expect students to learn at high levels, it is quite another thing to provide the support students need.

Webb's Depth of Knowledge (DOK) provides a vocabulary and a frame of reference when thinking about our students and how they engage with the content. DOK offers a common language to understand "rigor," or cognitive demand, in assessments, as well as curricular units, lessons, and tasks.

Sue Hellman at UNB's curator insight, March 13, 2013 7:53 PM

Rigour does not have to mean rigidity. Alternate assessment can be as challenging and rigourous as traditional ways of determining what students have know or can do. Providing direct guidance about what each student needs to know to overcome whatever personal learning gaps stand between him/her and being successful in an academic environment. Each course, then on many levels, becomes a direct stepping stone to the next (inside a discipline, across disciplines) as the student develops a body of skills and knowledge that confer academic empowerment in a holistic way.

I was so happy to read the in the beginning, as soon as I finished reading the articles I didn't get the clear picture of what is the bloom's taxonomy, I never heard the terminology all my life. I was frustrated and asked my peers.

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

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching | Cognitive Rigor | 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"

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!

How To Add Rigor To Anything

How To Add Rigor To Anything | Cognitive Rigor | Scoop.it

"

"Rigor is a fundamental piece of any learning experience.

It is also among the most troublesome due to its relativity. Rigorous for whom? And more importantly, how can you “cause” it?

Barbara Blackburn, author of “Rigor is not a 4-Letter Word,” shared 5 “myths” concerning rigor, and they are indicative of the common misconceptions: that difficult, dry, academic, sink-or-swim learning is inherently rigorous.

Myth #1: Lots of Homework is a Sign of Rigor
Myth #2: Rigor Means Doing More
Myth #3: Rigor is Not For Everyone
Myth #4: Providing Support Means Lessening Rigor
Myth #5: Resources Do Not Equal Rigor"

Rigor is not "more of it;" it's scaffolding towards greater complexity.

Depth of Knowledge Information

Depth of Knowledge Information | Cognitive Rigor | Scoop.it

Depth of Knowledge is the degree of depth or complexity of knowledge standards and assessments require; this criterion is met if the assessment is as demanding cognitively as the expectations standards are set for students.

DOK is NOT.....
about Verbs - Verbs are not always used appropriately.
about "difficulty" - It is not about the student or level of difficulty for the student - it requires looking at the assessment item not student work in order to determine the level. DOK is about the item/standard - not the student.

DOK is....
about what FOLLOWS the verb. What comes after the verb is more important than the verb itself.
about the complexity of mental processing that must occur to answer a question.

Remember DOK...
Descriptive, not a taxonomy
Focuses on how deeply the student has to know the content in order to respond.
Not the same as difficulty.
