Useful concept map of Bloom's Taxonomy with a digital flavour on a great wiki --> Educational Origami http://edorigami.wikispaces.com/Bloom's+Digital+Taxonomy

The beauty of this concept map lies in the addition of Creativity at the high order thinking level. How do you design learning so that students are enabled to creatively evidence their learning using digital media?

Two other useful posts on this include: http://www.onlineuniversities.com/blog/2012/06/flipping-expanding-blooms-taxonomy/ by Dr Justin W Marquis

There are two ways how you can add a video to your Prezi. 1) you can insert a link to a YouTube video or 2) you can embed a video into your presentation. The article describes the advantages and drawbacks of both ways.
