Bloom's Taxonomy Verbs - Free Classroom Chart - FRACTUS LEARNING

Bloom's Taxonomy Verbs - Free Classroom Chart - FRACTUS LEARNING | Instructional design | Scoop.it
Over sixty years ago, our dear friend Benjamin Bloom chaired the committee of educators responsible for delivering what we all know today as Bloom’s Taxonomy (a bit rich naming it after himself, but it does have a more catchy ring than Krathwohl‘s Taxonomy). As a key foundation to many modern teaching philosophies, Bloom’s Taxonomy gives a theoretical progression to help classify learning objectives.

While this theoretical model is the backbone for many of our education systems, turning the theory it into real classroom tasks requires a more practical slant on the taxonomy. In an effort to turn a high level taxonomy into meaningful classroom learning experiences a number of educators have translated each definition into a set of actionable Bloom’s Taxonomy verbs. The below chart visualizes each level of the taxonomy, offering verbs that can be used to traverse a wide range of thinking skills and provide hands-on ideas and inspiration for practical classroom activities.

14 Tips to Make BYOD Programs Work for You -- THE Journal

14 Tips to Make BYOD Programs Work for You -- THE Journal | Instructional design | Scoop.it
Schools that experiment with bring-your-own-device policies have reduced their costs but must cope with a variety of student devices, some of which don't meet minimum standards for computer instruction.

And if a student misuses a device, it could be taken away from him or her, creating the exact opposite situation that benefits education. Naturally, the student who is prone to misuse a device is often a student who needs the device most. Textbooks don't generate such tricky issues.

"How many teachers take away a textbook because students are misbehaving with it?" said West Coast-based educator Susan Brooks-Young, one of a trio of experts who conducted a BYOD workshop at FETC 2016 in Orlando.

The educators who attended the workshop listed the pros and cons of having students supply their own computers for schoolwork.
