A Powerful App For Every Level Of Bloom's Taxonomy - Edudemic | iPads in Education | Scoop.it

"There are a ton of apps out there that address different ideas in the Bloom’s Taxonomy hierarchy. There are a multitude of resources out there that list tons of apps that are relevant. Some may be useful to you, some not, but either way, that’s a lot of information to sort through. So we pulled together a list of six apps – one for each level of understanding in the Bloom’s scheme. There are obviously innumerable combinations that you can shuffle together to make a grouping that works great for you – this is just one (six!) option(s)."

I was toying with writing about the landforms in Goblin Valley after the hearing of vandals destroying part of this gorgeous landscape. Differential erosion is the key to making these formations as a resistant cap protects some of the softer rock underneath.  This article should answer most of your questions about the physical geography behind this current event.

This is probably the reason why students love it when comics and graphic are included in instruction. In this regard,  Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has curated a list of some powerful iPad apps that you and your students can use to visually grab ideas and create sketchy mindmaps. I invite you to check the collection below and share with us what you think of them."

As an avid mind mapper, I would like to add the following apps to the growing list: ThinkBuzan.com's iMindMap HD; Mindjet Maps; MindMaple, and iThoughts HD. Also, MindTools HD for the iPad (see mindtools.com) is a suite of tools covering a wide range of essential skills for students and workplace professionals alike.
Melissa Marshall's comment, September 23, 2013 11:02 PM
great, thanks Rick I will have a look at some of those! Evernote and Notability are my two personal faves, My students love Popplet for mind mapping and they draw a lot using Notability.

I use Evernote on my iPhone, iPad and PC as well. Excellent tool for managing information of all types
