Digital Differentiation

Digital Differentiation | Technologies for Learning M.R | Scoop.it

"Technology is a tool that can be used to help teachers facilitate learning experiences that address the diverse learning needs of all students and help them develop 21st Century Skills. At it's most basic level, digital tools can be used to help students find, understand and use information. When combined with student-driven learning experiences fueled by Essential Questions offering flexible learning paths, it can be the ticket to success. Here is a closer look at three components of effectively using technology as a tool for digital differentiation."

Tool or Toy? The Blurred Line of a Computer

 

This blog is the argument for this assignment.  The author, Jeff Utecht, believes it is time to drop the phrase "the 21st century" because we are teaching kids who have only lived in this century.  It is also time to accept that the computer is more than a tool.  Our definitions of work, play, tool and toy are no longer clearly defined.  He is a believer.

Development of Learners’ Critical Thinking:

Primary School Teachers’ Attitudes

Panagiotis Giavrimis

 

This article supports what we know and believe about using technology in schools.  However it goes further to say that "Technologies, thanks to their great potential and motivational character, energise the learners to gain control over their learning, to interact, to engage in complex mental situations and efforts. The results of researches concerning the impact of ICT on the enhancement of critical thinking indicate statistically significant correlations between studying within a technology-rich environment and the possession of critical thinking skills (Lee, 2002). McMahon (2009) found that the students who had been using ICT for more than five years possessed more critical thinking skills in comparison to those who had been using it for less than five years.  The wealth of resources available on internet develops inquiry skills, provides access to the world of knowledge and requires learners’ critical thinking, in order to decide which information to accept and absorb and which to reject."  Giavrimis finds that the simple use of technology stimulates the many skills we want students to develop.  He does not compare these students with students from inquiry rich classrooms without technology.  His greatest despair are with teachers who do not embrace a technological way of learning.

This is an update to Bloom's Revised Taxonomy which attempts to account for the new behaviours and actions emerging as technology advances and becomes more ubiquitous. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy describes many traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions, but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with Web 2.0 technologies, infowhelm (the exponential growth in information), increasing ubiquitous personal technologies or cloud computing.

Many teachers use Bloom's Taxonomy and Bloom's Revised Taxonomy in developing and structuring their teaching & learning experiences. Bloom's Digital taxonomy is an attempt to marry Bloom's revised taxonomy and the key verbs to digital approaches and tools.

Create, create, create!  Design.  Build!  Love the direction here!

I try to weave Bloom into every lesson and build to the end of the trimester at the top.

Nancy L Zingrone's curator insight, January 26, 2013 5:51 PM

This is a much better trajectory for the elements in the taxonomy. Creativity is both the pinnacle of what we do and at the heart of what we do.
