The Seinfeld Guide to Bloom’s Taxonomy

I use Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy all the time. It is stuck on my filing cabinet in my classroom.  I have been a bit of a fan of Bloom’s Taxonomy ever since I heard about it. With technology there are so many ways to represent Bloom’s Taxonomy. A version for every learning style and approach. Zaidlearn has a great collection of the digital versions of Bloom’s Technology. I am also a bit of a fan of Seinfeld  so this version of the taxonomy appeals to me. There was a Seinfeld episode where George does the opposite to free himself as a person and it is one which has stuck in my mind .It has given me a great way of changing myself when I am stuck and can’t think of anything else.

Padagogy – Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy

padagogy Ian Green and Allan Carrington have been running padagogy workshops for faculty in Australian universities and now overseas. Allan Carrington has been blogging about it. The padagogy is based on Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy which I blogged about here earlier in the year. The visual approach which they have adopted (left) is brilliant . It just looks so effective and the sort of thing which should be hanging on our walls, be displayed on info walls and into the not so distant future I can see a big touch screen where you tap on any part of the wheel and it takes you to further screens and information. In the meantime I’d settle for a T-Shirt, a mug, a pencil case because this is one of the best visuals I have seen to advertise education and what educators can do. By using an in service approach with staff Adelaide University is ensuring better and quality uptake of the technology it is using. Comes back to the creating competence and connectedness of yesterday’s post about building engaged teams.

Blog Challenge #3 – Blog a topic plan

French er verbs I want you to blog a topic plan for something you teach. Mine is constructed according to Bloom’s Taxonomy and Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. Some of the materials I created. Some have been mustered. I then made sure I had a visual representation of it which you can see left. Why? People can take things in quickly visually and then will make their own decision as to whether they will follow up with reading your post. As they read your post they will then make a decision as to whether they will follow your links. Bit like a treasure hunt , really. I also think we need to get our lesson, unit and topic plans out into the ether so we can share. Teachers need to show what they are doing so others can see, but they also need to share so that when they are pushed for ideas they can find something which will help them get through a long , demanding day…year in, year out. My blogpost about teaching er verbs in French is here on my ah oui? blog.

What do Digital Natives need?

Last year I started to make some inroads in getting a much clearer idea of what students who have been brought up on technology need. A computer is as normal to them as a pen and paper would be to older people. They are not print based. They are connected and everything moves and shifts all the time. In the end I connected it to Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy and realised their world of connectivity is serving them well in term’s of Bloom’s. It warrants further exploration. What I need to do now is get some sound research on how 2012 students learn and look at it from a Bloom’s Taxonomy perspective. This is just a quick look.

Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy

bloom's digital taxonomyWhen applying Bloom’s Taxonomy in a technology setting it is good to have an idea of what that looks like. Educational-origami is a wiki space which has already done a lot of thinking along those lines and some of the resources have been translated into Spanish. We are revisiting the new Bloom’s Taxonomy this year at school and need to make it a focus so I am thinking that looking at the digital application of it would be a worthwhile pursuit. The thing which appealed to me the most is the digital technology summary map. It looks at the taxonomy and then applies it in a practical way to the technology possibilities which we could then consider for classroom use. My own personal mission, I think, will be to see how many of those communication skills I can achieve with my students this year. Technology is about communication and the more far reaching and profound the communication the better our local and global connections and collaboration will be. This wiki has a list of global visitors on the side so when you are there looking at it , take note of how many people from how many places have been using this site to help support their classroom teaching and learning. There is so much more to this site than I have mentioned so please take a look for yourselves.
