      These processes can be applied to purposes such as:
      • developing understanding
      • making decisions
      • shaping actions
      • constructing knowledge (NZC Page 12)
    • Intellectual curiosity is at the heart of this competency(NZC Page 12)
    • As educators we must
      • Understand what thinking is
      • Know about strategies and tools which develop thinking skills
      • Teach these strategies and tools to our students
      • Use them often in teaching and learning

    • He identified six levels
      Knowledge
      Comprehension
      Application
      Analysis
      Synthesis
      Evaluation
      Remembering
      The ability to grasp the meaning of material
      The ability to use learned material in new ways
      An understanding of both the content and the structural form of material
      The ability to put parts together to form something new
      The ability to judge the value of material for a given purpose
    • Anderson’s revised taxonomy
      Bloom’s Taxonomy wheel
      Teaching & Learning at each level this term? Discuss
    • Bloom’s Taxonomy in the classroomUse video and photos to engage and motivate
      After watching the next video you will be asked to
      • Remember
      • Understand
      • Apply
      • Analyse
      • Evaluate
      • Create
