Digital Bloom’s Taxonomy: Technologies that BuildEmpowerment and Excellence Equity within the Classroom Conference Detroit, MI 4.8.13 A’Kena LongBenton, MA, PMC Wayne State University firstname.lastname@example.org
Workshop Abstract This workshop will begin with comparing/contrasting Bloom’sTaxonomy original and revised versions. Next, it will explain the revisedversion in detail. Moreover, participants will be exposed to Bloom’s DigitalTaxonomy, which addresses how technologies readily connect topedagogical practices across various disciplines. The facilitator will introduce the following technologies: Animoto,Blogspot, Camtasia, Edublog, Glogster, Google Drive, Poll Everywhere, Prezi,QuestGarden, QuizBreak!, Skype, Slideshare, SurveyMonkey, TED, Toondoo,VoiceThread, Voki, Weebly, Wikispaces, and YouTube. The technologies can be used in several ways: 1) audioannouncements/homework reminders; 2) audiovisual lectures; 3) contentpresentations; 4) course management systems; 5) curriculum webs; 6)electronic journal writing; 7) formative assessment tools; 8) inquiry-basedlearning; 9) quiz reviews; 10) voice/video-based discussion boards; and 11)video attention-grabbers or content summaries.
Content/Format Activities As time permits, the aforementioned technologies will be introduced in aworkshop format where instructors will actively participate in technology-basedinstructional activities. For example, using the Poll Everywhere tool, instructors willelectronically respond to a posed question using their mobile devices (cell phone,laptop, or tablet). Subsequently, electronic real-time survey results will appear on anLCD overhead projector screen. Also, instructors will create at least one technologytool that they can use in their classroom and share their creations at the conclusionof the workshop. Below are self-created examples of some of the aforementionedtechnology tools. Furthermore, in this workshop, instructors will have an opportunity towitness what the aforementioned technologies look like in practice. (Theres nothingworst than hearing about a concept, but never seeing it in action! :-)) Mostimportantly, they will be able to walk away from this workshop with applicableknowledge that will assist them in their classrooms. This session will not be a "sitand get" rather a "make and take" professional development. The facilitator is notinterested in simply feeding the instructors information that they may never use, butrather offer them an authentic learning experience.

Words of Caution• The technologies explored promote: active and independent learning, application, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, student engagement and reflection—not mere comprehension.• Word of Caution: Soft skills need to be addressed when technologies are used, e.g., time management skills. There are countless technologies and distractions on the internet. If students are not instructor-guided and/or focused, then tons of unproductive hours can be spent on the web with no intellectual gains.
