Bloom Meets Maslow: Jack and the Beanstalk 2010



This was an OUTLINE I used to present the concept that Bloom's Taxonomy and Maslow's Needs Hierarchy should be used together with learning styles to provide a rich more effective learning experience.

Bloom Meets Maslow: Jack and the Beanstalk 2010 Bloom Meets Maslow: Jack and the Beanstalk 2010 Presentation Transcript

  • Jack & the Beanstalk Meets Bloom: @JD Cogmon, MSED http://www.jdcogmon.net http://www.education- epicenter.net/urbanhabitat Rev. 2011
  • Educational Scaffolding After this brief presentation you should have an idea of the following concepts:  Educational Scaffolding  Bloom’s Taxonomy  Maslow’s Needs Pyramid  Teacher Paradox
  • How do we get to the Goal? Gomoodleikiog  Google  Moodle  Wikis  Blog Interactive Learning can be used as a scaffold for understanding  Bloom’s Taxonomy (1956)  Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs (Needs Pyramid)  Teacher paradox
  • A brief word… “Like the blind men confronting the elephant, we sometimes perceive the Internet as a highway, other times as an arcade or playground, and still other times as the ultimate shopping trip.” With such a large canvas of complexity, we need scaffolding to paint the best picture for ourselves.
  • Scaffolding “Scaffolding refers to a temporary support framework used during construction. Applied to teaching and learning it describes measures to support a learner to become confident and self-reliant in a subject. In a Web environment scaffolding features need to replace the instructor.” Pahl, C. (2002). An Evaluation of Scaffolding for Virtual Interactive Tutorials. Retrieved from ERIC database.
  • Bloom’s Taxonomy: The Ideal Bloom’s Taxonomy re-written from nouns to verbs. (Anderson & Krathwohl, 2002)  “Creating” is now at the TOP!
  • Maslow’s Needs PyramidHow would you arrange thesephrases to excel atLearning/networking?Have examples of expected workKnow when assignments are dueKnow expectations of assignmentsComputer/internet connectionsKnow how to read and write
  • Teacher Paradox The more you teach a subject the better you learn a subject. This is a motivation to take the gomoodleikiog approach! As students ascend Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Bloom’s Taxonomy learning the material, they become better teachers. (The Giant is represented by Synthesis and/or Self-Actualization at the top of each respective pyramid.)
  • Questions: What are examples for Motivating students? How does a teacher?:  Emphasize Effort?  Create hope?  Respect Power?  Build Relationships?  Express Enthusiasm?
  • Tips! Identify the student’s learning style Identify individual motivations for learners in your class or workshop. Emphasize Effort Create hope Respect Power Build Relationships Express Enthusiasm http://www.jdcogmon.net/portfolio/
  • Conclusion Mastering Bloom’s Taxonomy is a challenge that can be overcome with educational scaffolding. The same theory can be applied to all other forms of learning with the use of interactive tools to move from knowing and understanding to creation/actualization. The use of Maslow’s needs hierarchy in conjunction with Bloom’s taxonomy can assist the instructor in meeting the challenge of teaching students of all ages. Many subjects are challenging like a giant, and students can be victorious if the instructor chooses the right tools for scaffolding. Interaction is one of the best scaffolding tools there are to ascend both pyramids. This analysis intentionally leaves assessment out as assessment is a whole presentation on its own. Finding out the fundamentals in this presentation sets the stage for creating a good assessment feedback loop, also known as a complex adaptive science. Now that Jack has met Bloom and Maslow, maybe I can introduce him to Gagné, Hootstein, Piaget and more? Thank you for your time
