Bloom’s taxonomy

  1. 1. BLOOM’S TAXONOMY BY: KARLA
  2. 2. PEOPLE INVOLVED: BENJAMIN BLOOM • Born in 1913 • American Educational Psychologist • Bloom demonstrated that a students environment can foster the student’s potential. • Bloom developed “Bloom’s Taxonomy” which classified different learning objectives that educators can set for students.
  3. 3. BLOOM’S TAXONOMY Old version (1956) New version (2001)
  4. 4. OLD VERSION • According to the Vanderbilt University website, the old version consisted of: • •Knowledge “the recall of methods and processes, or the recall of a pattern, structure, or setting.” • •Comprehension “refers to a type of understanding or apprehension such that the individual knows what is being communicated • •Application refers to the “use of abstractions in particular and concrete situations.” • •Analysis represents the “breakdown of a communication into its constituent elements”. • •Synthesis involves the “putting together of elements and parts so as to form a whole.” • •Evaluation: “judgments about the value of material and methods for given purposes.”
  5. 5. NEW VERSION • Reevaluated in 2001, Psychologists renewed Bloom’s Taxonomy to match the new generation of students: • Remembering: can the student recall or remember the information? • Understanding: can the student explain ideas or concept? • Applying: can the student use the information in a new way? • Analyzing: can the student distinguish between the different parts? • Evaluating can the student justify a stand or decision? • Creating: can the student create new product or point of view?
  6. 6. CLASSROOM IMPLICATIONS • ◦What the teacher does under this theory? • With technology: Teachers benefit from using frameworks to organize objectives • Without: Creating learning goals in a pedagogical interchange so students understand the purpose • ◦What the students do under this theory • With technology: Students can construct, create, design, and appraise new ideas with computer and software. • Without: Students discuss, criticize, argue, or defend different ideas with one another and teachers can better understand their students.
  7. 7. THOUGHTS • As a future educator, I believe Bloom’s Taxonomy helps teachers understand their students needs from most important to least important. I believe this theory helps a lot of educators if used and I will use Bloom’s Taxonomy in my future classroom
