Bloom’S And Technology Integration

  1. 1. Bloom’s and Technology Integration: Taking It to the 21 st Century By Annette Williams
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>In 1956, a committee of educational psychologists, led by Benjamin Bloom , developed a classification of intellectual objectives and skills essential to learning. </li></ul><ul><li>These learning objectives, known as Bloom's Taxonomy </li></ul>
  3. 3. Introduction <ul><li>For over 50 years, these objectives have been used to structure lessons, guide learning, and assess students' performance. </li></ul><ul><li>However, current educational initiatives have prompted the revision of these objectives to include the use of technology for instruction. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Lorin Anderson (a former student of Bloom), revised Bloom's original objectives. The following diagrams compare Bloom's original taxonomy to Anderson's revised taxonomy.
  5. 5. Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy <ul><li>The revised taxonomy has been recently updated to reflect the current educational and training practices that include the integration of technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Andrew Church's Bloom's Digital Taxonomy addresses the struggles teachers face when attempting to integrate new technology into classroom lessons. </li></ul><ul><li>Church (2008) suggested Bloom's revised taxonomy accounts for many of the traditional classroom practices, behaviors, and actions. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy <ul><li>Church's updates focus on the development of lessons that facilitate collaborative learning via digital technology. </li></ul><ul><li>The updates to the revised taxonomy are more closely aligned to the standards outlined under the 21st Century Learning framework. </li></ul>
  7. 7. The HOTS and LOTS
  8. 8. 21st Century Learning <ul><li>Take a tour of Bloom's Taxonomy - An Overview </li></ul>
  9. 9. 21st Century Learning <ul><li>Take a Tour Integrating Technology into Bloom's Taxonomy - Designing Activities </li></ul>
  10. 10. 21st Century Learning <ul><li>The elements described in this section as “ 21st century student outcomes” are the skills, knowledge and expertise students should master to succeed in work and life in the 21st century </li></ul><ul><li>This presents a view of 21st century teaching and learning that combines a discrete focus on 21st century student outcomes </li></ul><ul><li>A blending of specific skills, content knowledge, expertise and literacy's with innovative support systems (Technology) to help students master the multi-dimensional abilities required of them in the 21st century. </li></ul><ul><li>1. Core Subjects and 21st Century Themes </li></ul><ul><li>2. Learning and Innovation Skills   </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Creativity and Innovation </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Critical Thinking and Problem Solving </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Communication and Collaboration </li></ul><ul><li>3. Information, Media and Technology Skills </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Information Literacy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Media Literacy </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ICT Literacy </li></ul></ul><ul><li>4. Life and Career Skills   </li></ul>
  11. 11. 21st Century Learning <ul><li>Integrating Technology into the classroom will help the students to build those 21st century skills that they need to possess such as: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>critical thinking </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>problem solving </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>communication skills </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>creativity </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>innovative thinking </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>information technology </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  12. 12. 21st Century The specific NCLB goals for the Title II, Part D – Enhancing Education through Technology <ul><ul><li>To improve student academic achievement through the use of technology in elementary schools and secondary schools. Create. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To assist every student in crossing the digital divide by ensuring that every student is technologically literate by the time the student finishes eighth grade, regardless of the student’s race, ethnicity, gender, family income, geographic location, or disability. Connect. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To encourage the effective integration of technology resources and systems with teacher training and curriculum development to establish research-based instructional methods that can be widely implemented as best practices by state education agencies and local education agencies. Communicate. </li></ul></ul>
