  7. 7. RememberingRemembering: Retrieving, recalling or recognizing knowledgefrom memory. Remembering is when memory is used toproduce definitions, facts or lists, or recite or retrieve material.Digital Additions:• Bullet Pointing• Highlighting• Bookmarking• Social Networking• Searching or “Goggling”
  8. 8. This is a rubric for the Bookmarking, Favouriting and Social Bookmarking. This isexamining the process of recording and remembering key sites and URLs. Theactivity is in its simplest form at Remembering level but as the students adddetail, explanations and structure it advances into Understanding.
  9. 9. UnderstandingUnderstanding builds relationships and links knowledge. Studentsunderstand the processes and concepts and are able to explain ordescribe these. They can summarize and rephrase these into theirown words.Digital Additions• Advanced Boolean Search• Blog Journaling• Categorizing and Tagging• Commenting and Annotating
  10. 10. This is a rubric for the using advanced and Boolean searches. This search requires anunderstanding of the keywords, Boolean logic, advanced search features, structuringand refining searches and suitable search engines. Students
  11. 11. ApplyingApplying: Carrying out or using a procedure through executingor implementing. Applying related and refers to situationswhere learned material is used through products likemodels, presentation, interviews and simulations.Digital Additions:• Running and Operating• Playing• Uploading and Sharing• Hacking*• Editing*hacking in its simpler forms is applying a simple set of rules toachieve a goal or objective.

  13. 13. AnalyzingAnalyzing: Breaking material or concepts into parts, determining howthe parts relate or interrelate to one another or to an overall structureor purpose. Mental actions include differentiating, organizing andattributing as well as being able to distinguish between components.Digital Additions:• Mashing• Linking• Reverse Engineering• Cracking**Cracking requires the cracker to understand and operate the application or systembeing cracked, analyze its strengths and weaknesses and then exploit these.
  14. 14. This is a rubric for data processing, manipulation, presentation and analysis. The rubricis designed for students taking raw data and suitably entering this into a spreadsheet(data processing). The processed data is then manipulated to add value using featureslike sort, filter, formula and equations…
  15. 15. EvaluatingEvaluating: Making judgments based on criteria and standardsthrough checking and critiquing.Digital Additions:• Blog Commenting and Reflecting• Posting• Moderating• Collaborating and Networking• Testing• Validating
  16. 16. This is a rubric for a Threaded Discussion. The rubric is in two parts, the first is forunderstanding and the second part for evaluating. This is examining the process ofreplying to a post and discussing using asynchronous threaded discussion tool.
