…oopps…So is this assignment 4 ? - Just to find websites ? Using google as a search engine- which level in bloom taxonomy is it ?Assignment=4 - I need clarification...and i wonder[post send to the forum]http://venture-lab.org/education/topics/7650
Assignment=4 - I need clarification...and i wonder[post send to the forum]http://venture-lab.org/education/topics/7650Hi AllI still not sure i understand what to do with the assignment- Do we have to choosetechnological tools for each level of bloom taxonomy and search for examples already existon the internet , or to create our own examples ?For example: if i choose a blog as technological tool, do i have to create my own example toshoh how it can express through an examplr a certain level of bloom taxnomy[remembring, understandig, etc...] ? or just look for examles already exist ?Weather the answer to the question above, I wonder if the better way todeal with the assignment is to let the pedagogy lead and technology willfollow. i mean to choose a specific subjet, to write learning behavioralobjectives and skills we want to promote [using verb of bloom taxnomy]and than choose suited technological tools and justify its added values forreaching the objectives.I think the most important is to show what is the added value [if at all?] oftechnological tools to implementation of bloom taxonomy.On the other hand, i wonder if those new technology tools has a potential tothink in a critical way on bloom taxonomy - Can technology change/improvepedagogy ?What do you think ?Dov - See the discussion
Well…I decided to keep on searching…This is a different story….Remmeber….
