Analyze : Differentiate between how Goldilocks reacted and how you would react in each story event. Evaluate : Assess whether or not you think this really happened to Goldilocks. Create : Compose a song, skit, poem, or rap to convey the Goldilocks story in a new form. A Wikipedia article discusses Bloom’s Taxonomy and looks at the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears which is presented for each of the six levels of the Cognitive Process as seen on the Revised Taxonomy Table.

    38. 41. http://mlearn.pembrokeshire.ac.uk/files/final_report.pdf Geoff Elliott from Pembrokeshire College <ul><li>The project team reflected on why the project enjoyed this success and concluded: </li></ul><ul><li> Working with NEETs requires a significantly different andragogy to the typical one prevailing in further education colleges; </li></ul><ul><li>The PDA-phones enabled the tutors to keep in touch with the mLearners with their often transient life styles; </li></ul><ul><li>The NEET andragogy meant mTutors dealing with the pastoral care of mLearners in order to identify the brief opportunities for learning; and .. </li></ul><ul><li>The flexibility offered by the mTutors to mLearners to be able to study anywhere in the County at the mLearners convenience outside the normal establishments, and building confidence was key. </li></ul>
    39. 42. <ul><li>The developments to keep an eye on are the increasing use of virtual worlds, and the use of the internet on mobile devices. With regards to virtual worlds, there are two emerging open-source projects of particular interest to educators: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Croquet ( http:// opencroquet.org ): an open-source virtual world environment, co-founded by the educational technology visionary Alan Kay as an educational virtual world tool. Not only is Croquet open-source and “made for” education (both facets noticeably absent in SecondLife), but there are additional educational special interest projects, such as Edusim ( http:// edusim.greenbush.us ), which extend the functionality of this increasingly capable virtual world platform. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Alice ( http:// alice.org ): of particular interest to teachers of information technology, Alice is an open-source virtual world programming environment designed specifically to make programming engaging for young people and, in particular, girls and women. It does this by using storytelling as a metaphor for programming: by creating a “story” in Alice, students actually program a virtual world and learn programming conventions and techniques. 3D models created in Alice can be exported to Croquet. </li></ul></ul>Leonard Low
