BLOOM’S DIGITAL TAXONOMY AND ITS APPLICATIONS FULYA MÜLDÜR CAROLINE GENÇEL MERYEM YILDIRIM ZEYNEP ARGIÇ MERVE SÖZMEN KATE BURRIS
As we were doing our research and progressing up the Bloom’s ladder we realized that ‘collaboration’ was the fundamental keyword in all of the levels. WHY?
<ul><li>In 21st century classes where most students are digital natives, there’s an opportunity to collaborate with: </li></ul><ul><li>your students </li></ul><ul><li>other teachers at school </li></ul><ul><li>other schools from all over the world </li></ul>
Here are the levels of Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy and our examples:
REMEMBERING The focus in this level is retrieving information. Students use websites like Google and Ask.com to search. However, this search doesn’t go beyond the key word or the term they are looking for.
UNDERSTANDING In the digital world, “Comprehension” or “Understanding” takes the form of advanced/Boolean searching, blog journaling, categorizing and subscribing.
APPLYING In this level students start using the knowledge so they can initiate, operate and manipulate hardware and applications.
ANALYSING At this level, a lot of data is available to students, but much of it isn’t differentiated so it’s crucial for students to validate their information by tagging and linking on the web.
EVALUATING In this level, students highly collaborate with other parties while commenting and replying to postings on the web. After students examine the information in context, they evaluate and reply.
CREATING In this level students mix technology heavily with their creativity and start creating films, videos, vodcasts, podcasts, wikis and blogs.
