  1. 1. Bloom’s'Digital'Taxonomy:' The'Swiss'Army'Knife'of'21st'century' learning! Mark Richardson, ICT Coordinator Creating Understanding Remembering Evaluating Analysing Applying http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Swiss_Army_Knife_Wenger_Opened_20050627.jpg
  2. 2. What’s the purpose of this session? • Think about the teaching and learning that happens in your classroom. • How can you organise teaching and learning in a way that • Embraces Digital Citizenship? • Engages Students? • Demonstrates Sound Pedagogy? • Embraces 21st Century Learning? • It contains students and devices! • The year is 2013! • Keeps some of the old, while strongly supporting the new?
  3. 3. So what is 21st Century Teaching and Learning? • Lots of different definitions. My definition is simple, it is the 5 C’s • Finding Digital Content [and Curating it]. • Critical Thinking about that content. • Communicating [F2F and online]. • Collaborating and Creating using technology. • Digital Citizenship, being a safe and ethical user of the internet.
  4. 4. A really useful curriculum model for 21st century teaching and learning. Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy
  5. 5. Old Bloom’s & New Bloom’s Bloom, 1956 Anderson & Krathwohl, 2001

  17. 17. Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy & Computers The DEECD eduSTAR image
  18. 18. What’s eduSTAR? All schools have computers that have a variety of both licenced and free or open source software [FOSS]. In DEECD schools this software is bundled under the name eduSTAR.There are Windows and Mac versions There are currently over 80 software applications available on the eduSTAR [Windows] software list.The broad range of applications covers: animation, concept and Mind Mapping, digital video and image creation, drawing and painting, interactive curricular resources, logic and problem-solving, 3D modelling and game-making, presentation and multimedia tools, sound and music making, thinking skills, typing tutors, web authoring tools and writing tools. For complete lists see http://epotential.education.vic.gov.au/showcase/edustar_win/list_win and http://epotential.education.vic.gov.au/showcase/edustar_mac/list_mac The next two slides will concentrate on using the software that is always loaded with the operating system or using free or open source software.This means that, as the software is free, if the schools you are working in don't have the software on their computers, hopefully you can get the school technician to load it for you! You can also load it freely on your home computer to play with.
  19. 19. What if I don’t know how to use the eduSTAR software? • Allow students to use and share their expertise • DEECD ePotential Digital Learning Showcase • Sandpit time http://epotential.education.vic.gov.au/showcase/edustar_win http://epotential.education.vic.gov.au/showcase/edustar_mac

  35. 35. What sort of thinking skills are in your planning? Let’s audit! • You need: • Lesson plans or unit planners • Six different colored highlighters • Print out the next six slides, so that you have an easy reference as to the Thinking Skills 21st Century Skills Remembering in Understanding Applying Analysing Evaluating Creating &
  36. 36. What sort of thinking skills are in your planning? • Use these colored highlighters for each thinking skill. Remembering Understanding Applying Analysing Evaluating Creating
  37. 37. What sort of thinking skills are in your planning? • Read through your lesson plans or unit planners. • When you see evidence of a or a activity listed highlight it with the appropriate color. • When you have finished what do you notice? • Is there a good balance between lower order and higher order thinking skills? • Or do some adjustments need to be made? Thinking Skill 21st Century Skill
  38. 38. Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy & Mind mapping • Add some activities you use to the appropriate layer of Bloom’s Bloom’s Remembering Understanding Applying Analysing Evaluating Creating
  39. 39. Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy & Questioning • Great questioning should encourage the use of lower order and higher order skills in answers by students. • Questions which build on lower order thinking skills should come first. • This will provide a scaffold for students to answer with higher order skills in answers. • Modelling of questions and appropriate answers by teachers is important.Teach the language of great answers!
  40. 40. Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy & Questioning • This whole topic needs some more unpacking at another time! • Useful links: http://www.uni.edu/coe/sites/default/files/wysiwyg/BloomRevisedTaxonomy.pdf http://daretodifferentiate.wikispaces.com/file/view/NoelleCombsInquiryLesson.pdf http://www.decd.sa.gov.au/assessment/pages/assessmentstrategies/taxonomy/?reFlag=1
  41. 41. Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy & Questioning • What are the six levels on Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy? • What are the thinking skills that relate to applying? • Can you think of one way of using Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy in your planning? • What value do you think that Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy could bring to you teaching?
  42. 42. Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy & Questioning • What is the difference between analysing and evaluating? • Why do you think that creating is at the top of Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy? • What are the 21st century skills that relate to evaluating? • Would you need to modify Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy to make it more useful?
