To fit the needs of today's classroom by employing more outcome-oriented language, workable objectives, and changing nouns to active verbs, Anderson and Krathwohl have adapted Bloom's taxonomy. Most notably, knowledge has been converted to remember. In addition, the highest level of development is create rather than evaluate.
In any classroom, on any campus, all students will not have the same learning style. However, they may find that one style is more dominant. Additionally, most learners can process information delivered in a variety of modes and formats. Thus, effective educators create activities or lessons that appeal to more than one learning style so it is important they recognize and understand student learning styles.
Authentic assessments may change the way the student's view learning, and lessen the pressure and/or reasons to cheat
This is a collection of Web 2.0 tools organized into an interactive pyramid of the Bloom's taxonomy levels of Remembering, Understanding, Applying, Analyzing, Evaluating, and Creating. A good visual reminder of both the Bloom's levels and Web 2.0 tools developed by a "Programming Manager" at the University of Southern Indiana.

Universal Design Principles1. Provide multiple representation of information.2. Provide multiple means of expression.3. Provide multiple means of engagement.UDL principles provide flexibility andmeet the needs of all learners.
Learning Styles words (linguistic intelligence) numbers or logic (logical-mathematical intelligence) pictures (spatial intelligence) music (musical intelligence) self-reflection (intrapersonal intelligence) a physical experience (bodily-kinesthetic intelligence) a social experience (interpersonal intelligence), and/or an experience in the natural world. (naturalist intelligence)
How Can you DifferentiateInstruction and Assessment? Ask yourself, “What do I want my students to know, understand, or do?” ◦ Content – what do students learn – how can they access ◦ Process – how do students learn – how do students make sense of the learning ◦ Product – the way in which students demonstrate knowledge, how students will show what they learned
Tying it all together with Web2.0 eDifferentiation – using technology to meet the diverse needs of students ◦ Use a variety of instructional approaches to modify content, process, and/or produces in response to learning readiness, interest, and learning profile of academically diverse students Consider allowing students to make choices about how they want to demonstrate knowledge - Create
