Bloom with web based apps

  1. 1. Bloom’s taxonomy
  2. 2. What is a taxonomy Taxonomy” simply means “classification” Bloom’s aim was to classify - forms of learning - levels or steps of learning.
  3. 3. Who is Bloom?? In 1956 Benjamin Bloom, an educational psychologist at the University of Chicago, proposed his Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Blooms Taxonomy represents the process of learning. It is simplified but essentially represents how we learn.
  4. 4. The three forms or domains oflearning:  Cognitive  Affective  Psychomotor
  5. 5. Three forms or domains oflearning:• Cognitive: mental skills (Knowledge)• Affective: growth in feelings (Attitudes)• Psychomotor: manual/physical skills (Skills)
  6. 6. Cognitive domainDivided into 6 categories/degrees of difficulty
  7. 7. Bloom’s Steps
  8. 8. Blooms taxonomy
  9. 9. Bloom’s Taxonomy Cover the lower steps before addressing the higher levels

  12. 12. Bloom’s taxonomy at work … This is a site where somebody has done the research and identified web based applications that give learners the opportunity to develop their higher order thinking skills
  13. 13. Verbs Activity Each table will have  a graphic template of the levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy  An envelope of Verbs Match the verbs with the corresponding level on the diagram
  14. 14. Review of learning Work out and map what we have done in this activity to Bloom’s taxonomy
  15. 15. Application When might you use what you have learned about Bloom’s taxonomy??
  16. 16. Psychomotor domain(Simpson 1972)Use of motor skills and includescoordination,physical movement
  17. 17. Psychomotor domainDevelopment of these skills areasRequires practiceIs measured in terms of precision speed techniques
  18. 18. Affective domainWay in which we dealwith feelings, values,motivations ,enthusiasms
