Using Digital Bloom's to Transform Teaching
  • Capella University says:
    This site contains two excellent pieces related to Digital Bloom's. The first is the suggestion to include the digital tool within the learning objective (e.g., Using Google Docs, the students will…"). The second is a document that enables you to check your lesson components and activities against digital tools, as they are correlated to the taxonomy.
  • Capella University says:
    Reflecting on instruction is the first step toward improving it. This video tutorial focuses on self-assessing the use of Digital Bloom's in instruction. Ask yourself: Do I use Digital Bloom's verbs? Do I use technology that corresponds to the level of the task the students are doing?
  • Capella University says:
    This site has a small but powerful collection of Digital Bloom's resources. The first one on the list, for example, is a "cheat sheet for teachers". Click on that link, and go to a document that has the Bloom's levels with lists of digital tools, apps, and websites that correspond with each level. This would be helpful in planning instruction that reaches higher levels of thinking through the use of technology.
  • Capella University says:
    Teachers are always on the lookout for ways to incorporate technology into their lessons in a meaningful way. This video tutorial provides several strategies for doing just that, with Digital Bloom's in mind. Strategies include reflecting, leveling up, consulting, and adapting.

    You may think if you seen one article on Bloom's, you've seen them all. But THIS blog post features a collection of links to some of the best teaching resources on the internet for using Bloom's taxonomy in the classroom. Be sure to check out the link to the Educational Origami wiki that tells about how to relate technology to Bloom's!
  • Capella University says:
    Digital Bloom's is a taxonomy for the age of technology. In this video tutorial, the 6 levels - remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating - are correlated with digital tools and activities such as posting, commenting, tagging, tweeting, and blogging. Use the pyramid graphic to locate the digital activities that you do in class to ensure that you are reaching all levels with your students' digital work.
