Digital Bloom's Visual


I was playing around today trying to create a visual representaion of a Digital version of the new Bloom's hierarchy.  I'm either going to link the images in this illustration directly and publish on a wiki or I will come back here and provide all the links in a list format, separated  by Bloom's level.  If you're interested in "Digital Bloom's," you can search for "Bloom," "Bloom's" or "taxonomy" in my Delicious/Diigo tags:  http://delicious.com/mikefisher821 or http://www.diigo.com/user/mikefisher821

  1. Hi Mike - adore the revolutionary concept of Digigogy and of the Web 2.0 tools included. The only suggestion that comes to mind is the archaic, crumbling or flattening pyramid perhaps better represented as a soft and gentle, fluffy, growing cloud

  3. I like the cloud idea too...hmmmmm...perhaps I'm heading back to the drawing board!

  4. Hello! Great visual! The only suggestion I might make would be to consider putting Diigo into either the analysing or evaluating section too, since marking up and commenting on sites (not just bookmarking) is a big part of Diigo. It is a more interactive tool than some of the other social bookmarking tools. IMHO, anyhow!

  5. Mike, This visual is great. I think too many people see the internet and the tools it provides as something far less than higher order thinking. Your categorizing these "tools" into Blooms Levels gives people a framework or starting point to reform their opinions on the internet and plan better instruction using the internet.

  6. Mike, I like this visual too and would love to use it with my "school technology teams". (Some of them won't be as tech savvy as we begin our learning process). Can we put together a wiki or some other type of information to give them ideas on each tool? You could get a group collaboration going!

  7. Nice, I too would move diigo up to understanding, or analyzing or evaluating as it's far more powerful a tool when used that way.

    Only one other thought, where is "collaboration" in Bloom's? Would it be a third dimension?

  8. I love this! Thanks for sharing it. I aim to further explore the use of these tools within my own school. It makes great sense to apply web2 to what we already know about student thinking - and our teaching and learning experiences. Thanks again!

  9. Mike: I too love this. I am wondering if you could define some of these tools. I know most but there are a few that I would like to check out based on their position on Blooms. Like the "SU" logo on the bottom, and the round logo above Voicethread. Thanks for this.

  10. Hi Mike,

    I think this is a misapplication. Bloom's Taxonomy was never intended for this, and therefore does not fit. Sure, you *can* create using some of those tools, but creating something out of nothing was not the intent of Bloom's Taxonomy (nor the Anderson revision, as you've used here). The taxonomy was designed to categorize test questions.

    As in, when one learns about haiku poems, the creating section would require one to write their own haiku. An oversimplified answer, but nonetheless valid because it requires the synthesis of the knowledge learned about what constitutes a haiku.

    Me simply creating a wiki and putting digital graffiti on it does not satisfy the requirements of Bloom's, I'm afraid.

    Not to say the list of applications isn't useful, but take Bloom out of the picture and just call it a cloud of 2.0 or something.

  11. Interesting comment above from Chris. Blooms, former and revised, are used as a framework for cognitive levels of tasks- test questions, performance-based tasks, etc. What is interesting is not the misapplication, probably not an accurate term in my opinion, but more so a morphing of Bloom's. What this hierarchy that Mike has created now seems to pigeon hole specific technologies in various levels of cognitive difficulty.

    Last week when I was talking to my undergraduate preservice teachers about the Revised Bloom's and technology one point that they kept coming back to was a technology (alone) does not constitute a higher level or lower level task. Blogs can be used (and are commonly used by K-12 students) for lower level knowledge, just as YouTube could be used as a springboard for a higher level task or a lower level task as Mike has characterized it.

    Mike, I commend you for putting this out there and really I think this topic is worthy of lots of discussion as we try to reconcile this use of technology and the need to maintain rigorous tasks for our students.

  13. Mike, I think this is a great visual tool. I amplanning on showing my year 4 and 5 students to help them and their parents understand the reasons why we blog and use web2.0 tools.

  14. Ok, good idea, but I am not sure about including go2web20 in "applying" category I am also not sure how Skype comes in 'understanding'.

  15. Thanks for the visual...does anyone have a list of all of the icons? I don't recognize a couple of them and I would like to make hyperlinks for each.

  16. Thank you Mike, for creating a triangle of digigogy. I will add it to my collection of triangles. It is aligned with the Bruner's triangle of knowledge - growing from facts to concepts, generalization and metacognition - and Bloom's taxonomy of teaching objectives, and A. Churches' triangle of LOTs/HOTs activities.

  17. Thanks Mike,
    This model is fantastic, it is most certainly a Bloom's model for 21st century teaching, this is how we encourage creative, collaborative, lifelong learners. I agree with the suggestion posted above to represent your model without limits as a soft and gentle, fluffy, growing cloud. Well done! :-)

  18. and your new model on http://visualblooms.wikispaces.com/
    is even better :-) thanks so much!

  19. This makes me stop and think about what I do and how it fits together with what I already know and that is what it is all about after all. Good Job!

  23. IT companies are gaining popularity with every passing day and tend to grow at a rapid speed. Software development procedures are getting purifies and verified with a brilliant merge of existing and new technologies everyday. Due to the massive demand of automation and perfection, many organizations are now opting outsourcing software development in order to meet their business needs.
