We are constantly thinking of ways to provide students with learning experiences that promotes deeper learning and understanding. There is a myriad of information on ‘Blooms Taxonomy’ original and revised, located at our finger tips and as we search to find the perfect poster, article or web site. However, the message remains the same… in 1956 Benjamin Bloom along with his colleagues, created a framework categorising educational goals on a multitiered scale for teachers to promote in learning and students to develop higher forms of thinking through these domains of learning.
As we know, the development of ICT has changed the way students are learning. Not completely, but technology now provides our 21st century students with opportunities to apply new skills and tools to investigate, imagine and explore real world concepts. Reflecting the shift, Blooms taxonomy now has a digital version.
‘This taxonomy is not about the tools and technologies, these are just the medium, instead it is about using these tools to achieve, recall, understanding, application, analysis, evaluation and creativity’ (Churches, 2009).
