Web Tools to Use with Bloom's Digital Taxonomy

 Bloom's Taxonomy is one of the major themes here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. We have been extensively sharing resources on it and we have a separate section where you can access and check all the resources we  have posted so far.



A refresher for you, Blooms traditional taxonomy which was published sometime in the middle of the last century was revised in 2001 and henceforth was labelled Blooms Revised Taxonomy. This revision is a little bit different from the original one in that it replaces nouns with verbs and places emphasis on the process of creating by putting it on the top of the thinking continuum.

 Since the emergence of the Revised Taxonomy, several educators have been adding to it expanding thus its scope and making it even more comprehensible by integrating technology into it. Andrew Churches is one of the first guys who was behind the marriage of revised taxonomy and technology; a marriage which resulted in " digital Blooms Taxonomy ". If you want to learn more about this digital taxonomy here is a great poster to check.

The interactive graphic below is another attempt but this time not from Andrew but from Schoology to integrate different web tools into Bloom's thinking levels. Here is a brief round up of these tools:
