Transcript of Bloom's Taxonomy

Comprehension builds on the ability to remember.

By organizing, comparing, translating, interpreting, giving and creating descriptions and stating ideas in one's own words, deeper understand of content can be created

Application refers to the ability to use learned material in new and concrete situations. This may include the application of such things as rules, methods, concepts, principles, laws, and theories. Learning outcomes in this area require a higher level of understanding than those under comprehension.

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy
Websites that will help teachers with each step of Bloom's taxonomy
We looked at websites and determined whether or not they were fitting and useful for that particular step

Bloom's Taxonomy
The first level is retrieving, recognizing, and recalling information. Remembering represents the lowest level in Bloom's taxonomy. It is "low" only in the sense that it comes first - it provides the basis for all "higher" cognitive activity.
The ability to break down material into its component parts. Identifying parts, analysis of relationships between parts, recognition of the organizational principles involved. Learning outcomes here represent a higher intellectual level than comprehension and application because they require an understanding of both the content and the structural form of the material.

The ability to judge the value of material for a given purpose.
The judgments are to be based on definite criteria. The student may determine the criteria or be given them.
Learning outcomes contain elements of all the other categories, plus conscious value judgments based on clearly defined criteria.
Creativity involves all of the other facets of the taxonomy. In the creative process the student/s, remembers, understands & applies knowledge, analyses and evaluates outcomes, results, successes and failures as well as processes to produce a final product.The following are some of the key terms for this aspect of the Taxonomy.

Lots of videos, even on very specific topics
Setting up "classrooms" for K-12 with videos that align to ELA and Math Common Core Standards
A lot of videos to sort through...
Huge part of our generation!
If you know how to use it, great way to relate to students and bring them in to the lessons
For the classroom, addition of "channels", specific to education, even content
A world of content...
EyePlorer (Vionto)
Really cool site - great for research
A search engine that organizes your search graphically
Allows you to look at basic facts on left of screen, while terms within the "search circle" offer suggestions for how to narrow down search
Option to drag and drop notes that you can email to yourself if you create an account

Great site to organize and find resources that are available to students and teachers

Thirteen Websites to Explore, Enjoy!
This interactive website allows to either make your own flashcards or browse the “pool” of flashcards that have already been made.
Unfortunately a lot of those websites are in a different language other than English.
Making your own flashcards is easy yet tedious. You can have the students use the flashcards themselves on the actual website, although when students type in their answer they have the power to say if it is correct or not.
The catch here is paying for the "benefits" of the website. Supposedly, if you pay the low price of $4.11 a month, then the website will be able to benefit you more by emailing your students the flashcards but only if they are a user themselves.
This website seems to be a new twist on the dictionary.
Not only do they give you the definition but they also give you “Examples” with the source cited and attached.
The users of the website can create LISTS where the word or phrase you look up is located in other peoples’ work.
This also includes “related words” to the word you are searching for. The website describes it best by saying ‘Our word relationships include synonyms, hypernyms, hyponyms, words used in the same context, a reverse dictionary, and tags.’
I do not see the relevance from an educational stand point. I am assuming dictionary.com would work just fine for whatever it is you’re looking for!
Another twist to the dictionary.
An online graphical dictionary.
I do enjoy this website; it’s a little bit harder to navigate if you are in a whole group setting.
Small group instruction or individually in the computer lab would be most efficient.
There is a key to follow which is helpful.
It will give me a brief definition. Furthermore it branches out from whichever word you're looking up to other associations or concepts such as the adjectives, nouns or verbs for fluency, derivatives, synonyms, and many more.
It’s definitely a good source, better for individual use.
Very simple and somewhat like dictionary.com.
One search line.
The unique selling point of this site is to be “as fast as a ninja”.
Just like a regular dictionary it gives you that words’ synonym, noun tense, verb tense and so on.
Spelling City
This website is a great resource for ELA
Geared towards elementary aged students.
They give you different spelling and vocabulary lists for multiple categories.
Categories such as: multiple meaning, Dolch sight words, homophones, math words, possessive nouns, science vocabulary, contractions, compound words, analogies and even state capitals.
Free games/activities.
Make your own lists up
I would recommend this website, especially for new teachers because it opens your eyes to the amount of resources there are to keep your students engaged.
Jigsaw Plant
This is great…for something to pass the time!
This isn’t a very educational website
It’s a website about puzzles, a lot of puzzles,
Create your own puzzle, using your own pictures.
This may help your fine motor skills as a child, having to put together a puzzle online isn’t the easier thing to do!
I would recommend it for a free-time computer game your children can play
This is a website where students or teachers can create 'cubes' (multiple in each 'drawer') that can contain ian immense amount of information about any given topic!
This is a program that is utilized for editing pictures. Pictures can be uploaded, adapted, changed, and saved.
My Story Maker
An elementary styled program that allows the author to both write the story and have a bit of creativity in illustrating it.
Pros and Cons

Step-by-step process

Very elementary-not appropriate for higher grades

A search engine for, you guessed it, timelines!

Would be an interesting idea for an assignment

Website is an interesting tool used to build understanding of vocabulary

Each word is coupled with a video, picture and story/sentences where the word is used in context

A little bit elementary, but a cool feature is the ability for users to create and save lists, say for a class they are struggling with!
A great tool for people like me who hate writing down what they're thinking!
Brainstorming tool
Enter creates new child bubble, tab makes a new thread
Can edit text, add pictures/links, drag and position your webs, and then save or print them
Again, very basic, but useful function
GREAT photo editor!
Adaptable for Grade K-12
Beneficial for Technology or Art Class
Hosting platform for PowerPoint presentations
Thought this would be a great resource, but, not very many of the educational PowerPoint presentations are very good
I would not recommend this site
Huge number of presentations, lots are not in English, and those relating to education seem to be pretty poor
Not available anymore
A bit pointless for school
VERY time consuming
Jeopardy Labs
One of my favorite websites
Loved Jeopardy games as a student
This site lets you create and then run your own Jeopardy game or browse the thousands created by others!
Periodic Table of Videos
If you are a science teacher, or specifically a chemistry teacher, this is a great resource
The professor look like a cartoon of Albert Einstein
The videos are simply a more interesting way to present the elements and their properties!
Design your own survey or choose from a template
Choose how to distribute and collect responses

A great tool for any teacher looking to add a daily writing component

Very easy to use
