Blooms Taxonomy Prezi
Transcript of Blooms Taxonomy Prezi
(teaching theory) with several levels of learning skills:
They are further classified into two categories:
Lower Order Thinking Skills (LOTS)
Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS)

Old Theory vs. New Theory
The biggest change made to the revised model is the use of
, rather than
to discuss the key concepts about these learning skills.
Verbs for phrasing how students go through different learning processes, so it is easier to generate a workable model of those skills.
For instance, you could make a model if you said something akin to
"Student will be able to..."
Then use a learning skill, such as
While creating a set of objectives like
"Student will be able to
the data collected about annual volumes of precipitation in local cities and differentiate between climate types."

To demonstrate how these skills can be applied, take the following example:
A teacher gives a student an online assignment to find two sound or media clips of two different U.S. State Birds and write a short response about them. With these learning skills, the student could then...
This modeled assignment and ones like it assesses the skill levels of a student.
Demonstrates not only how they can utilize these skills, but also how competent and comfortable the student is with using technological tools.
By becoming aware of how Bloom's Taxonomy applies to assignments, a teacher can create rubrics for their students and test their abilities.
What is Bloom's Taxonomy?
Andrew Churches taxonomy map shows how much more effective the use of verbs is rather than nouns for key terms.
As they are defined in the chart, these skills are integral in participating in a digital society and using technology effectively.

by themselves or with a classmate about the assignment and what they learned from it, including the information they gathered, complete with links and a written description.
Who created this Learning Theory?
This theory was first developed by Benjamin Bloom in 1956. It was later revised by Bloom's protégé, Lorin Anderson, to have new levels of learning skills:
These were discussed at length in the book
A Taxonomy for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment
, which was published in 2001
Bloom's taxonomy stems from his larger theory about Domains of Knowledge (Psychomotor, Affective, and Cognitive), which he developed at the University of Chicago.
Models of Bloom's Taxonomy
Others, like Rex Heer of Iowa University, created models to show how the levels of learning skills of Bloom's Taxonomy apply directly to real world situations.
Oliver Wendell Holmes and Art Costa's Three Story Intellect interprets the levels of learning skills in their own models.
