A New Bloom: Transforming Learning
Cochran, David; Conklin, Jack
Learning & Leading with Technology, v34 n5 p22-25 Feb 2007
This article discusses a new design for the classic Bloom's Taxonomy developed by Anderson, L. W. & Krathwohl, D. (2001), which can be used to evaluate learners' technology-enhanced experience in more powerful and critical ways. The New Bloom's Taxonomy incorporates contemporary research on learning and human cognition into its model. The original taxonomy created consensus about how to use important vocabulary as it helped educators make use of the hierarchical nature of knowledge in teaching, learning, and curriculum development. It helped teachers use objectives as tools to promote and evaluate student learning. Benjamin Bloom and his colleagues created a workable and valuable way for educators to think about objectives, talk to each other, and create curriculum. The new paradigm updates this classic taxonomy and has some very important changes that help technology-using educators even more. This updated version of the classic Bloom's Taxonomy emphasizes learners' cognitive processes and points toward technology-enhanced activities. ["A New Bloom: Transforming Learning" was written with Susannah Modin.] (Contains 3 tables and 8 resources.)
