Bloom's Taxonomy and ICT Tools

by frances 29. March 2010 11:41

I have just organised for my student teachers a Learning Activity involving Learning Styles and ICTs. In researching for this lecture, I came across this wonderful material about Bloom's Taxonomy and ICT Tools. This same material was reported in Tech&Learning in a simplified manner as "Bloom's Taxonomy Blooms Digitally" - it is set out in a very tidy manner.

I love the fact that so many of the Web 2.0 Tools are Free or Open Source Software [FOSS] - this is great news for teachers!

The ICT Tool Category within "Bloom's Taxonomy and ICT Tools" article includes Word Processing, Presentation Tools, Desktop Publishing, Geographical Information Systems, Instant Messaging, Audio Tools, Video Tools, Mind Mapping Tools, Graphics tools, Project Tools, and, Modelling Tools. Although this article was reported in 2008 it still has relevant "possible tools" for each category.

As teachers, you can make this listing of relevant ICT Tools up to date by using Jane Hart's Directory (2009 & currently being updated daily the 2010 Tools).

Jane's 12 categories are: Instructional tools; Live tools; Document and presentation tools; Blogging, web & wiki tools; Image, audio & video tools; Communication tools; Micro-blogging tools & Twitter Apps; More collaborative tools; Social networking and collaboration spaces; Personal productivity tools; Browsers, Players & Readers; and, Mobile Tools.

Jane has listed hundreds of Web 2.0 Tools to use within the classroom and for training purposes! It really is any exciting place to be as a teacher.

As far as WebQuests go, as a teacher you need to make sure that you have more of the Higher Order Thinking Skills [HOTS] Web 2.0 tools present.
