I found that Bloom’s Digital Taxanomy that share by David Jones in Week 5 study desk is quiet important. Therefore, I would like to reflect and share my thoughts about this model.
What is Bloom’s Digital Taxanomy?
According to the information that share by David Jones, Bloom Digital Taxanomy isn’t about the tools or technologies rather it is about using these to facilitate learning. Outcomes on rubrics are measured by competence of use and most importantly the quality of the process or product. (Educational, 2013) For example, bookmarking a resource is of no value if the resource is inappropriate, invalid, out of date or inaccurate.
As David has share Kathy Schrock’s blogspot on Bloom Taxonomy, she did come out the idea of the “interlocking of the cognitive processes” or the “Cogs of Cognition” instead of triangle shape for Bloomin’ apps projects. In Blooming apps project, there are different taxonomic levels where interlock with each others such as remembering, understanding, applying, analysing, evaluating and creating.
