A Digital Learner's Blooms Taxonomy

Greetings all..A colleague forwarded a link to this wiki: Digital Verision of Bloom's Taxonomy and I thought it would be good to share with everyone.

I have spent a lot of time perusing the site and am finding it useful as a reflection tool as I plan the my instruction using some of the newer educational technology. I have been thinking about (and planning) my collaborative project with Doug and I have found that the site helps is helping me to refine my vision of what I want the final product to look like.

Also, I find it is helping me in my conversations with my peers who resist using technology due to their frustration at seeing students merely copy and paste.

With that in mind I think the website above is a good way to begin thinking about higher level uses of instructional technology and help teachers reflect on what kind of digital products they would like for their students.

Anyway, I hope everyone finds it useful...

Oh, one final thought.. When you are using technology in instruction, are you Searching, Locating, and Finding, OR are you Animating, Publishing, and Directing?

I found this digital Bloom's in the past, but definitely appreciate the reminder. What level(s) of the Digital Bloom's do you find you and your students achieve?
