Apps and Online Tools That Help Kids Master Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy

Share:

In an increasingly digital world, teachers are now finding ways to incorporate apps and online resources that help support students as they work through Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy.

Bloom’s Taxonomy was first devised in the 50’s, and then revised in the early 2000’s.  In one form or another it has shaped how teachers think about nourishing and engaging their students for over 60 years.  That’s no wonder, since it encourages the development of skills to help students of all ages solve problems and think critically both in and out of the classroom.  Additionally, I’ve found the verbs developed for each of the stacking levels of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy help me plan learning activities that will keep students challenged in their Zone of Proximal Development.

Creating: 

Put elements together to form a new coherent or functional whole; reorganize elements into a new pattern or structure (design a new set for a theater production, write a thesis, develop an alternative hypothesis based on criteria, invent a product, compose a piece of music, write a play). 

Evaluating: 

Make judgments based on criteria and standards (e.g., detect inconsistencies or fallacies within a process or product, determine whether a scientist’s conclusions follow from observed data, judge which of two methods is the way to solve a given problem, determine the quality of a product based on disciplinary criteria).

Analyzing:

Break material into its constituent parts and determine how the parts relate to one another and/or to an overall structure or purpose (e.g., analyze the relationship between different flora and fauna in an ecological setting; analyze the relationship between different characters in a play; analyze the relationship between different institutions in a society).

Applying:

Use information or a skill in a new situation (e.g., use Newton’s second law to solve a problem for which it is appropriate, carry out a multivariate statistical analysis using a data set not previously encountered).

Understanding:

Demonstrate comprehension through one or more forms of explanation (e.g., classify a mental illness, compare ritual practices in two different religions).

Remembering:

Retrieve, recall, or recognize relevant knowledge from long-term memory (e.g., recall dates of important events in U.S. history, remember the components of a bacterial cell).
