Bloom's Revised Taxonomy: Cognitive processes and levels of knowledge matrix

Big Dog, Little Dog

While Bloom''s original cognitive taxonomy did mention three levels of knowledge or products that could be processed (shown below), they were not discussed very much and remained one-dimensional. Procedural - How to do something, methods of inquiry, and criteria for using skills, algorithms, techniques, and methods. In Krathwohl and Anderson''s revised version, the authors combine the cognitive processes with the above three levels of knowledge to form a matrix.

A simple, yet effective mantra. Rather than having a results-oriented approach to problem design, a more effective way is to give them open ended problems in the form of ‘what-if’ scenarios. Again, a simple yet tried and tested method to enhance engagement. Cognitive Load Theory warns against the dangers of overloading learners with too much information. Instructional design is certainly not an easy business.

I do not think it will always equal the most effective or efficient means of helping people learn. If your implementation does not include integration with other learning components, the game will be less effective as a learning solution than it otherwise could be. They designed a highly effective multi-method approach to helping people learn and remember. 6) The more effort required to learn to play the game, the less cognitive space available to learn the content.
