Bloom’s Taxonomy and Learning Games

Knowledge Guru

Use Bloom’s Taxonomy to help you craft your objectives and accurately assess what level of cognitive skill learners need to use to produce your goal. Bloom’s levels don’t function in isolation of one another, even though we tend to think of them as doing so. However, Bloom’s provides a reasonable way of organizing the learning experience so learners can build skills in steps. The Drive authoring tool uses Bloom’s Taxonomy to ensure good objectives.

Applying The Basics Of Bloom’s Taxonomy In e-learning


One of the approaches to delivering the right training is by applying Bloom’s taxonomy in e-learning. Bloom’s taxonomy is an old concept that has been in existence since 1956 purposely for traditional classroom training. One of the roles of Bloom’s Taxonomy in e-learning is to deliver a course learning objective. It can also help to determine learners’ behavior that can influence the learning objectives.

Learning with 'e's

Bloom's Taxonomy has been hailed as a template for best practice in course design. Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy is probably the best known and most used, and is organised into six levels of learning rising from simple to complex. Benjamin Bloom and his colleagues identified three distinct domains of learning, namely the Cognitive (thinking - knowing, reasoning), Affective (feeling - emotions, attitudes) and Psychomotor (doing - physical skills, practice) domains.

While the usage of Bloom’s Taxonomy (BT) to nail the learning outcomes has been used for training over several decades, the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy (RBT) brings in an added dimension that enables it to be used more effectively to design eLearning. In this blog, I touch upon the basics of Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy (in contrast to Bloom’s Taxonomy). What are the changes that were made to Bloom’s Taxonomy to create the Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy? Introduction.

ADDIE is the Scavenger of Instructional Design, Not the Bitch Goddess (or Blooming Beyond Bloom)

Big Dog, Little Dog

One of the learning tools that is perhaps most often plugged into ADDIE is Bloom's Taxonomy. While Bloom's Taxonomy has been quite useful in that it has extended learning from simply remembering to more complex cognitive structures, such as analyzing and evaluating, newer models have come along. Revised Bloom's Taxonomy. In The Need for a Revision of Bloom’s Taxonomy , Marzano describes six levels: Level 6: Self-system. Level 3: Analysis (Cognitive System).

We have also seen the six levels of the cognitive domain of Bloom’s Taxonomy, viz. Today, we will examine the Affective domain which deals with behaviors and emotional areas (attitudes). The Affective domain categorizes learner behaviors into five levels. Examples of behavior at this level are listening to the instructor and asking for and remembering the names of the parts of a machine. The verbs used to indicate behaviors at this stage are as follows.

How Do Serious Games Work in a Large Enterprise?

Knowledge Guru

The majority of corporate learning content involves Bloom’s verbs like identify, remember, understand, etc. Serious games work by unifying the cognitive and affective domains. Most corporate learning is dominated by the cognitive domain, tapping into our capacity to think, plan, and ascertain. eLearning does an excellent job of exercising these cognitive skills… but they are not the sole driver of job performance.

Situated Cognition Theory. The Situated Cognition Theory was first published in 1989, but its principles are still just as applicable today. ADDIE tackles eLearning development rather than learning behaviors. Bloom’s Taxonomy Of Learning Objectives. While some contemporary theories focused on pure memorization of facts, Bloom focused on the cognitive domain.

Setting Meaningful and Measurable Learning Objectives: The importance of goals


The most useful references for this purpose are the original Bloom’s Taxonomy of 1956 and the revised version of 2001; both of these can be leveraged to produce clear, measurable, and meaningful statements that define the learning objectives. These theories, which are equally applicable for setting eLearning objectives , are based on a set of cognitive learning levels that training aspires to produce in a learner.

Writing Learning Objectives—Part 2

The way to ensure that a learning objective is measurable is to use an action verb when describing the terminal behavior. Because we cannot see into the brain of the learner, the goal is to find verbs that represent learning or a change in cognitive capacity. Bloom’s Taxonomy. I really can’t end a discussion on learning objectives without doing you the favor of mentioning Bloom’s Taxonomy. Measurable Learning Objectives.

Classical philosophy posits that any meaningful learning must combine an existential knowledge of the self alongside the cognitive domain. Microlearning achieves deeper retention by using short bursts of targeted learning to optimize cognitive load into the working memory.

We have also looked at the six levels of the Cognitive domain of Bloom’ Taxonomy , which is concerned with mental skills (knowledge). We have also examined the Affective domain of the Taxonomy which deals with behaviors (attitudes). Before we proceed further, it is important to mention that though the Psychomotor domain is considered a part of Bloom’s Taxonomy, little work was done in this area by Bloom and his associates.

Finding the Most Effective Course For Your Learning Objective


Today, reaching employees and positively changing their attitudes and behaviors is becoming increasingly difficult. Positively change their attitudes and behaviors. In a review of the science of learning, based on the seminal work in the field led by Dr. Benjamin Bloom back in the 1950s and 60s (i.e. Bloom’s Taxonomy), there are three domains in which learners attain information: Cognitive (learning facts and figures).

The Evolution of Instructional Design

CommLab India

Skinner’s Theory of Operant Conditioning (1958) states that learning results in changes in overt behavior. The theory led educators to think that human learning can be enhanced if reinforcements are carefully controlled, to elicit the desired behavior. Programmed instruction shifted the focus to outcome behavior of the learner rather than how the teacher delivers the instruction. Bloom’s Taxonomy of the Cognitive Domain was published in 1956.

On the other hand, if the course is aimed at improving customer-handling skills of the sales-people, content must be designed with the intention of enhancing performance by changing learner behaviors. Benjamin Bloom, an American psychologist, proposed six levels of learning (later revised by Dr. Lorin Anderson), viz. A learning objective needs to “match” the corresponding level of cognition. A good customized e-learning course goes a long way in meeting the needs of learners.

Learning Goals: The Why and the How


Think: Bloom’s Taxonomy. Examine the following cognitive strategies and their associated “action” words (verbs) you can use in your learning goal. This not only specifies the knowledge/skill/behavior/attitude learned by the learner but also how it can be measured. Perhaps the best part about communicating learning goals to the learner is the explicit skill, knowledge or behavior the learner will undergo, after completing the course or a section of the course.

Once youve hooked them in, then you can let them know what theyll be able to do afterward, but while if that were done *really* well, I still think its better to hook them in viscerally before you go for the cognitive realization of what theyll learn.
