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. Most complex tasks require us to use multiple levels within the taxonomy. Bloom’s Taxonomy categorizes learning into six levels of thinking, with each level adding complexity. The original taxonomy is from 1956, with a revised taxonomy developed in 2001. Bloom’s Taxonomy and Game Types.

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.

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.

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 which can be used to indicate behaviors at this stage are: acknowledge.

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. Veronica Alexander talks about how the taxonomy has been successfully used as a template for learning programmes. The learner can only be measured if they can demonstrate a behavior that provides evidence of their knowledge or skill.

A Brief History of Instructional Design

Origin Learning

Consequently, training programs which were based on the principles of learning, instruction and human behavior, began to be developed. Mager emphasized the importance of learning objectives to include desired behavior, learning condition, and assessment.Writing objectives, even today is influenced by these 3 elements. Behavioral objectives got another boost when in 1956, Bloomberg Benjamin and his colleagues developed the “Taxonomy of EducationalObjectives”.

The Right Stuff: Jane on Objectives

Devotees of Bloom’s taxonomy will argue that learner performance like “listing” and “describing” can constitute what he called ”enabling” objectives. That may valid, but they should not be the only objectives: Employees are rarely asked to “list” or “describe” anything, so it’s critical to move on to behaviors closer to desired performance, not just knowledge.

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.

Alternatives to Kirkpatrick


While the Kirkpatrick taxonomy is something of a sacred cow in training circles—and much credit goes to Donald Kirkpatrick for being the first to attempt to apply intentional evaluation to workplace training efforts—it is not the only approach. Apart from being largely atheoretical and ascientific (hence, 'taxonomy', not 'model' or 'theory'), several critics find the Kirkpatrick taxonomy seriously flawed.

The Evolution of Instructional Design

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.
