In an age of digital media, where learners create, remix and share their own content, an overhaul of Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy was long overdue. Yesterday I posted a critique of Bloom's Cognitive Taxonomy and argued that it is outmoded in the digital age. This is not surprising, because Anderson is one of Bloom's former students, and Bloom was steeped in the behaviourist tradition. Neither Bloom's nor Anderson's taxonomies can achieve this.
