E-Learning Design Part 5: Learning through Creating (Blooms 21)

CDSM

At CDSM, we draw on a range of theories – from the past and the present – to form the method and practice behind our award-winning e-learning. In an earlier post in this series ( E-Learning Design Part 2: Observable and Measurable Outcomes ), we looked at the influence of Bloom’s taxonomy (1956) on our e-learning. What is Blooms 21? Consequently, Blooms becomes a ‘step pyramid’ that one must arduously try to climb with your learners.

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.

Bloom reheated

Learning with 'e's

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. He places 'Creating' at the apex of the pyramid, with 'Evaluating' beneath it.

Redefining the Taxonomy of eLearning

CommLab India

Instructional designers have for long fallen back on the celebrated Bloom’s classification system, created for traditional classroom training, to define their learning objectives and create courses that meet the needs of learners. Taking the differing requirements of e-learning and evolving training pedagogies into account, the classification was reconstructed by Loren Anderson, a former student of Bloom in 2001, to incorporate modern approaches of training that reflect current needs.
