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

Wizcabin

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. As an educator, I’m sure you know one or two things about Bloom’s Taxonomy. Evaluation.

Bloom’s Taxonomy and Online Learning

Growth Engineering

Bloom’s Taxonomy is a concept you’ll come across pretty quickly once you start exploring the world of learning. Although you’ll normally see it in the context of teaching children, Bloom’s Taxonomy applies to learning at all levels. Where does Bloom’s Taxonomy come in? Bloom’s Taxonomy is a list of verbs that you should be using for learning objectives in each step. Depending on your industry, you could create exercises on your LMS or host simulations online.

Evaluating eLearning

Web Courseworks

Often times I am asked by training managers to evaluate their eLearning initiatives and specifically, types of eLearning courseware. At first, it may seem like a simple task in the broad view of it, but when you begin to scratch the surface, you find there are a lot of nuances that go into the evaluation. This leads me to begin by asking a few questions: what is the purpose of the evaluation, who are the key stakeholders, and how extensive should the evaluation be?

Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy: Examples from the Online World

Vikas Joshi on Interactive Learning

Online collaboration between learners is the bedrock of Bloom's Digital Taxonomy. It talks about using various collaboration tools to achieve the 6 learning stages namely - knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation. Knowledge The first stage of Bloom's learning taxonomy deals with remembering - retrieving, recalling or recognizing knowledge from memory. One great digital example of evaluation is blog commenting.

Making the Best Use of Learning Objectives for Training Evaluation

CommLab India

How can you evaluate the participants of your online course? The learners are asked to execute the steps involved in creating the invoice in a simulated environment, which can be used to determine whether they are able to perform the task within the specified time period. Benjamin Bloom, an American psychologist, proposed six levels of learning (later revised by Dr. Lorin Anderson), viz. remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating.

Six Game-Based Training Models To Achieve Your Performance Objectives

The Game Agency

The study “A Meta-Analytic Examination of the Instructional Effectiveness of Computer-Based Simulation Games” found that simulation game-based training results in 20% higher self-efficiency, 9% greater retention, 11% greater declarative knowledge and 14% greater procedural knowledge than instructional training methods. Finally, there are exploration games that improve evaluation skills and simulation games that help users learn creation skills.

Regardless of the eLearning type: simulation game, serious game, branching scenario or simple interactivity, the RETAIN model will assure you that you are on the right track. Also, simulation activities created using authoring tools like Adobe Captivate take learners closer to performance. Conclusion The RETAIN model is often the main evaluation or development criteria behind any eLearning program.

You might be familiar with Bloom’s Taxonomy. Have I been too brutal to Bloom? I’m not convinced that we need to minutely examine whether our activity requires “analyzing” or “evaluating.” ” By simulating complex, real-world situations, we can’t help but cover several Bloom categories. It’s easy and tempting to write activities that test whether learners know something.

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.

Hence, this targets Bloom’s taxonomy at the third level, which is application. A moderate level helps the learner evaluate a situation and take decisions. This targets the third level of Bloom’s taxonomy, that is, application. For example, medical training such as surgeries and flight simulations can be taught through this level of interaction. It includes software simulations and multiple-choice, drag-and-drop, and other kinds of activities.
