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.

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’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.

3] Bloom’s graduate students J. Burke conducted studies of this effect at different grade levels and in different schools, observing students with “great differences in cognitive achievement, attitudes, and academic self-concept” What makes this problem so valuable and interesting to me is that Bloom sought to find a method of learning that elevated the learning of students equal to the one-on-one tutoring that achieves the 2 sigma performance.

Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy: Examples from the Online World

Online collaboration between learners is the bedrock of Bloom's Digital Taxonomy. Knowledge The first stage of Bloom's learning taxonomy deals with remembering - retrieving, recalling or recognizing knowledge from memory. Digital examples include editing a document, completing a simulation and performing a task using a piece of application software, to name a few.

I’ve also seen Bloom interpreted as “Write learning objectives using terms like ‘define,’ ‘identify,’ and ‘compare,’” which tends to inspire abstract thought-juggling activities and not real-world applications.

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. 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. In my previous blog, I discussed the first level of interaction, passive interaction.

A major goal of Bloom''s taxonomy is to motivate educators to focus on all three domains, creating a more holistic form of education.
