Bloom’s Taxonomy and Learning Games

Knowledge Guru

You have a clear business problem, a related instructional goal, and a desire to incorporate learning games to help you achieve your instructional goal. To answer the question, focus on crafting relevant learning objectives. These objectives should outline what learners need to know, do, or believe/feel to achieve whatever instructional goal you have defined. Bloom’s Taxonomy categorizes learning into six levels of thinking, with each level adding complexity.

The Learning and Forgetting Curve: How to Make eLearning Memorable


Taking a short nap after learning or reading something challenging actually improves memorization and recall (Bjork, 2001). When you give your brain a chance to connect new knowledge with the prior experience, learning is “sedimented”. Which simply means, sleep registers your training or learning material into long-term memory. By viewing too many antagonizing or even similar information/activities we learn slower, become less efficient and make more errors.

The Evolution of Instructional Design

CommLab India

In my previous blog, I introduced you to instructional design and its role in the development of e-learning modules. 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. The application of this theory to e-learning led to the development of the programmed instruction movement.

Games Teach!
