Today, I came across a great interactive Bloom's Taxonomy chart of web 2.0 tools. Not only is this chart graphically pleasing, but each tool is a link that can be clicked on. The author did a great job categorizing some of the most popular tools.
Do you have any favorite resources you would want to add?
Where do they fall within Blooms?
You have shared a great graphic to categorize Web 2.0 tools as they relate to Bloom's Taxonomy.
I teach an Intel® course in Thinking with Technology which suggests that educators use Bloom's Taxonomy within their unit plan. I found a graphic by Valerie Burton which I really like to use in helping teachers choose questions and create activities that reflect the levels of higher-order thinking. It's not interactive, but I think it's a good graphic representation of Bloom's Taxonomy.
I have just finished a class using Digital Storytelling Tools to encourage Higher Order Thinking Skills. I definately agree that these Web 2.0 tools encourage the HOTS. I found another image of Bloom's on
Kelly Tenkely's iLearn Technology blog. It is a Blooming Peacock. When you look at the site, it gives links to all of the tools shown.
I can't believe there are several interactive Bloom's Taxonomy charts with the Web 2.0 tools available online. I am surprised to find some new Web 2.0 tools listed on this website that I have not seen before. This is another wonderful "find" on the Internet. I hope you don't mind that I took your post one step further and listed the websites below that have the interactive tools. I think it is such a fantastic resource!

Thanks again for sharing this interactive Bloom's Taxonomy.
Kaathy Schrock has just published another example of Web 2.0/Bloom's Revised Taxonomy. She has narrowed the tools to Google apps. Again, quite creative, and useful. I have not used half of the tools listed!
Thanks, Ann, for adding Kathy Schrock's Bloom's Taxonomy graphic with Google Apps. Schrock has written a blog post titled Google Tools and Bloom's Revised Taxonomy with facts about why she created this helpful interactive for educators.
She references Andrew Church who developed a model called Bloom's Digital Taxonomy which provides informative PDFs that highlight the use of tools and technologies at each level to facilitate learning.
Schrock also provides a link to Alex Ambrose's Googlios: Google Sites + ePortfolios = 21st Century Teaching and Learning that shows a 20-minute video using Google tools to support the creation of student ePortfolios to enhance the students' personal learning environment.
A picture of Kathy Schrock along with her profile is on the page with her blog post. She has provided a wealth of resources for educators for many years. See Kathy Schrock's Guide for Educators.
To use the Google tools Schrock mentions as well as learn more about Google applications for teaching, you may want to consider joining the group Do You Google?
Your resource is a great find! Who could have imagined there were so many Bloom's Digital Taxonomy guides!!!
Looks like Kathy has just revised this page to include comments on how people may be using these google apps. I didn't see any comments, as yet. These are an amazing collection. We presented this resource to teachers at a spring workshop and it was a great way to organize exploration and brainstorm ideas for use.
Other links are also posted (which may have been there before)
Did you know that Bloom's Digital Taxonomy has been translated into Spanish by Claudia Uribe de Piedrahita, the Director of Eduteka and is available at http://www.eduteka.org/TaxonomiaBloomDigital.php?
If you are looking for more great Spanish resources, be sure to check out the group Recursos para docentes del castellano and consider joining to share your ideas for teaching Spanish.
I love this triangle shape for Blooms web2.0. I had seen one similar to this, but it is a rectangle. There are so many resources now for Blooms and web2.0. One of the most comprehensive sites in http://edorigami.wikispaces.com/home. Also, this Blog about Google tools related to Blooms is wonderful: ,http://theinnovativeeducator.blogspot.com/2011/05/google-tools-to-support-blooms-revised.html.
Great finds here! I will add the Google Bloom's list to the Do You Google Group resources. Come by and join in the conversation about all things Google!
For my masters thesis I am attempting to construct a taxonomy of web 2.0 tools that can assist in the promotion of news literacy, which has been defined as "how to use critical thinking skills to judge the reliability and credibility of news reports and news sources".
I plan to use Bloom's taxonomy, or more accurately Anderson's revised version, and have found Andrew Church's categorisation of ICT tools a useful starting point. I plan to focus specifically on web 2.0 tools (such as hyperlinks or XML), techniques (such as crowd sourcing or peer review) and services (such as wikipedia or Pro Publica's data analysis charts).
So, my question is, can anyone advise how I could go about qualifying which tools, techniques and services slot into each of Bloom's/Anderson's 6 categories ? I have thought about asking service providers, but think they are too numerous to approach individually, and unlikely to make consistent choices. I have also thought of searching their About Us and FAQs pages for the verbs related to each level, like those on Lynne's wheel above.
Any thoughts on the suitability of these or other approaches, or on my research in general would be much appreciated.
This is the tool we use to help make decisions on what web 2.0 tools to use at each level. http://www.usi.edu/distance/bdt.htm
Thanks for your speedy reply Barb.
I wasn't very clear what I am having problems with. I'm trying to create my own classification of web 2.0 tools, techniques and services under the Bloom/Anderson educational objectives, looking at their effectiveness at promoting news literacy, i.e. how much they encourage readers/listeners/viewers to critically analyse daily/weekly news reports to determine their accuracy/factual content/reliability/credibility/completeness/context/etc.
I am not so much looking for existing classifications, although if someone has tackled this line of enquiry before I would of course be very interested in that. Instead I am interested in how those that have already created such classifications decided to put various ICT and web 2.0 tools in to the specific objectives. Why is Technorati under Remembering/Understanding and YouTube under Evaluating ? Was a method followed to make these judgements ?
