We all know how great the use of ICT is within learning experiences for both educators and students, but do we know what sort of digital technology is beneficial and what isn’t? When educators are considering implementing the use of digital technology in learning episodes, it is essential that the technology chosen is simple and can be effectively utilised by students to encourage higher order thinking.
A great tool to assist educators in selecting effective digital technologies for learning is Bloom’s Taxonomy for the digital world. Courtney Green stated in a recent blog that “Bloom’s Taxonomy for the digital world provides the initial phraseology of Bloom’s Taxonomy’s six levels, beginning with knowledge at the lowest, then progressing through comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation” (Green, 2016).
This concept of Bloom’s Taxonomy for the digital world can be further investigated on the Open Education’s website.
