1. “Blooms Taxonomy is a hierarchical ordering of cognitive skills that can, among countless other uses, help teachers teach and students learn” (Heick, 2018, para 1). Researchers stated “As teachers, we need to be aware of the level of thought of activities so we can be assured that we are providing a variety of experiences for our students and helping them develop higher levels of thinking. It is important to remember, though, that students can’t just jump to creating complex products and ideas (the highest level) if they haven’t mastered some lower level skills such as remembering and understanding” (Cochran, D. 2015, para2). The evolution of Bloom’s Taxonomy helps the 21st century learning environment in various ways.

6. When it comes to the 21st century learning environment and how it has evolved with respect to the evolution of Bloom’s Taxonomy. It has evolved in a successful way because with Bloom’s Taxonomy it includes a higher order of thinking skills. These higher order thinking skills help make for a successful and enriching 21st century learning environment because a 21st century learning environment needs this type of thinking skills for the problem solving skills, creative expressions, technology integration, and collaborative learning.
