Bloom's Taxonomy


Digital Storytelling

Justin: Di ital storytelling combines narrative with digital media such as images, audio, and video. Digital storytelling can support learning at Bloom's "Creating" level in two ways. First, by asking learners to compose stories -either fiction or non-fiction. Second, digital storytelling also asks learners to find or create additional representations of that story in non-text media, e.g. images, video, and even audio.ResourcesEducause: 7 Things to know about digital storytelling

Film making

Educational Videos

Joshua: Educational Video's support learning at the creating level by allowing learners to make videos to share what they have learned with other students, professors, and anyone viewing them. This process is learning through teaching or reversing the roll of the student.

Social Writing Platforms

Amanda Social writing platforms allow students to work on writing projects in an online work space. Students can work alone or in groups. This supports learning at the creative level by allowing students to construct and collaborate their own writing submissions.


George: Podcasting can allow the learner to broadcast what he/she has learned and or teach others what the learner has learned This creates learning at the creating level by having the learner flip places and they can become the teacher and they can reach a large group with what they have learned over a broadcast.

Develop Learning Plans


Commenting for Constructive Criticism

Justin: Students evaluate and reply to the work of other students. Instructors typically need to provide explicit instructions and feedback on how to evaluate and comment critically, constructively, and respectfully.


Amanda A survey is an analysis or poll of a group of people to get feedback on the subject.Surveys support learning at the evaluating level because they help the teacher judge the materials accuracy, quality, and effectiveness.

Comments from students

Allow the students to blog with questions and comments that everyone could see and follow much like social media sites.


Concept Map/Mind Map

Justin: Students are given a central concept. To that concept other related concepts that students already know are graphically mapped. It can be done individually or in a group. It is generally done at the start of a unit of activity in order to tie the new concept to already internalized ideas. It is also possible for concept maps to have more than one main concept. The key is the interconnectedness of knowledge.

Organizing and Presenting Tools

Joshua: Organizing and Presenting tools could support more than one level, depending on who is using the tool. An instructor or student could create a presentation using the tool which would put it under the creating level. This technological tool could be utilized for its organization, which is why i placed it under the analyzing level. An instructor could use it to organize lesson plans and a student could utilize it to creatively take notes.


Melody: Being able to sort pieces of information into groups helps students analyze the characteristics of learning and helps students compartmentalize the information in their minds. Being able to compartmentalize information leads to expertise.



Blog page

Arthur: having a blog page is a great way for a learner to prove understanding. You have an open platform that you can classify, describe, discuss, explain, identify, locate, recognize, report, select, translate, or paraphrase about your understanding .

Reflective Journal

George: A reflective journal can be used to recall new subjects or information learned by a student to help further remembering and transferring it in to understanding. By having a student create a reflective journal it shows in Bloom's Taxonomy how a student can go from the remembering level to the understanding level by having them apply in the journal what they have learned rather than just repeating what was learned. For a reflective journal there are several platforms an individual could use so for a URL for this could be Face Book or Twitter

online accessible videos

Will: I hate to over use youtube but it really is an amazing tool. If I have a student that is having a difficult time visualizing/understanding how something works I can direct them there.


Arthur: Facebook is a world wide social media network were a users can make a pages add friends from all over the world were they can post pictures ,videos articles etc. it is a great resource t be able to get anything noticed and get feedback from in this situation a learner could make a page that was based on an applied knowledge and a knowledge learned can be used to solve another problem connected because of all the resources that come with Facebook


Presentation Software

Joshua: Presentation Software supports learning at the Remembering level as it provides a means to present new material to learners. The instructor can further explain new ideas and concepts and field questions during the presentation, enhancing the learning process. The students have many mediums to lock into to help foster retention, audible, visual, note taking, and interaction with others in the classroom.

Flash Cards

Amanda Flash cards are pieces of paper with a question on one side and the answer on the other. Flash Cards fit into the remembering stage because they help the student identify and recall information.

Peer quizzing

Arthur: I believe a great way for a student to prove that they remember or recall information could come from having students create quizzes with the information that they have learned and then give their quiz to a peer in their class . through out the class each student can have quizzes for each other to take that will show if they did or did not recall or remember the information that was given to them . By creating a quiz it will show that you remembered the information so that you can create the quiz then once you take your peers quiz that as well shows recall and remembering .


Melody: Lists are were students come up with words in a list to help them remember things or recall information. This belongs in remembering because it helps students recall terms.

Crosswords and Word Searches

George: Crossword puzzles and word searches are a great for students to see the information they are learning as well as key words or descriptive phases that coincide with the information.



Facebook page

Arthur: A Facebook page can be used for a variety of things and could reach out nation wide. in this situation I believe that you could apply knowledge learned in creating a Facebook page and also give an opportunity to use the knowledge learned to solve a problem using their acquired knowledge and be able to get input from a variety of sources.

Document Sharing


Melody: This is a great way for students to take information that they already know to create questions so they can learn new information. For instance if an author had written a story that a students has really enjoyed, the students can create questions about the book to ask the author about. Also they can interview each other to learn information from each other.

Using and exploring databases

WIll: The area that I teach in requires students (and teachers) to have competency in the various ways of accessing technical information. My strategy for this is to get students to use the databases we have at our disposal. It sounds funny, but one of the things I have noticed as an instructor is how some students will passively “go with the flow” and others will actively use the resource to its fullest degree. The ones that can use these databases the best are the ones that don’t just find what they are looking for and move on, some even go exploring to find more information.
