Bloom’s Taxonomy has been a big focus in our SIP this year. I also (cheekily) asked my HT if there was money in the budget for an iPad to trail in class. When a shiny new iPad arrived on my desk my first thought was “how am I going to incorporate Bloom’s into iPad use?” I done some research online and found a few American peers who’d been trying to do the same thing.
I downloaded a few apps and trialed their use in the class and came up with the following graphic. It’s not a new idea – alas, I’m lacking in the top section of Bloom’s pyramid, but I’m working on it – but I’ve focused on apps which are free and available on both Apple and Android platforms. Also included a table that explains which apps I’ve used. Icons only help so much.
I’ve only used a few of these apps in class, and I’ll be blogging about their use next. I’d be very interested to hear what other teachers have been using, and how you’ve used it to drive T+L in your class.
