How Bloom’s Taxonomy is useful for teachers
Many educators love Bloom’s Taxonomy because, among other benefits, it gives them a way to think about their teaching and the subsequent learning of their learners.
The framework can be used to state lesson objectives in preparing to teach. Furthermore, as the framework provides an order for cognitive behaviors, it can be applied to evaluate the complexity of tasks, to create assessment, to simplify or complicate an activity to help personalize learning, and many more.
Last, as Bloom’s Taxonomy helps classifying classroom lesson objectives, it helps teachers to variate among the levels of complexity with a focus on achieving higher levels of the hierarchy. The framework helps teacher to develop critical thinking and higher order cognitive abilities, which are aligned with 21st century skills, in learners. A framework for 21st century learning focuses on four key skills that are known as 'the 4 Cs': Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Creativity. Watch the video below to get an introduction to the 4Cs and how it can effect your teaching practice and learners' learning.
