Digital Bloom's Visual

I was playing around today trying to create a visual representaion of a Digital version of the new Bloom's hierarchy. I'm either going to link the images in this illustration directly and publish on a wiki or I will come back here and provide all the links in a list format, separated by Bloom's level. If you're interested in "Digital Bloom's," you can search for "Bloom," "Bloom's" or "taxonomy" in my Delicious/Diigo tags: or

Continuing the Digital / Visual Bloom's Conversation

Lasst night on Twitter, I began discussing the idea of a 21st century frame around Bloom's, where individual apps are identified within the Bloom's schema--partly to continue to analyze how things fit together, but also to discover that the tiers are not so neatly separated anymore.

Through conversation, I found that there needs to be a new visual that connects tiers to each other while still showing the differentiation of skills associated with learning 21st century applications. I created a wiki at to continue the collaboration and I'm posting an excerpt of the twitter conversation here. I'm really enjoying how multiple tools and multiple perspectives come together to create a bigger idea than what I had originally intended.

The creative juices are flowing. BIG TIME. And as the week progresses, I hope to flesh out even more and continue the conversation with my colleagues! (And perhaps create a workshop and a journal article out of it!) More to come...

An excerpt of last night's Twitter conversation around Digital / Visual Bloom's:

fisher1000 @paulawhite I think connections are part of that lower tier, and collaboration is on multiple ones. I'm changing my whole view of Bloom's about 14 hours ago from web

fisher1000 @paulawhite as I think through this. I don't want it to be clear cut anymore. I want it to network and flow, if that makes sense. about 14 hours ago from web

paulawhite @fisher1000 does creativity equal creating? I would argue not. I created a wiki, but I wouldn't necessarily say it's creative. about 14 hours ago from TweetDeck

eduguy101 @paulawhite @fisher1ooo Are you saying that the digital blooms needs a flexible structure allowing for varying connections? about 14 hours ago from web

paulawhite @woscholar @fisher1000 I WOULD say create = new/functional/useful (and that could be aesthetic as well) item, idea, etc. about 14 hours ago from TweetDeck

paulawhite @fisher1000 I saw the coolest tool today in Bed, Bath and Beyond, called a cyclone whisk. 14 hours ago from TweetDeck

paulawhite @fisher1000 and the whisk analogy could go on and on. . stirring things up, mixing things together in different ways,about 14 hours ago from TweetDeck

cristama @fisher1000 Agreed...I love what your building, really have me thinking again. @Linda704 I'm watching recorded BOE meeting too ;) about 14 hours ago from TweetDeck

mcarls RT @gr8t @fisher1000 Feel free to jump in and add anything! http://visualblooms.wikispa...about 14 hours ago from web

fisher1000 @paulawhite Perhaps I'll keep the evolution of the visuals. It's a good record of how creativity builds, esp. in wake of collaboration. about 14 hours ago from web

woscholar @fisher1000 Yep. This thing is no longer a pyramid. Go figure.about 14 hours ago from TweetDeck

cristama @fisher1000 Perhaps back to someones suggestion of a cloud? I liked that suggestion as well.about 14 hours ago from web

fisher1000@paulawhite creativity is subjective. Creating is a skill based on a level that exceeds proficiency, in the case of web tools & Bloom's.about 14 hours ago from web

Linda704@eduguy101 @fisher1000 @cristama @paulawhite Y'all getting' way too cerebral for Sat nite! ;)about 14 hours ago from TweetDeck
