The Electric Educator: Google-Proof Questioning: A New Use for Bloom's Taxonomy - 8 views

  •  
    "The internet has revolutionized information collection. The answer to virtually any question or problem is at our fingertips. Google has made this possible.

    While I am a great admirer of Google and an avid user of its products, in a way, Google has made my life as a teacher a LOT more difficult. Let me explain. In the "old days" (that would be pre-internet) when a teacher assigned a worksheet with a series of questions on it students had a few options to get the answers.

    1. Ask mom.
    2. If mom doesn't know, ask Dad.
    3. If Dad doesn't know look it up in the textbook.
    4. If the answer isn't in the textbook, give up."

  • In the end, that’s all technology is, too—a resource. In the hands of talented and well-trained teachers, it can facilitate high-quality teaching and learning; when used by average teachers, it most likely will lead to average results. And in either case, it’s not entirely clear whether test scores would rise, anyway—for reasons I’ll discuss later.
  • There is plenty of anecdotal evidence to suggest that, when used wisely, technology is a powerful resource that can help boost achievement.
  • I would argue that’s the point: You can’t separate the technology from the rest of the learning process, because they are inextricably bound.

  • But technology doesn’t exist in a vacuum. For technology to have an impact on student achievement, schools also need sound teaching, strong leadership, fidelity of use, and a supportive culture, among other things.
  • Among schools with one-to-one computing programs, 70 percent reported their students’ achievement scores on high-stakes tests were on the rise. But this figure was 85 percent for schools that employed certain strategies for success, including the use of electronic formative assessments on a regular basis, frequent collaboration of teachers in professional learning communities, and—most importantly—strong principal and school district leadership.
