    I genuinely want to ask: what is the educational point of 'word clouds'? To me there are useful as 'word searches' which have to be the almost useless. How have I got this so wrong?

    To Gerald Carey - As an English teacher, word clouds are a great tool. Taking text from literature or even from your own students' writing and placing it in a word cloud builder allows students to find theme words because the words used the most often are bigger than the others. I've used my students' quickwrite entries about a chosen piece of text and shown them that they are all thinking through the literature the same way. It's pretty eye opening for an English class!

Bloom's Taxonomy Blooms Digitally, Andrew Churches - 33 views

  • In the 1950's Benjamin Bloom developed his taxonomy of cognitive objectives, Bloom's Taxonomy. This categorized and ordered thinking skills and objectives. His taxonomy follows the thinking process. You can not understand a concept if you do not first remember it, similarly you can not apply knowledge and concepts if you do not understand them. It is a continuum from Lower Order Thinking Skills (LOTS) to Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS). Bloom labels each category with a gerund.
  • In the 1990's, a former student of Bloom, Lorin Anderson, revised Bloom's Taxonomy and published this- Bloom's Revised Taxonomy in 2001.Key to this is the use of verbs rather than nouns for each of the categories and a rearrangement of the sequence within the taxonomy. They are arranged below in increasing order, from low to high.

    • Kalin Wilburn
       
      Prezi is a zooming presentation creator. It is easy to use and offers you a 21st century presentation that doesn't even compare to PowerPoint. Your presentations can have a professional appearance without having to switch between slides or add transitional effects to each individual detail. Prezi provides you a canvas to be creative on so don't be afraid to think outside the box -- explore other Prezis to get ideas (they will blow you away).

      My middle school students learn to use Prezi easily. It helps teach them literacy skills, organization, critical thinking, and all other skills related to writing an essay or story.
