  • Bloom's Taxonomy is a toolbox that teachers or students can use to classify

  • and organize learning objectives. It's most popular version is based on the

  • cognitive domain and assumes that learning should be structured from easy

  • to difficult in the following six steps: One: remember. Two: understand. Three: apply.

  • Four: analyze. Five evaluate. Six: create On the first level we learn to remember.

  • There is just rote memorization and recollection of facts without much

  • understanding, for example if we learn about lemons we want to remember the

  • name, shape, color, size and that they are sour

  • once we memorise these essentially meaningless facts we move to the second

  • level of learning. On level two we learn to understand. We begin to decode

  • information and learn that a lemon is yellow when it's ripe to eat and if we

  • take a bite that it's really super sour, we also understand that lemons love

  • sunshine and that they contain lots of vitamin C which is a great natural

  • antioxidant that keeps us healthy. Now as we really understand a lemon we can work

  • with it. On the third level we apply what we know. We've understood that while

  • lemons are sour they are also a great provider of vitamin C. To apply this

  • knowledge in a meaningful way we could boil a lemon into hot water and add some

  • honey, then serve this hot lemon to our sick sister who's in need of treatment.

  • On the 4th level we learn to analyse, this involves examining and breaking

  • down information into components determining how the parts relate to one

  • another and finding evidence to support generalisations. We study the lemon flesh,

  • examine the skin and look at levels of vitamins. We conclude that we can eat

  • everything inside while the skin tastes bitter and contains traces of toxic

  • pesticides it ought not to be consumed.

  • Now we are ready to evaluate, we analyse, critique and compare. To evaluate our

  • lemon as a good source of vitamins we compare it to other sources such as

  • oranges and supplements. We look at the following properties: vitamin levels,

  • affordability, taste and packaging waste. If we evaluate our thoughts critically

  • and without bias we learn where the lemons score high and where others score

  • higher. Now after we have learned, understood. applied, analysed and

  • evaluated, we are ready to create. As we now really understand lemons also in

  • comparison to similar things we can formulate a plan to create our own

  • natural lemonate. It's now easy to come up with a cute shop design a good name

  • and a good slogan: "natural, healthy, yummy"

  • Bloom's Taxonomy was first created in 1946 by American psychologist Benjamin

  • Bloom. The revised version from 2001, as just presented, serves as the backbone of

  • many teaching philosophies in particular those that aim towards teaching specific

  • skills. Each level usually comes with a clear learning objective that can be

  • tested. Critics of the taxonomy often questioned the existence of a sequential

  • hierarchical link between each level. What are your thoughts? Please share them
