What is Bloom’s Taxonomy
The taxonomy was proposed in 1956 by Benjamin Bloom, an educational psychologist at the University of Chicago. The terminology has been recently updated to include the following six levels of learning. These 6 levels can be used to structure the learning objectives, lessons and assessments of your course.
Bloom’s Taxonomy is a classification of the different educational objectives and skills that educators set for their students (learning objectives) and trainers for their participants (expectations) – used for developing higher order, critical and creative thinking skills at the three top levels of the pyramid, which is dependent on having attained prerequisite knowledge and skills at lower levels. It is a process-oriented model that allows teachers and/or trainers to present ideas and concepts at manydifferent levels to meet the needs of a variety of learners.
