Bloomin' Android - Android Apps to Match Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Last winter (in the Northern Hemisphere) Kathy Schrock published a great interactive display of Google products that can be used to address the targets of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy. Recently, Kathy Schrock applied that same design concept to an interactive display of free Android Apps to target the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.

Bloomin' Android links to free apps for each level and task type of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy. To navigate the display just click on a level and task type to find a free app that students can use to accomplish a task.

Applications for Education
If your school is using Android tablets, Bloomin' Android could be a great resource to share with your colleagues. Even if your school doesn't have a formal Anroid-based program, Bloomin' Android could be useful for finding apps to recommend to students to use on their own.

Infographics as Assessment

Another of the ISTE 2011 sessions that I wish I could have been in attendance for is Kathy Schrock's Infographics in the Classroom as a Creative Assessment. Fortunately, for me and others who were not able to attend Kathy Schrock built a website that contains a lot of information about using infographics as assessment tools. On Infographics as a Creative Assessment Kathy provides links to examples of infographics, resources for creating infographics, and links to books and research about infographic design.

Applications for Education
I've posted a lot of infographics on this blog over the last couple of years because I think that they are useful for displaying a lot of, often numerical, information in a concise manner. If you have ever considered having students create infographics, Kathy Schrock's Infographics as a Creative Assessment could be a very valuable resource for you.

Google Tools to Support Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Over the years I've written about many different ways that Google tools can be used in the classroom. In fact, there are so many Google tools that can be used in the classroom that it can be hard to keep track of them all. Fortunately for all of us Kathy Schrock has created an excellent resource to address that problem. Google Tools to Support Bloom's Revised Taxonomy is an interactive graphic that lists and links to Google tools that can be used to accomplish the tasks associated with each level of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.

Read Kathy Schrock's blog post in which she explains why she created this helpful interactive graphic.

Applications for Education
The next you're designing a lesson and you're wondering if Google has a resource to help you accomplish your lesson goals, check out Google Tools to Support Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.
