Bloom's Digital Taxonomy

Bloom's taxonomy was developed in the 1950s and expresses thinking and learning through a set of concepts that begin with lower order thinking skills and build to higher order thinking skills. The original Bloom’s Taxonomy had six levels, beginning with knowledge, then progressing through comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.

In Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy, verbs are used rather than nouns to express the concept. The revised taxonomy begins with the word remembering before moving to understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating and creating.

Andrew Churches has taken Bloom's taxonomy as it applies to traditional teaching methods and applied it to digital thinking and learning.
