How do we apply Aulasneo Bloom's Taxonomy?

In order to answer this question, we will start by saying that the Bloom Taxonomy is a psychological current that emerged in the 50s, in the United States, led by Benjamin Bloom, and that focuses on how learning is learned and how learning is evaluated. That is, he collaborates with the facilitators to meet the needs of his students.

The Bloom methodology establishes a hierarchy of educational objectives to be achieved, dividing it into three areas: Cognitive area, affective area and psychomotor area. Some years later, Professor Andrew Churches redesigned this idea, and established 6 levels of thought:

Now, How can we apply this in edtech?

Remember:  It is the lowest level of the taxonomy, but it is key to the recovery of material. From our platform we propose tools that allow, for example, highlighting content within the course materials, generating brainstorming, making infographics... even teachers can send emails to all participants to provide them with reminders of what they consider necessary.

Understand: It is the construction that occurs between people and knowledge. Aulasneo accompanies its clients in the development of learning: Since relationships are fostered through exchange, forums or open-ended exercises are a good way to create knowledge.

Apply: It refers to the fact that what has been studied can be replicated in another area. We propose spaces where case studies, proposals and interactive activities can be exchanged.

Analyze: It consists of establishing differences between components. For this, we have the possibility of carrying out surveys and hosting them in a database.

Evaluate: There are infinite ways to accredit knowledge, and they will depend on the creativity of each facilitator. We can list some possibilities that AulasNeo offers: forums, multiple choice, open-ended questions, interactive exams, etc.

Create : Produce some new object and structure. We provide experiences and personnel so that our clients can carry out their idea, accompanying the creation process at every moment. We encourage the creation of their own content, encouraging them to make videos, audios, interactive exercises, podcasts...

Finally, from Aulasneo We consider it important to feed this methodology because it contributes, first of all, to the organization of the course focused on the needs of its participants and encourages the planning, design and exchange of ideas. Although our platform offers e-learning solutions, we must not forget that behind each device, there is a person and with them, a universe of possibilities.
