Building a LiveBinder...Let it Bloom With These Tools
And she Blooms, she Blooms, Oh baby! Then she moves, she moves...(Major liberties taken, as per usual.)
My obsession with LiveBinder continues to grow. It has become my new Google. I guess it's because I know each binder was created by someone who used their blood, sweat and tears to create it. (Their body not the band.)
I have this recurring dream though...that Bloom's Taxonomy keeps coming back!
"Bloom's came back...the very next day...Bloom's came back, I thought it was a goner...but."
Wow! Lit Maven...too much sun!
LIVEBINDERS THAT ROCKED MY WORLD...TODAY
Anyway, I am keen to share these new LiveBinder resources under the theme of Bloom's Taxonomy. I absolutely think they offer anyone a crash course in understanding Bloom's as well as incredibly helpful resources. (SO helpful that I continue to have them swirl in my mind.)
TEACHER AS THE AUDIENCE
1) Bloom's Digital Taxonomy by Colleen Young
Check out the second tab, "Quick Sheets". Here you will find definitions, key verbs and possible activities. The last tab, "Posters" has the most amazing Taxonomy wheel. I loved this! I would marry it, if I wasn't already. Please explore...OK one more thing...Under the visual tab, are APPS that relate to the different Bloom's levels...seriously exciting.
STUDENT AS THE AUDIENCE
2) Digital Bloom's Taxonomy by Kelly Tenkely
This LiveBinder is neatly divided into the Taxonomy levels. This one is intended for the students and would be great to share with parents.
So as you create your brand spankin' new resources...consider your Bloom's Taxonomy...you can't ignore it...
