Has anyone developed a Bloom's Taxonomy with Canvas tools and strategies? Not just a digital taxonomy but one that digs a bit deeper.
We are currently starting to develop one to support teaching and learning- have already read Digital Learning + Canvas + SAMR Checklists as well as the Canvas tool guide for teachers which were very helpful - thank you! Was wondering if there was something similar. We are also looking at backward mapping strategies and how these can improve assessment for learning and the integration of Canvas. @david_summervi1 #callaghancollegewallsendcampus
If there is nothing around, when we finish our version of it, we will share!
Hi @stacy_lambert ! I'm personally a fan of INVERTED Bloom, where the focus is all on student creation and then working back from what they want to create to the content/skills they need in order to succeed in their creation goals (see inverted Bloom and useful link below).
So, if you are helping students to create things, a tool like Padlet is a fantastic way for them to create and then SHARE what they have created with other students in the class. I just wrote up a blog post about Padlet as a collaborative tool in Canvas, and if you search for Padlet here at the Community, you'll find lots of other references to using it in Canvas. It is so fun and easy, and also powerful for sharing!
Here's my post:
About inverted Bloom:
First, here are some additional Resources specific to Canvas (and one general for online courses):
Second, let me tell you how I do it (briefly), and how I train my own faculty:
Of course, those six simple bullet points include a lot of details, but the key, for me, is the outline. It helps faculty define the structure of the course they are building, and guides their decisions on content, activities and assessments. Even after 20 years of teaching online, I still use a separate outline as my starting point in course design. I helps me verify that I am not not missing anything, have considered everything, and have verified the constructive alignment of my course.
Also, you will fin in the Canvas Commons my four-week faculty training course "Curriculum Development and Improvement - A Constructive Approach." It has minimal branding for our school, and some small content in the final module that specifically relates to the curriculum improvement process at our school.
I hope this helps,
Thanks Agent K! Wish there was a 'love' button! Not just 'like'! Thanks for your help. This is why I love the community.
Excellent questionStacy!! We're doing a similar thing, but at, perhaps a broader level. We're tying Canvas tools to Good Learning Principles and Universal Design for Learning (multiple means of ...). Here's an early draft: TEiC Course Design Handouts - Aug 2017 - Google Docs featuring examples pulled largely from the Community. A sample:
CO-DESIGN strategies in Canvas
CUSTOMIZATION strategies in Canvas
IDENTITY strategies in Canvas
MANIPULATION strategies in Canvas
