This challenge is near and dear to my nagging tendencies. I’ll preface this by saying that I’m a little over referencing Bloom’s Taxonomy, but I think it’s only because I do it so often. Most educators are Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in their chosen domain, and don’t come from an educational background. Therefore, most educators I work with have never heard of Bloom’s Taxonomy…and the same is even true for many educators I work with who DO come from a background in education (say whaaaaaat?!). Anyhow, this challenge is all about helping e-learning designers out by teaching them a thing or two they should know about Bloom’s Taxonomy.
In my opinion (and many other educator’s), the most critical point of Bloom’s Taxonomy is to demonstrate (haha…a verb) use of appropriate verbs when writing out learning objectives. Most of my time as an Instructional Designer is spent labouring over revisions to verbs, so I really do appreciate the time that Mr. Bloom took in creating his taxonomy and revised digital taxonomy.
For this challenge, I wanted to create a very basic tabbed interaction to highlight some verbs that educators may wish to use when coming up with learning objectives for the indicated outcome types (Remembering, understanding, applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating).
I created my tabbed interaction using oval shapes with some animations tossed in for a bit of pizazz. I then created layers for each of the tabs, containing the content I wished to highlight.
I modified the player to strip out all unnecessary elements (menu/resources/volume control), and modified the player colour.
