Using Bloom’s to Target the Objectives

During my recent webinar Hitting The Target With Technology Enhanced Learning Objects I discussed a number of key elements required to design effective learning objectives.

One of these elements, and the one I consider the most important, is objectivity.

Having learners achieve the objectives of a course is critical for their ongoing training and development. The course design, including the learning interactions, can have a significant impact on the success of the learning objectives being achieved.

Placing the learning objectives at the centre of course design will assist in the creation of an engaging learning course.

Learning objectives can be aligned to appropriate learning objects, through the use of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy.

Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy contains various levels of learning, from remembering to creating. When creating a learning course, think about what you want the learner to do. Then think how this can align to the levels of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy.

Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy can be used to select the appropriate method and learning object.

For example:


These are only a few examples of the application of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy. There is a range of other methods that can be applied when the taxonomy is used.

By aligning the method and the media you will create an engaging learning experience that hits the objective.
