Bloom’s Taxonomy: Bloomin’ Peacock

Tomorrow I am doing a training on the Treasures Supplement that I created over the summer.  Most of the supplemental suggestions fall into the bottom two tiers of Bloom’s Taxonomy (Remember and Understand).  I want to show teachers that just because these activities help students practice basic skills and remember and understand, there are SO many more options that will reach the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy!  I created the Bloomin’ Peacock to show teachers the Blooms Taxonomy break down and the Bloomin’ digital Peacock that shows how the digital tools in the supplement break down.

Below are the tools listed in my Bloomin’ Digital Peacock

I have received a lot of requests and DM’s for the Bloomin’ Peacock on posters (I’m still working on these), mugs, etc.  For those of you who asked, here it is:

  1. I am in LOVE of your site and JEALOUS we don’t have you on staff for training and ideas!!

    We are trying to put together an online document for Multiple Intelligences and we have been brainstorming several different ideas. I found your bloomin’ peacock and loved it. Do you have a printable version or an interactive version of the web 2.0 tools one with live links? If so, are you willing to share?

  2. Kelly,
    I have found this resource the day before I am supposed to give a PD day on HOTS and SMART. I absolutely love your resources and will be sharing with my colleagues-I need to spend more time here!
    Thank you for sharing-you rock.

  3. Do you still have the posters of the peacock? I would love to buy a set but can’t seem to find where.

    Thank you!!

  4. I love your blooming peacock. As you know, research shows that a learner is more likely to remember and use what they have learned if they have a visual representation and have experienced or played with the material. I think your peacock has some great tools for students to expand their thinking.

  5. I chose this website because it is very colorful as well as informative. Blooming Digital Peacock is only one diagram but there is a list of websites that refer to Bloom’s taxonomy. I can use this website with my students as a resource for how we can get a deeper understanding of how technology can tie student learning together.
