In the fall of last year, I created a Blooms Revised Taxonomy Technology Chart that I used with my faculty for PD. Since then I have used that chart multiple times when I meet with teachers to help them incorporate technology into their lessons. Looking at the chart I realized it’s probably overwhelming for someone who doesn’t know what each logo and tool is or what it does.
I decided to make another chart that groups different technology tools together by category. This way, teachers could look at the chart and easily convert a traditional classroom activity or report into using a technology tool. For example, instead of taking class time to brainstorm as a group, teachers could tell students to brainstorm on the class lino board at home, and then they could discuss the ideas and get right to work as soon as class starts. A teacher may never have heard of Lino before (hey, I hadn’t before ISTE 2013!), but by looking at this chart they would know it was a collaboration tool and could go from there.
Tablet and Web 2.0 by Category with clickable links to each site.
It’s only a start at organizing so many tech tools out there for the classroom. If you know of some tools that would be worth adding or think an entirely different category of tools should be added, please comment on this post! I’d love to take your suggestions and add them to the chart.
Tech To You Later!
