Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy

from http://plpnetwork.com/2012/05/15/flipping-blooms-taxonomy/

In “Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy“, Shelley Wright proposes that, in the 21st century, our students would benefit more by beginning with “Creating” and working their way to “Remembering”.  She gives some great examples of how this can be applied in the classroom in her article.  The concept seems to be both simple and revolutionary at the same time.  Her final statement is that, “Blooms 21 actively places learning where it should be, in the hands of the learner.”  If that is the result of this approach, it seems to me that it is well worth trying.
