As I am reflecting on my teaching and educational experiences, I realize that I am targeting Bloom’s taxonomy throughout my classroom instruction on all levels.  Differentiation puts different students at different levels of Bloom’s. However, when it comes to Digital Bloom’s taxonomy, we are at the lowest level.  It is difficult to implement Digital Bloom’s without access to technology for every child every day.  Until we are able to access more technology equipment, our ability to reach the higher levels of Bloom’s will be difficult, if not impossible.


I am realizing that I could incorporate more of Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy through my Social Studies lessons.  Our school has 2 ipad carts we can sign up to use throughout the week. With this available, instead of teaching students about historical figures, they can conduct research on their own and share their findings.
