Bloom's Taxonomy in a Digital World

Found this from my twitter contacts. I usually do not repost but this is so important, I felt it necessary to share.

Blooms in a Digital World
"educators have a basis by which to compare digital techniques to the more traditional standard that Bloom created" and "But today’s educational landscape is vastly different from that of yesterday rendering a lack of clarity as to where the levels of the taxonomy fit. As education heads into the digital world, many teachers struggle with where to place many of the new technology tasks within this long-standing hierarchal guide to teaching and learning."

I am going to go and get this book and I am sure that I will have some interesting thoughts to share and questions to ask.
