Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy and the Need for Higher Order Thinking

Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy A reader recently asked me to post some images about Bloom’s Taxonomy so I have gone ahead and done just that!  Bloom’s Taxonomy was created in 1956 and was designed to promote the need for higher order thinking in education as opposed to simple fact regurgitation (remembering and recall).  It was revised in 2001 to better represent the need for actively pursuing higher order thinking.  It is essentially something which educators use as their overall guide when planning instruction for their students as it is a systematic guide for thinking and learning.  While it may not be laid out in front of them as they plan, the components and ideas are always in the educator’s mindset.
