I’m a very visual person, so naturally I’m drawn to charts, diagrams and anything that I can look at and understand. I’ve made a couple other charts to help people pick technology tools based on Bloom’s Taxonomy and web tools by category. I’m particularly proud of this new chart that I’ve been working on for quite some time!
I truly believe technology enhances the classroom, but I never think it should be used just for the sake of using it. This is another visual I created to help teachers select the right technology tool for the job. I hope it helps you think backwards (or rather the “right” way) to think about selecting a technology tool to use in your class.
It starts by asking what you want students to do, and then you pick a goal, such as explain a concept. Follow the diagram until you either reach a list of tech tools to help you or your students complete this task or you reach a prompting question, such as “do you need them to do this verbally?” Based on your yes or no answer, you’ll finally come to a list of edtech tools. All the tools found on the web are hyperlinked.
If you’re not a visual person like myself, scroll to the second page that is just a list of the goals and all the corresponding links (no prompting questions).
For this, the Bloom’s and the web 2.0 by category chart, visit my website!
What tools or goals would you add to the chart?
