Climbing the Bloom’s Ladder with HOT Web Apps

Apps and web apps are only as purposeful as the products and projects that they are used to create. After spending copious amounts of time publishing “Hot Apps 4 HOTS” to iBooks, I felt I should allocate some time to focus on web apps and how they too can be used to support higher order thinking skills.

I decided to model how Todays Meet and Quizlet can be used in every level of Bloom’s to support student learning and application across the curriculum. (Also check out the original Todays Meet lesson.) Both Todays Meet and Quizlet can be accessed and utilized on an iPad or a computer.

Today’s Meet & Quizlet: 

  1. TASK A: Locate a Quizlet deck for your content area and develop 2 or 3 questions (each at different levels of Bloom’s) to prompt and guide student learning in your classroom. Post your questions to Todays Meet with the Quizlet deck linked.
    1. Art & Literature
    2. Language & Vocabulary
    3. Math & Science
      1. Mystery Triangle
      2. Histology
    4. History & Geography
    5. Professional & Careers
    6. Technology 
  2. Task B: Create your own Quizlet deck for your content area. Develop 1 Bloom’s level question to prompt student learning in your classroom based on the deck. Post your questions to Todays Meet with the Quizlet deck linked.
 
Further Resources: Tasked over the fall semester to review Web 2.0 tools, our team created a blog of 60+ Web 2.0 tools that includes a brief description of each and highlights a couple of ways each tool can be integrated into the classroom. Symbaloo was one of our reviewed tools so I decided to use it to house the rest of the lot. Consider using one the apps below and mapping out how you would use it at each level of Bloom’s (or perhaps two or three levels).
