Using web 2.0 to create promote higher order thinking skills Stephen Pate MEDT 7472
For this tutorial we are going to be developing questions that require higher-order thinking skills questions. We are going to be using the revised Blooms Taxonomy as our guideline for this tutorial. Here is a copy of the revised version of Blooms Taxonomy. We are going to try to create questions that involve the top three pieces of the triangle. These are the three areas whose questions require higher-order thinking skills.
What are we doing and why are we doing it? We are going to be using a Web 2.0 application to create these higher-order questions. Using Web 2.0 will allow a teacher to give more time to students to answer these questions. Having the questions online means that the students can answer during lunch in the media center or at home. It also allows a teacher to store answers in a centralized location making them easier to grade. The Web 2.0 application that we will be using is www.proprofs.com.
