Bloom’s taxonomy is a powerful tool to help teachers to develop learning objectives because it explains the process of learning.
Bloom’s Taxonomy is a classification of the different objectives and skills that educators set for their students (learning objectives). The six levels of learning are:
Like other taxonomies, Bloom’s is hierarchical, meaning that learning at the higher levels is dependent on having attained prerequisite knowledge and skills at lower levels. You will see Bloom’s Taxonomy often displayed as a pyramid graphic to help demonstrate this hierarchy. We have updated this pyramid into a “cake-style” hierarchy to emphasize that each level is built on a foundation of the previous levels.
