The Revised Bloom's Taxonomy: Implications for Structuring Groups in Online Classes
"Bloom's Taxonomy of Educational" Objectives has been a mainstay of educational theory for over fifty years. In 2001 the original taxonomy was revised. This article uses Bloom's revised framework to design small groups in online classes. The author draws on his extensive experience in using small groups in face-to-face classes as well as fifteen years of experience with small groups in a variety of undergraduate and graduate online classes. He particularly addresses the need to design small groups that focus on Bloom's higher order category of "Create". Suggestions for future research are also included. (original abstract)
