As educators we are all familiar with Blooms Digital Taxonomy, a popular model for the cognitive process. It is often referred to as the levels of learning. A few years ago it underwent a revision and became Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. Today Kathy Schrock reveals Bloomin’ Apps iPad Edition, along with the Google Apps Edition, Android Apps Edition, and Web 2.0 Edition. Check it out on Kathy’s website located at http://www.schrockguide.net/bloomin-apps.html.
