Bloom’s Taxonomy

Bloom’s taxonomy separates the three educational objectives and classifies them. These three learning styles are cognitive, affective and psychomotor. Cognitive is defined as the use of your mind when learning, affective is the act of learning through emotion, and learning through physical engagement is psychomotor, the last strand of learning. Bloom’s taxonomy is a crucial aspect to the process of learning. It states that within every domain, their is knowledge that of a high level that can only be reached by learning the basic skills of each domain. Simply states that you cannot apply knowledge and concepts if you do not yet understand them.

Using examples such as Skype, Google, and Wikipedia, Bloom talks about each as being unique in regards to the skills needed to correctly control each program. The education around the United States of America had thrived on this idea, recorded in a survey that can be found in year book of the National Society for the Study of Education. I would confidently say that I am psychomotor learner as I can easily learn something when I can engage my body. Bloom’s Taxonomy can be useful to learners by informing them about the better ways for each individual person to learn.
