A few of my faculty members have been asking about ways they can use Twitter in the classroom recently. As I helped them integrate Twitter into their own classrooms, I started developing a running list of different ways Twitter could be used and quickly realized that the best way to show Twitter’s value in the classroom would be to tie it back to Bloom’s taxonomy.

Below is my list in a prettier format! Feel free to share and copy it, and click on the image for a larger version you can use to print from.bloomstwitter

  1. These examples of the creation level of Bloom’s are misleading. Creation does not simply mean to create by means of producing a product like something as simple as a psa or fake twitter profile. Creation according to bloom’s refers to the creation of new knowledge. Knowledge that is a result of the evaluating and analyzing multiple sources of information or content. The student creates new underdtsnding, knowledge of their own, or an original thought. This is a common misconception of bloom’s by many teachers and it is detrimental to our students’ education. “Creating” a powerpoint and creating new knowledge is two totally different things. Most powerpoints are students regurgitating information they learned in class in an intellectual manner, this is NOT higher order thinking.

    1. Of course, the use of these 22 ways to use Twitter in a way that truly follows Bloom’s taxonomy is completely dependent on the teacher’s implementation. You make good points, and ones that I mostly agree with – I merely meant this chart as a source of inspiration for teachers (who would obviously need to further plan the ideas listed above to fit with their classroom in a rigorous and relevant way).

      That being said, the point of this graphic was also to show teachers that Twitter CAN be used in multiple levels of Bloom’s taxonomy, and did not need to be restricted to the lower levels.

      Thanks for your feedback!

      1. Hi — this is an intriguing and stimulating list that focuses on students reading tweets. I’d love to hear what you do with students writing on twitter (that would certainly be creating, wouldn’t it?). I’m doing a bit of that with my students on my blog. Could you share your ideas on that, too?
