In this very interesting video clip, Prof Dodge explains further the Pitfalls encountered by creators of WebQuests particularly:
Where the topic is a single facet - there is no difference of opinion
Where the topic is not current or
one that an adult would not encounter
I also liked the following diagrams that Prof Dodge has in this video:
When using Bloom's Taxonomy, I often describe the Higher Order Thinking Skills (Analysis, Synthesis [Creativity], and Evaluation) as the HOTS but the other elements - Knowledge, Comprehension, and, Application as the Lower Order Thinking Skills or LOTS. In classrooms, we tend to use the LOTS alot!!!! But we need to use the HOTS to get students to THINK!
The other useful diagram is:
Again, in the classroom we do LOTS of the verbs that Bernie has pointed out here but we need to encourage students or participants to use the "LIFE VERBS" - what a great phrase!!!
