Climbing Bloom’s Ladder of Learning

Posted on March 1, 2011 at 9:24pm 0 Comments

A Google search on “Bloom’s taxonomy” recently returned an impressive 1.63 million results! Apparently the literature available on the internet is replete with resources about the famous Bloom’s taxonomy of learning. I don’t intend to repeat what Bloom taxonomy is about and how it evolves because I believe you can find wealth of information on various aspects on the topic among the 1.63 million results in the internet. I have selected a few articles (link at the end of this article) for those… Continue

You start the lecture and after 10 or 15 minutes you pause and ask, "Does anybody have any questions?" More often than… Continue

A picture is worth a thousand words

Posted on January 30, 2011 at 6:55am 0 Comments

Seeing is believing! In journalism, an image or picture can be so powerful that it can change the world! Jonathan Klein in his TED talk says that images themselves don't change the world but the images have provoked reactions in people, and those reactions have caused change to happen. The image can have a profound impact on our mind and can change our perception on certain issue and how we view things around us. Good image (photo) tells a visual narrative – it tells a story. A photograph has… Continue
