Acceptable Use Policy

Diocese of Joliet Catholic Schools

The Diocese of Joliet is in the process of revising their AUP.  For this activity I will be using the original AUP.  The last revision was March, 2010, so it isn’t quite out of date.  This policy allows students to use technology in the schools in order to facilitate learning and teaching through communication, access to information, research, and…

Comparing Bloom's Taxonomy (Old Version) to Digital Bloom's Taxonomy

Looking back on my lessons, I emphasize the concept of digital citizenship with many of the students in several grades.  In the past I've shown a video, have them recall facts through discussion, and turn their information into Edmodo or a worksheet for me to grade.  Then I move onto the next lesson.  

After researching and reviewing the older version and Digital version of Bloom's Taxonomy, I've found my lesson could have greatly been enhanced and probably have been more valuable for…

Acceptable Use Policies

In learning about how to find, understand and analyze Acceptable Use Policies (AUP), I looked at the Pueblo School District 70 AUP and compared it to the National Education Association’s (NEA) suggestions of six key elements of an effective AUP to see how it compares. The six suggested key elements are: A preamble, a definition section, a policy statement, an acceptable uses section, an unacceptable uses section and a violations/sanctions section.  Below is a table for a quick glance to…

Acceptable Use Policy

The National Education Association has determined that an effective Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) contains six elements: a preamble, a definition section, a policy statement, an acceptable uses section, an unacceptable uses section, and a violations/sanctions section.  Jefferson County School District has written an Acceptable Use Policy.  This blog will compare Jefferson County’s AUP to the six elements that have been suggested by the National Education…

Bloom and Marzano

My knowledge about Bloom's taxonomy and Marzano's research will affect my lesson planning in a big way. I can see the importance of implementing the new Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy as a way to prepare my students for the changing digital world. Although technology seems to be ingrained in our students at an increasingly younger age, classroom uses for these technologies still require teachers to prepare lessons to help students integrate technology into their learning as well. Blogs and Wikis…

Investigating Bloom's Taxonomy

If I were to suggest an addition to Bloom’s Taxonomy, I would include sharing/collaborating as a Key Term. Although several of the digital tools and uses in the digital taxonomy imply sharing, they do not explicitly say so. Sharing and collaborating with others requires some…

Technology in the Classroom - Investigating Bloom's Taxonomy

This week my online technology class at Regis University did a comparison between the revised Bloom's Taxonomy and the new Digital Bloom's Taxonomy. I was intrigued by the new verbs that were introduced as part of this study. It made me reflect on how I could integrate some of these exciting changes into my classroom.

Being a third-grade teacher and looking forward to the introduction of, The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), testing Colorado…

Blogging About Bloom and Marzano

Almost every Sunday I plan my lessons for the week.  I try to get them done sooner but they always seem to happen on Sunday - after supper of course!  What's nice is that recently I refer to three sections as I plan my week:  the Joliet Diocese Technology Standards, Bloom's Taxonomy, and Marzano's Strategies.  Many of these sections overlap, which makes it easier for me to incorporate them into my lessons.

Recently the students in 7th grade are completing a project for digital…

Blogging About Bloom and Marzano

Bloom’s Taxonomy has become an important part of my planning process.  My school has a leadership team that works with an outside company to make instructional improvements.  Our current goal is to create objectives that require students to complete tasks at a higher depth of knowledge.  As a part of our training on improving depth of knowledge, we have done a lot of work with Bloom’s Taxonomy and have made it a regular part of our planning process.  Previously, I had used Bloom’s to plan,…

How Bloom & Marzano Have Impacted My Teaching

How Bloom & Marzano Have Impacted My Teaching

 

Because I received my teaching license in an unconventional way, through the Alternative Teacher Licensure Program, I did not have a strong understanding of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Marzano’s Instructional Strategies.  Even though they were mentioned during my alternative program, I did not begin to understand how important they were to the learning process until I started my masters program at Regis…

Bloom’s Taxonomy and Digital Bloom’s Integration

 During our Frogger Programming Unit, we use many of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy and Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy.  Students are taught computational thinking patterns that hit on higher order thinking skills like applying, analyzing, evaluating, and creating.  For instance, the computational thinking pattern of ABSORB is used in programming when one agent absorbs another agent.  

 

As a class we discuss real world examples of absorbing, for instance when a car enters a tunnel or a…
