Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy

Here is a really interesting blog entry I ran across about one teacher who decided to flip Bloom’s Taxonomy (a hierarchy of needs for learning) on its head. After reading the article, I decided I had just read a wonderful description of how and why experiential learning works. Let the student create and problem solve for himself, which will let him understand and remember what he’s learned on his own terms. It’s like teaching all subjects using the scientific method. The teacher is only there to suggest interesting problems and guide students in their exploratory processes. See what you think. Image
