Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning 

Imagine you want to be a chef.  One day you start out making yourself some boiled eggs. A week later, you are making scrambled eggs.  Next, comes omelettes followed by eggs Benedict. This simple process of progression can be likened to how Benjamin Bloom illustrated learning through Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning.  What is Bloom’s Taxonomy?

Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning was introduced by Benjamin Bloom in the mid-1950s. This hierarchical system presents educators with the goal of challenging learners to develop higher-order thinking skills as used by many LMS. Rather than simple knowing something and remaining at the lower-level cognitive skills, Bloom asserted that true learning occurs when students are able to transition through the different levels with the acquired knowledge.  In looking at the chef example, no chef remains at the most basic food items if he or she wants to succeed in the kitchen.  Bloom asserted that actual learning occurs when content is used to obtain different learning outcomes.
