At the top three level of Bloom taxonomy, we find analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. After reviewing some literatures on how decontexualizing learning objects contradicts the recent decade new models and theories of how important it is to add depth and context to content, the RLO concept, especially to achieve the above mentioned taxonomies; may require some fine tuning.
And there goes my new hunt for reading list and questions to pop out in some of the forums I attend or perhaps create asynchronous communication with some of the education technologist blogger out there.
And talking about reading, thanks to George for popping out the question of what’s on my reading list of late. I responded the May edition of Vanity Fair and the DaVinci Code which I should finish reading it before the movie comes out. And, oh there are other reading stuff too besides all the daily dose of news syndication, columns, articles, blogs, and aggregators.
And the article that I found most exciting lately is the GQ April 2005 article in the Intelligence section. It highlight some of the applications of learning theories on to how you could chunk some critical information, e.g. significant other’s phone number, birthday, etc.
I should get back to my reading now. And to George, do give me some overview on the Friedman’s Lexus and Olive Tree book soon, ya!
