USING THE REVISED BLOOM TAXONOMY IN DESIGNING LEARNING WITH MOBILE APPS
Mobile learning has been reshaping the mobile applications and requesting a different pedagogy. Therefore, the applications designed for mobile learning are expected to be compatible with the desired skills in learning objectives and learning outcomes. It is recommended to determine learning objectives and learning outcomes that supports appropriate pedagogy for mobile learning while designing an application. In this study, the use of the revised Bloom Taxonomy in designing mobile learning applications was evaluated in terms of cognitive processes and learning outcomes for the realization of effective learning. Besides, the benefits of revised Bloom Taxonomy are evaluated on issues such as analyzing the objectives of syllabus or a curriculum, the classification of learning activities according to the learning objectives, the recognition of the relationship between assessment and learning/teaching activities.
This study also introduces a few alternative models apart from revised Bloom’s Taxonomy and presents some discussions about these models. Then, a range of mobile applications has been suggested for open and distance learners.
