Bloom’s Taxonomy is a system of classifying learning objectives, created by Benjamin Bloom in the 1950’s.
The system consists of 6 levels of understanding, ranging from simple cognitive tasks to higher-order thinking.
Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) refers to the processes of developing social and emotional skills to promote healthy interactions with oneself and with others.
Learning these skills is critical because it enables students to ultimately become successful workers and responsible members of society. Strong social and emotional skills also reduce an individual’s risk of developing dangerous or unhealthy behaviors such as drug abuse, violence, bullying, or dropping out of school.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, an augmented reality experience might be worth ten thousand.
Augmented reality (AR) is a new technology that combines virtual reality with reality. Virtual reality experiences are commonly accessed by putting on specially designed headgear or interacting with a computer that allows you to see into a different world. Augmented reality, on the other hand, does exactly the opposite – it brings the virtual world into our own world of reality.
