Visual Taxonomy of Web 2.0

with one comment

Mike Fisher has been playing with a taxonomy of Web 2.0 tools based upon the thinking in Bloom’s Taxonomy of Learning Domains .

As he states, “…this is an implementation point, a discussion starter”; and a very good starter it is, as it will challenge you to think about the placements of various tools, and the fluidity of the model. I really like the way he has designed the model to show how various tools can be used in different ways – underlining the fact that learning is context-based.

My first impression centred on how our thinking about learning has changed in just a few years. Web 2.0 has opened up so many doors that we didn’t even see a decade ago.

There are a number of other tools I would consider deserve a place in such a model, but I appreciate that this model is based upon Jane Hart’s 25 top tools for learning.

Take a look, and see what you think. Are you using Web 2.0 tools in these ways?
