Bloom’s Taxonomy Digital Planning Verbs & Cards
Bloom’s Taxonomy works as a framework that not only lays out for teachers the kinds of thinking that we, as humans, tend towards, but also provides a kind of hierarchy that etches out the possible progression of that thinking. If we can remember, we can begin to understand.
Understanding allows us to apply what we know, which enables us to make judgments on the utility of that knowledge, and even our own mastery of it.
This set combines Bloom’s Taxonomy with digital power verbs useful for lesson planning, assessment design, and the general planning of learning experiences that are based on thinking and complexity.

What grade levels is this best for?
Like the taxonomy itself, these cards can be used K-12+ though if used with students, their colorful aesthetic may lend itself more to K-12 than university-level students.
Is this based on the original or revised taxonomy?
These cards are based on the revised taxonomy.
How is this best used in my classroom?
The two most obvious use cases would be to help students create their own writing prompt or self-directed activity, or plan a project for project-based learning. They could also be used to differentiate lessons or extend learning by allowing students to choose a level to explore a topic or standard at, or pushing students who have mastered lower levels of the taxonomy to higher levels.
As a teacher, you could use the cards to brainstorm lessons, units, or project ideas, or create personalized learning strategies (see the example above).
You could also share them as images on a private web page for students to access as well. You could create choice boards, for example, with four levels of Bloom’s so that each student has a chance to work at a level appropriate for them.
