To discover technologies available at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, to achieve learning outcomes in the classroom and in a virtual learning environment, use the Bloom’s Taxonomy guide provided on this page.
To get started, focus on the measurable knowledge and skills that the learner will gain with the lesson. Using the chart below, select the appropriate Bloom’s level and action verb/cognitive process that fits the learning outcomes you have identified. Each level will provide the technology tools that are available in campus classrooms.
