We use Blooms Taxonomy to gage our stages of growth and phases. Blooms Taxonomy are learning objectives that determine levels of learning. Some, if not all, of these objectives can occur during one Piiña phase by the individual.
Dr. Benjamin Bloom was a psychologist who developed this Taxonomy in 1956 to promote higher forms of thinking in education. His taxonomy is easily understood and used in various educational settings. There are three domains that make up Blooms Taxonomy; cognitive, affective, and psychomotor. Each domain is then broken down into 6/7 categories.
Cognitive: Remembering, Understanding, Applying, Analyzing, Evaluating, and Creating
Affective: Receiving Phenomena, Responding to Phenomena, Valuing, Organization, and Internalizing Values
Psychomotor: Perception, Set (ready to respond), Guided Response, Mechanism (basic proficiency), Complex Overt Response (Expert), Adaptation, and Origination
We have adopted Blooms Taxonomy into our Piiña phases that are arranged in the order that one must master/tackle before the next phase can take place. We believe that these keys for critical thinking lead to optimal retention.
Whether your a child or a parent, beginner to expert, we have programs tailored to your level of understanding.
