Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy (RBT)
“Children must be taught how to think, not what to think”. In its ultimate form, education should be socially progressive. In an engineering college we teach the next generation of scientists, engineers and medical researchers who will improve our quality of life: they will learn more about the world, fabricate better and safer modes of transport, treat diseases and surmount scientific boundaries. Acquiring practical skills in addition to experimental theory is crucial to ensuring student learning capability and employability. All the specific objectives apart from being mapped with Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) they are also mapped with activities for clear understanding purpose. Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy (CLM – RBT) provides tangible illustrations of what teaching for understanding necessitates, is divided into four major stages.
Stage 1: Evocation to the topic
Stage 2: Objectives based teaching
Stage 3: STEM in education
Stage 4: Formative assessment
