Learning Theory

Bloom’s Taxonomy

In Bloom’s Taxonomy are objectives that teachers have for their students. These objectives have to do with how students learn and how they use this information in the future.

Knowledge- The student learns information and then can recall it later on.

Comprehension- The student understands what is being taught well enough for them to explain it to someone else.

Application- Students uses what they have learned to solve problems.

Analysis- Students can separate parts to a problem and figure out how all the parts come together as a whole.

Evaluation- Students make judgments about the value of the material or methods for a given purpose.

This theory applies to our website because students can show what they have learned and apply it to the activities that they will do after. They will also talk about what they have learned to other students and teacher in class. They will use what they have learned to do the quiz's at the end. Students will learn separate parts about what they are learning about like where it lives, what it looks like, etc. and all the parts come together so students know all about one specific crawler,wildlife, or vegetation.

Constructivist Theory

Constructivist Theory explains that students are going to work at their own pace and how they learn while the teacher will be more of the observer and let students do things more on their own. 

        This website and lesson plan uses this theory by having students go on the website and read on their own. They can do all of the activities and quiz's by themselves and see how they do on it. Students can explore the website and get use to it while teachers can observe and watch without telling them exactly what to do. This way students will teach themselves which is a very affective way for them to remember information better. Having the quiz's and the activities lets teachers evaluate and see how much students have learned on their own.

Multiple Intelligence

Multiple Intelligence has to do with all around intelligence in a child and how all children learn in different ways. Some different cognitive abilities that children have are logical, mathematical, visual, reading, writing, body control, interaction with others, relate information to their surroundings, etc.

The website lets students learn in all these ways. Students can read the information themselves and then discuss it with others. Then can also look at the pictures and learn visually. They then can show what they have learned through the quiz's and activities provided. Students can learn from each other and express to each other why it is important to know.
