Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,600 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 9 years to get that many views.

Benjamin Bloom’s Taxonomy – Part 1 – Knowledge

Benjamin Bloom – Cognitive Domain – Level 1 (other levels to follow…)

The cognitive domain, (Bloom, 1956), involves knowledge and the development of intellectual skills. Domains can be thought of as categories. Trainers/Facilitators often call these three categories KSA, (Knowledge, Skills, and Attitude). This taxonomy of learning behaviours can be thought of as “the goals of the learning process.” That is, after a learning episode, the learner should have gained new skills, knowledge, and/or attitudes.
