A reflection from Allen Angell, former Founder and President of Haiku Learning, current VP of Sales for PowerSchool Learning:

PowerSchool Acquires Haiku Learning to Create Industry’s First Unified Classroom Experience for K-12 Teachers, Students, and Parents

 

Adding a learning management system to PowerSchool’s suite of solutions—student information system, special education, assessment, and analytics—enables PowerSchool to bridge the education gap in K-12 schools by connecting everyone on one comprehensive platform.



Bloom's Taxonomy in Haiku Learning: Evaluating Apps

 

Our Embed the Web library is full of hundreds of web apps organized by categories like Photos, Maps, and Animation.

Since most teachers scaffold instruction, we thought it might be helpful to categorize all those great educational apps according to Bloom’s taxonomy, as well.

Today we’re focusing on Evaluating apps, which according to Edutopia, "focus on the skills necessary to judge the value of ideas, techniques, products, or solutions."

While this is not an exhaustive list of every app that integrates "evaluating" from our Embed the Web library, it’s certainly a good place for you to start! Enjoy!

Bloom's Taxonomy in Haiku Learning: Applying Apps


 

 

Our Embed the Web library is full of hundreds of web apps organized by categories like Photos, Maps, and Animation.

Since most teachers scaffold instruction, we thought it might be helpful to categorize all those great educational apps according to Bloom’s taxonomy, as well.

Today we’re focusing on Applying Apps, which according to Edutopia, "help users demonstrate methods or procedures, carry out procedures, let them experiment with concepts in a new setting, help them use ideas or knowledge, and let them discover a new purpose"

Inspired by Kathy Schrock’s Guide to Everything, we organized applying apps according to the below categories. While this is not an exhaustive list of every app that integrates "applying" from our Embed the Web library, it’s certainly a good place for you to start! Enjoy!
