This video provides a brief introduction to Bloom's taxonomy of learning in the cognitive domain. It outlines the levels of the taxonomy including remembering, understanding, applying,analyzing, evaluating, and creating. It is designed for classroom educators. Bloom's taxonomy is a set of three hierarchical models used to classify educational learning objectives into levels of complexity and specificity. The three lists cover the learning objectives in cognitive, affective and sensory domains. The cognitive domain list has been the primary focus of most traditional education and is frequently used to structure curriculum learning objectives, assessments and activities.
