What does educational reform mean to you? In the 1950’s and 60’s it meant the end of racially segregated schools in America. Since then, it has represented curriculum reform, teacher compensation reform, teacher accountability reform, parent choice reform, and about a dozen additional reforms. But regardless the teacher, topic, or technology, there is a methodology that all teachers are taught which needs to be addressed if we are to have sense-making reform. This methodology is known as Bloom’s Taxonomy. In 1956, Benjamin Bloom proposed the six types of learning objectives that can be created for learners, and this limited framework provides the foundational skeleton for all of education and testing. This framework was created by talking to teachers and testers to get their lists of classroom objectives, to then group these objectives into six buckets. But as anyone in business understands, the first step in a successful change project is to know who your stakeholders are. Bloom talked to the stakeholders of teachers and testers to understand what they were trying to do, before organizing their classroom objectives into six buckets. Can you identify the missing stakeholder? Why not also ask the learners for what they were trying to do?
