What is Boom’s taxonomy: Bloom’s Taxonomy — York College / CUNY

Anyway, I was thinking of incorporating a workflow tag with these headings and these reasons for those headings
To put elements together or restructure to form something new/clear functional whole
- Generate (hypothesize)
- Plan (design)
- Produce (construct)
This is a creative endeavour, so it would just mean writing an essay, a report, making a video, or contributing useful to society using everything you learned from below. Not everyone has to or needs to do this with their notes right away and the other parts of the taxonomy are NOT inferior to this part in any way. Maybe you invented the next 1 inch physics equation (like Einstein’s E=mc^2). Maybe you cured cancer. Make a note of this creation here.
TLDR; making your notes useful for making something new.
To make judgments based on defined criteria
- Check (coordinate, detect, monitor, test)
- Critique (judge)
Probing your notes for any imperfections. Peer-reviewing. Making sure your notes avoid confirmation bias. On my Zettels, I have supporting linked notes, but I try to have a placeholder for one directly opposing note in my Zettel so as to avoid confirmation bias in my own PKM system.
To break down information into basic parts and determine how different parts relate to each other and as a whole
- Differentiate (discriminate, distinguish, focus, select)
- Organize (find, cohere, integrate, outline, parse, structure)
- Attribute (deconstruct)
I guess you’re already doing this if you incorporated MOCs in your system, I personally don’t know how to incorporate this other than just reflect on how your whole local group of notes is a sum of its parts and how a lack of each part results in some issue with the big picture.
To use a process/procedure
- Execute (carry out)
- Implement (use)
This can be used as examples for your understanding. You can show how you solved or used the knowledge from your “understand” notes here.
To construct meaning from oral, written and graphic communication
- Interpret (clarify/paraphrase/represent/translate)
- Exemplify (illustrate/instantiate)
- Classify (categorize/subsume)
- Summarize (abstract/generalize)
- Infer (conclude/extrapolate/interpolate/predict)
- Compare (contrast/map/match)
- Explain (construct)
This is where most of your Zettels are born. A note that has the ability to ELI5 a concept without a Wikipedia-esque copypasta explanation.
To retrieve knowledge from long-term memory
Your note just shows a basic “just is” fact. This is Bill Gates. Pi is equal to 3.14. Doesn’t necessarily have a rhyme or reason to be by itself (like knowing what cryptology means but not knowing how to solve the German enigma code). I actually don’t make notes on “Remember” level notes. I shove them straight into the Spaced-repition plugin or Anki. E.g. the first few digits of of Pi, or dictionary words.
