Review the following video and the resources:

Teaching to higher order thinking skills requires more extensive learning activities.  How might you use Bloom’s taxonomy in developing lessons to teach to the higher levels of Bloom’s taxonomy pyramid (Application, Analysis, Synthesis and Evaluation?). What technology can you use to extend and expand the lesson to involve more cognitive processes?
