A Brilliant Blooms Based Lesson Starter

What is it:  The Differentiator is a great tool that allows you to turn your simple lesson ideas into full blown Blooms Taxonomy based lesson planner that accommodate all learning styles and processes in seconds.  It is a little confusing at first due to the lack of instruction on the site but I really recommend giving this 5 minutes of your day to play with as it will be in your favourites after you have gone through the process of turning your simple idea into a great lesson planner.

How Does it work?  This is the ultimate lesson startup tool. Here is my example for students to remember Australian States

First off you select a thinking Skill:  I chose Remembering  the Australian States

Then adding some content:  I chose remembering the Essential Facts of The Australian States.

Next Resources:  I chose remembering the Essential Facts of The Australian States using web sites

Then the Final Product:  I chose remembering the Essential Facts of The Australian States using web sites to create a map.

Go through this process with your kids, and let them be a part of the selection process.  A great and dead simple tool that you can't go past.  Check it out here.
