“When a student is brilliant on the street corner but falling asleep in class, something is wrong with the schooling system.”
There is an adage in educational research that says all models are flawed but some are useful. This is true of Bloom's Taxonomy… Still, there is value in the taxonomy.

Every week I send out articles I encounter from around the web. Subject matter ranges from hard knowledge about teaching to research about creativity and cognitive science to stories from other industries that, by analogy, inform what we do as educators. This breadth helps us see our work in new ways.
Readers include teachers, school leaders, university overseers, conference organizers, think tank workers, startup founders, nonprofit leaders, and people who are simply interested in what’s happening in education. They say it helps them keep tabs on what matters most in the conversation surrounding schools, teaching, learning, and more.
