H5P allows you to create active learning opportunities in and outside of the classroom for your students to engage with the content and think critically to connect theory to practice. Research suggests that active learning will allow students to develop critical thinking skills which is widely recognized as an important, even essential, skill that graduates must possess. (Abrami et al., 2008).
Active learning promotes student engagement through activities and discussions. (Freeman et al.,2014)
Simple Example of The Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy and a Tooth Brush:
Whichever H5P content you choose to use, the question and context of the content in H5P could be referenced to Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. Bloom’s Taxonomy is a hierarchical ordering of skills, including cognitive skills, that can help teachers teach and students learn. Our aim is to use these cognitive process dimensions to scaffold the student learning from simple tasks using lower order thinking skills to complex tasks using higher order thinking skills.
