Knowledge

Students post simple statements about their learning, focusing mainly on the activities that they have carried out.

Comprehension

Students post statements about their learning experiences, with an increased focus upon their learning rather than activity participation.

“Today I have learned how to use Bloom's taxonomy. I now understand the difference between each of the stages and I am able to identify which stage I am at for a piece of work".

Students seek further clarification from statements that they have made about their learning, and invite specific individuals to comment upon their entries in order to gain this clarity.

Analysis

Students both seek clarity by inviting responses  from others in their own blogs, and also respond to the clarification requests in the blogs of other learners.
