Creating a Knowledge Development Model for Blog-Based Learning

Tien-Chi Huang

Abstract—Online learning has become a popular approach in school because of easier access to the Internet. As one of Web 2.0 applications, blogs have emerged and stress information sharing and user-centered design. Although blogging is a popular technology adopted in educational settings, it has limitations in representing information in blog entries efficiently and structurally. The learning and Internet-surfing process should emphasize cognition abilities since the large quantity of information students encounter requires better organizing, analyzing, and application ability. This study develops a knowledge development model based on revision of Bloom’s Cognitive Taxonomy, in which the teacher guides students to construct an individual knowledge structure by reading, writing, tagging, and classifying blog entries. To achieve this goal, this work devises a blog platform and uses an ISO standard, a topic maps technique, to depict knowledge structure.

Index Terms—Blog, topic maps, knowledge development, Bloom’s taxonomy.
