Abstract—Information and communication technologies
(ICT) have given a modern teacher a powerful incentive for his
own professional and creative development, as well as improved
the quality of educational services provided. The purpose of this
paper is to consider revised Bloom’s taxonomy as the way to
implement the moral and aesthetic education of students by
means of computer-assisted language learning (CALL).
The study involved 84 ESL teachers from 10 secondary Moscow schools. The participants were selected from those who engaged students into e-learning effectively. Group 1 (42 participants) was asked to use revised Bloom’s taxonomy to have moral and ethical impact on school children. Group 2 (42 participants) consisted of teachers who had to implement the moral and aesthetic component using ICT on their own.
After conducting a semi-structured interview and comparing the collected data of the two groups according to Student’s t-test it was found that most of the participants in group 1 expressed a positive opinion about the introduction of revised Bloom's taxonomy in CALL.
The results of the study confirmed that the structuring of electronic resources and students’ activity according to Bloom's objectives leads to easier implementation of the moral and aesthetic component in CALL.
Index Terms—Computer-assisted language learning, revised Bloom’s taxonomy, intercultural competence, moral judgments, aesthetic taste.
