While the recall of knowledge is the lowest of the taxonomic levels it is crucial to learning. Remembering does not neccesarily have to occur as a distinct activity.
For example. The rote learning of facts and figures.
Remembering or recall is reinforced by application in higher level activities.

  • Listing

Anderson and Krathwohl's taxonomy – Remembering

1. Remembering: Retrieving, recalling or recognising knowledge from memory. Remembering is when memory is used to produce definitions, facts or lists, or recite or retrieve material.
This element of the taxonomy infers the retrieval of material. In a digital age, given the vast amount of information available to us it is not realistic to expect students to remember every fact or figure. However, it is crucial that students can use digital means to find, record, organise, manage and retrieve the important resources they need. This is a key element given the growth in knowledge and information.
The digital additions and their justifications are as follows:
  • Bullet pointing - This is analogous with listing but in a digital format.
  • Highlighting – This is a key element of most productivity suites, encouraging students to pick out and highlight key words and phrases is a techniques for recall.
  • Bookmarking or favouriting – this is where the students mark for later use web sites, resources and files. Students can then organise these.
  • Social networking – this is where people develop networks of friends and associates. It forges and creates links between different people. Like social bookmarks (see below) a social network can form a key element of collaborating and networking
  • Social bookmarking – this is an online version of local bookmarking or favourites, it is more advanced because you can draw on others bookmarks and tags. While higher order thinking skills like, collaborating and sharing, can and do make use of these skills, this is its simplest form - a simple list of sites saved to an online format rather than locally to the machine.
  • Searching or “googling” - Search engines are now key elements of students research. At its simplest for (here) student are just entering a key word or phrase into the basic entry pane of the search engine. This skill does not refine the search beyond the key work or term.
