Bloom’s Pencil

This was my submission for an assignment in a Stanford MOOC where we were asked to classify apps according to Bloom’s taxonomy. The point is, it’s rather meaningless and often restricting to classify apps and devices by a function. It’s not what the app or device does, but what human beings do with it that counts. And humans are clever and surprising. They will use Facebook to post pictures of cats; they will also use it to start a revolution.

    This is quite brilliant… I’d like to use it as part of a presentation at a library/tech conference in Vermont in May 2013. May I have your permission?

    I saw this piece in the app Paper by FiftyThree and I was wondering what stylus you used to create this piece. I’m in the market for one and I love how clean this looks.

      I use Adonit’s JotPro. It has a very fine tip that gives that clean look you’re talking about.
