Affective Domain

The Affective Domain of Literacy with ICT contains descriptors referring to feelings and attitudes toward the use of ICT in learning.
It consists of three stages elaborated across the horizontal axis and four Big Ideas along the vertical axis of the Continuum for Literacy with ICT.
(view the Continuum at http://www.edu.gov.mb.ca/k12/tech/lict/show_me/continuum.html)


The stages of the Affective Domain have been named following the work of David Krathwohl, Benjamin Bloom and Bertram Masia. Whereas Bloom described steps of cognitive development in his Taxonomy of Educational Objectives: Handbook I, Krathwohl, a student of Bloom, described the affective domain in Handbook II. Each taxonomy is arranged by hierarchy and described from the simple to the complex.

Stage 1: Knows – Comprehends – Becomes Aware
The first stage in the Affective Domain involves developing awareness of issues related to using ICT under conditions that require external control.
Stage 2: Analyzes – Applies – Believes
The second stage in the Affective Domain involves developing, analyzing, and applying intrinsic beliefs about the issues related to using ICT.
Stage 3: Synthesizes – Evaluates – Values
The third stage in the Affective Domain involves adhering to an internal value system that controls personal behaviour related to using ICT.
