Multiple intelligences is a psychological theory about the mind. It's a critique of the notion that there's a single intelligence which we're born with, which can't be changed, and which psychologists can measure. It's based on a lot of scientific research in fields ranging from psychology to anthropology to biology. It's not based on test correlations, which most other intelligence theories are. The claim is that there are at least eight different human intelligences. Most intelligence tests look at language or logic or both - those are just two of the intelligences. The other six are musical, spatial, bodily/kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalist. Two claims are made relative to multiple intelligences: The first claim is that all human beings have all of these intelligences. It's part of our species definition. The second claim is that, both because of our genetics and our environment, no two people have exactly the same profile of intelligences, not even identical twins, because their experiences are different." – Howard Gardner.
This theory is important to classroom teachers as it can help them create lessons which are more adequately and thoroughly focused on individual student needs. Additionally, a general awareness of multiple intelligences allows teachers, parents and learners to better understand how to make the most of the learning environment, whereby improving achievement.
At the end of program, participants will be able to:
- Explain the concepts, philosophy, principles and applications of multiple intelligences.
- Explain and demonstrate how to create lessons which reflect an understanding of multiple intelligences.
- Differentiate between and explain the different intelligences.
- Describe the link between multiple intelligences in the learner and the lesson plans.
- Create effective learning outcomes for different styles of learner.
- Adjust lesson plans and teaching styles according to individual student needs.
For lecturers, teachers, trainers and administrators in educational institutions who are directly or indirectly involved in the teaching and learning environment.
