How We Learn Multiple Intelligences (M.I) was a theory Howard Gardner developed in 1983. This is a theory of intelligences were a good way to explain the different ways that people learn. This theory explains how people learn and others learn in different ways. Intelligence is the ability to understand, learn and problem solve or creativity that are valued within one or more cultural settings”. Gardner found that there are eight intelligences and could possibly be more.
According to Gardner, human intelligence involves a configuration of several complementary abilities in an individual (Owens & Valesky, 2011). This paper analyzes the impact of Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligence theory (MIT) on schools and educators. It will achieve this by discussing the seven MIT intelligences that include linguistic intelligence, logical-mathematical intelligence, music intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence,
How intelligence can be measured has been debated for several years by different psychologists. Howard Gardner had a theory of multiple intelligences; the idea that people vary in their ability levels across different domains of intellectual skill. The book talked about eight different intelligences including verbal/linguistic, body-kinesthetic, and logical mathematical. This theory seemed quite logical since different people are good at different things. There are several different real-world examples of people who fall under these categories including Martin Luther King Jr., Serena Williams, and Isaac Newton.
This intelligence is very much involved in the acquisition and usage of language on the whole. 2. Logical/Mathematical Intelligence The capacity to make use of numbers effectively and to reason well. This intelligence includes sensitivity to logical patterns and relationships, statements and propositions, functions and other related abstractions. 3.
Harvard is only testing intelligence, not creativity, and this is why not all winners come from there. Gladwell’s discussion of this topic in his book, including giving the idea of the divergence test to college admission boards, demonstrates that he is targeting them in his audience. Therefore, one can see that Gladwell wrote these chapters to persuade his
These intelligences may not be exhaustive. The eight types of multiple intelligence given by Howard Gardner are: 1) Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence (“Body Smart”): The capacity to manipulate objects and use a variety of physical skills. This intelligence also involves a sense of timing and the perfection of skills through mind–body union. Athletes, dancers, surgeons, and craftspeople exhibit well-developed bodily kinesthetic intelligence 2) Interpersonal Intelligence (“People Smart”): The ability to understand and interact effectively with others. It involves effective verbal and nonverbal communication, the ability to note distinctions among others, sensitivity to the moods and temperaments of others, and the ability to entertain multiple perspectives.
Unit 6, Assignment 1. Name Institution Section 1: Data File Description The academic performance in class is measured through the exam metrics such as the GPA. However, the GPA may show the performance but not the several factors that define the overall outcome of the GPA. Some of the factors that may affect the GPA score is gender. This paper seeks to find out if there is any relationship between gender and the GPA performance.
His research indicated that the people who often achieved the most in life were not the people who scored the highest on your standard IQ test, a fact which indicated that there was some failure in the way we measured intelligence or some intelligence that we were missing. This led him to posit the theory of seven different types of intelligences, all equal in value. These seven intelligences include: musical, logical-mathematical, kinesthetic, spatial, linguistic, interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence. Gardner believed that all kinds of intelligence should be developed as all are necessary and useful in different types of roles. Both authors took a different approach to autonomy in education, but both authors did believe that students who are given some autonomy in what they learn and how they learn flourish a little better.
Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences. Gardner’s theory of Multiple Intelligences suggests that individuals have different types of intelligences. Multiple Intelligence teaching methods recognize eight types of intelligence: visual-spatial, linguistic, logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical, and most recently naturalist. Gardner (1993) stressed that schools should not only focus on linguistic and logical intelligences but also on the diversity of student’s strengths. In this way, the students’ intelligences can be met and challenged.
Education comes from all that consists of our surroundings: from the language we hear, the sights we see, the things we taste, the emotions we feel, there is not a single moment in time that we are not cataloguing and learning. Howard Gardner, professor of education and adjunct professor of psychology is co-director of Harvard’s Project Zero which is a program fully dedicated to the improving of education in schools by emphasizing creativity in thinking and problem solving. After extensively studying human behavior, Howard has speculated about the intellect of humans and therefore wrote “A Rounded Version: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences.” Gardner’s intelligences contribute to his ideas of what should be happening in schools instead of
