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.
HOWARD GARDNER: MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCE Multiple Intelligence: Howard Gardner (1943-current) originally identified and stated that there are 7 (later 9) specific types of intelligence. Gardner argued that students across a broad scale would retain information better if the information was displayed in a number of ways, due to the fact that an individual’s cognitive ability varies in the different types of multiple
The main idea of this theory is that knowledge should not be seen as a single general ability, but a combination of eight distinct forms of intelligence. Psychologist Howard Gardner at Harvard University in 1983 originally proposed the Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory . He defined eight measures of multiple intelligence: linguistics, logical- mathematics, visual-spatial, interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical, bodily-kinesthetic and naturalist. (Armstrong, 2007; Gardner, 1983). According to MI theory individuals differ is in the strength of these intelligences.
The more recent Theory of Multiple Intelligences (Gardner, 1983) completely opposes this, proposing over seven modalities of intelligence. Robert Sternberg has taken a middle ground (Sternberg, 1999). He admits that there is a huge breadth of evidence for the
Gardner’s effort on multiple intelligences from past two decades has been quite significant. It was identified that intelligence is basically the ability for solving issues that are actually valued with in the cultural practice. According to Meunier (2003), when adults are able to learn from their lives from multiple intelligence models, they are able to find liberation in inspecting potentials which were never developed or highlighted. Programs for self-development from hobbies, programs and courses can mainly re-integrate the native intelligences of an individual in a way that can be satisfying from personal perspective. Discussion When it comes to multiple intelligence types and factors involved in clinical practices, we often realize
In this way Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence (MI) theory also gives importance to the learners. This theory is applied in education because teachers notice more frequently that students learn many things through their multiple intelligence. This model was proposed by Gardner in his book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences (1983). This model is one of a variety of learning style models this have been proposed in education and have been applied to language education also. Gardner showcases eight human “intelligences,” which are described as follows: The Eight Intelligences Gardner 's (2006, 1991) eight intelligences and their explicit implications are explained in brief below.
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.
Introduction Different people from different cultures have different criteria’s they use to define intelligence (Tlali, 2016). For many years tests have been carried out, theories been formulated to define intelligence but none of these theories are the same. One of the people who formulated their own theory of intelligence is Howard Gardner who is an American psychologist. He came up with the theory of multiple intelligences which differentiates intelligence into a number of modalities. In this essay, Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligence theory will be discussed and also how psychotherapists can use some of his theories to improve their effectiveness.
