  5. 5. MI Theory <ul><li>Howard Gardner says all humans possess all 9 intelligences (Gardner, 2003) </li></ul><ul><li>He claims we all differ on our intelligences profile – even identical twins! </li></ul><ul><li>MIs are the paths to children’s learning we can all use in classrooms now! </li></ul><ul><li>He suggests there may be a </li></ul><ul><ul><li>digital intelligence as well </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. The multiple intelligences are: <ul><li>VISUAL/SPATIAL - learning visually and organizing ideas spatially. Seeing concepts in action in order to understand them. The ability to &quot;see&quot; things in one's mind in planning to create a product or solve a problem. </li></ul><ul><li>VERBAL/LINGUISTIC - learning through the spoken and written word. This intelligence was always valued in the traditional classroom and in traditional assessments of intelligence and achievement. </li></ul><ul><li>MATHEMATICAL/LOGICAL - learning through reasoning and problem solving. Also highly valued in the traditional classroom, where students were asked to adapt to logically sequenced delivery of instruction. </li></ul><ul><li>BODILY/KINESTHETIC - learning through interaction with one's environment. This intelligence is not the domain of &quot;overly active&quot; learners. It promotes understanding through concrete experience. </li></ul>
  7. 7. The multiple intelligences are: <ul><li>MUSICAL/RHYTHMIC - learning through patterns, rhythms and music. This includes not only auditory learning, but the identification of patterns through all the senses. </li></ul><ul><li>INTRAPERSONAL - learning through feelings, values and attitudes. This is a decidedly affective component of learning through which students place value on what they learn and take ownership for their learning. </li></ul><ul><li>INTERPERSONAL - learning through interaction with others. Not the domain of children who are simply &quot;talkative&quot; or &quot;overly social.&quot; This intelligence promotes collaboration and working cooperatively with others. </li></ul><ul><li>NATURALIST - learning through classification, categories and hierarchies. The naturalist intelligence picks up on subtle differences in meaning. It is not simply the study of nature; it can be used in all areas of study.. </li></ul><ul><li>EXISTENTIAL - learning by seeing the &quot;big picture&quot;: &quot;Why are we here?&quot; &quot;What is my role in the world?&quot; &quot;What is my place in my family, school and community?&quot; This intelligence seeks connections to real world understandings and applications of new learning. </li></ul>
