  1. 1. Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory By: Melina Gutierrez Luis Garcia Luis Medrano
  2. 2. Multiple Intelligences Theory It was first published in 1983 in Gardner's book, Frame of Mind. The theory consist of eight ways people understand and learn. This model allows you to teach and understand the different aspects of intelligence, learning styles, and behaviors.
  3. 3. Linguistic The ability to use, interpret and explain spoken and written words. Possible careers: • Writers • Lawyers • English Teachers • Linguists • Poets • Translators
  4. 4. Logical-Mathematical Can recognize patterns, use scientific reasoning and deduction, understand relationships between cause and effect Possible Careers: • Scientists • Computer experts • Researchers • Analysts • Accountants • Engineers
  5. 5. Musical Recognize tones and rythmic patterns, undestands relationship between sound and feeling Possible Careers • Musician • Singer • Composer • Acoustic engineers
  6. 6. Bodily-Kinesthetic Being physically agil and hold balance, have eye and body coordination, have agility with your hands Possible careers • Dancers • Athletes • Acupuncturists • Soldier • Fire-fighters • Crafts-people
  7. 7. Spatial-Visual Being able to visualize objects and spatial dimensions, interpret and create visual images Possible Careers • Artists • Designers • Cartoonists • Photographers • Architects • Cosmetic consultants
  8. 8. Naturalistic Allows humans to recognize their environment, its many features, and to draw upon it. Basically to learn from the environment. Possible Careers: * Botanist * Farmer * Environmentalist
  9. 9. Interpersonal Ability to effectively communicate with others. To be able to understand relationships between people and their situations. Possible Careers • Therapists • Counselors • Psychologists • Teachers • Mentors • Coaches
  10. 10. Intrapersonal Understanding one self, personal emotions, motivations, one's own need, one's reaction to change, relationships with others. Possible careers • Anything you want to be!
  11. 11. Multiple Approaches to Understanding • According to Chapter 8, Van Merriënboer holistic design model include o focusing on meaningful learning tasks o scaffolding o using methods to transfer learning • Gardner is amongst other theorist that use a holistic approach and does so through Multiple Approaches to Understanding • The book Instructional-Design Theories and Models by Charles M. Reigeluth expands on Multiple Approaches to Understanding. • The goal of the theory is to "foster understanding in ways that capatilize on differences in learner's intelligences"
  12. 12. Multiple Approaches to Understanding cont... • In order to do this: o The key is to cover fewer topics but in greater depth o Select topics that can be connected to powerful themes o Use analogies, metaphors examples to enhance understanding o Provide many opportunities for performance  short-answer test, essay question, works of art, discussion, experiments, interviews
  13. 13. Education, Multiple Intelligence, & Technology According to Howard Gardner: * Schools tend to teach in only two forms of human intelligence: - Language and Logic; while ignoring the other forms * We all encompass the Eight forms of Intelligence, it is what "makes us human." * Technology tends to be called "the solution" for our educational problems. Yet if not implemented properly, it tends to fail; educational TV, slide show projectors, etc... * In order to make technology effective we must declare our educational goals, and demonstrate how a particular technology can help us to achieve them. We just also provide technical assistance.
  14. 14. Education, Multiple Intelligence, & Technology * Technology can be use to tap into the Multiple intelligences - Different software can do different intelligences * The Internet can help them tap into different resources online, hence they can tap into different subjects; music, math, etc.. * Tapping into the different Intelligence allows us to better educate our students. Different students learn in different ways; therefore teaching in an array of methods, allows us to better teach our students. * According to Gardner, Educational and Technology will only succeed, if: "those in charge with education remain clear on what they want to achieve for our children and vigilant that the technology serves these needs." - Howard Gardner
  15. 15. Multimedia and Multiple Intelligences • Howard Gardner and Shirley Veenema • Research in making content accessible to more students. • Inclussion of CDROM. • The extra content material cleared up some questions and helped with understanding. • Integration of intelligences •
  16. 16. Multiple Intelligences Theory mainly allows for a more balanced curriculum that integrates all behaviors, such as the arts, communication, self awareness, and physical education.
