Multiple Intelligences Theory (2013) Multiple Intelligences Theory (2013) Presentation Transcript

  • Multiple Intelligences Theory By Howard Gardner
  • What was believed to be intelligence?
  • Gardner’s definition of Intelligence • Gardner defines intelligence as the biopsychological potential to process information that can be activated in a cultural setting to solve problems or create products that are of value in a culture.
  • The Intelligences Verbal/Linguistic Intelligence Musical Intelligence Interpersonal Intelligence Logical-Mathematical Intelligence Intrapersonal Intelligence Spatial/Visual Intelligence Naturalist Intelligence Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence
  • Verbal/Linguistic Intelligence
  • Logical-Mathematical Intelligence
  • Spatial/Visual Intelligence
  • Bodily-Kinaesthetic Intelligence
  • Musical Intelligence
  • Interpersonal Intelligence
  • Intrapersonal Intelligence
  • Naturalistic Intelligence
  • Theory of language and language learning Language is:  not seen as a peripheral skill but as central to the whole life of the learner and user.  integrated with music, bodily activity, interpersonal relationship, etc.  not limited to a “linguistics” perspective, but rather, it encompasses all aspects of communication.
  • MI proponents believe there is more to language than what is usually subsumed under the rubric "linguistics". ● Other intelligences enrich the tapestry of communication we call "language". ● The senses provide the accompaniment and context for the linguistic message that give it meaning and purpose. ● A multisensory view of language is necessary to construct an adequate theory of language as well as an effective design for language teaching. ●
  • Syllabus ?
  • Stages • 1) Awaken the Intelligence By many extrasensory experiencies • 2) Amplify the Intelligence Improvement of the intelligence volunteering objects and events • 3)Teach with/for the Intelligence The intelligence is linked to some aspect of language learning • 4)Transfer of the Intelligence
  • Teacher’s Role • Teachers are encouraged to administer an MI inventory on themselves. • They have a role that is not only to improve the second language.
  • Student’s Role • Learners are expected to take an MI inventory and to develop their own • Students need to see themselves engaged in a process of personality development beyond of being successful language learners.
  • Activities Linguistic Crosswords, newspapers, Internet, biographies, autobiographies, books. Visual Artwork, photographs, posters, charts, illustrations, cartoons, props for plays, videos, murals, sculptures. Body/Kinestheti Games, experiments, pantomiming, presentations, dances, aerobics. c Interpersonal Movies, team computer games, wrap arounds, conversations, conferences. Mathematical Puzzles, timelines, analogies, patterns, formulas, abstract symbols, diagrams, mind maps, computer games. Musical Background music, raps, jingles, tone patterns, trios/quartet, choirs, cheers. Intrapersonal Journals, readings, self evaluation.
