  • 5. Multiple Intelligences is an approach of teaching and learning.
    "If a child is not learning the way you are teaching, then you must teach in the way the child learns."
    Rita Dunn, (from Anne Bruetsch'sMultiple Intelligences Lesson Plan Book)

  • 6. Man of Substance: Howard Gardner

  • 7. An introduction
    Howard Gardner is an American Developmental Psychologist. He defined “Multiple Intelligence” in the “Frames of Mind” (1983). HG included the last two intelligences in “ Intelligence Reframed” (1999)
    2/16/2011

  • 8. Howard Gardner states that---
    I now conceptualize an intelligence as a bio-psychological 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...intelligences are not things that can be seen or counted. Instead, they are potentials—presumably, neural ones—that will or will not be activated, depending upon the value of a particular culture, the opportunities available in that culture, and the personal decisions made by individuals and/or their families, school-teachers, and others. (Gardner 1999)

  • 9. Intelligences are “part of our birthright."
    “No two people have exactly the same intelligences in the same combination.“
    &
    “Our heroes teach us the way of courage. They look straight into the eyes of what others fear and speak out with their best voice.They listen intently to those whose voice is at times unsure. Our greatest heroes, with fearless eyes and caring heart, show us that there is power within us all.”

  • 10. HG proposes 9 stars of Multiple Intelligence.
    2/16/2011
    10
  • 11. According to Gardner:
    All human beings possess all nine intelligences in varying amounts.
    Each person has a different intellectual composition.
    We can improve education by addressing the multiple intelligences of our students.
    These intelligences are located in different areas of the brain and can either work independently or together.
    These intelligences may define the human species.
    Drawing a picture, composing, or listening to music, watching a performance -- these activities can be a vital door to learning -- as important as writing and mathematics.

  • 68. Does MI theory help learners learn better????????????????
    In Gardner's view, learning is both a social and psychological process. When students understand the balance of their own multiple intelligences they begin
    To manage their own learning
    To value their individual strengths
    Teacher understands the level of students. If a teacher knows the potential of each learner, s/he maximizes learning for the betterment of student i.e. will help to create opportunities where maximum potentiality can be explored.
    Students that exhibit comprehension through rubrics, portfolios, or demonstrations come to have an authentic understanding of achievement.
    2/16/2011
    48
  • 69. Role of a teacher
    Teacher pushes his/her students from behind rather than pulling them from in front.
    S/he works with learners, rather than for them.
    S/he explores what pupils explore, discover what they discover, and often learn what they learn.
    Teacher’s satisfaction lies in learners’ enthusiasm for learning and independence, rather than in their test scores and ability to sit quietly
    Teacher becomes more creative and multimodal in his own thinking and his own learning
    The teacher’s role in the classroom should become less directive and more facilitative
    2/16/2011
    49
  • 70. Impact of Multiple Intelligence in teaching and learning
    • Development of responsibility, self-direction and independence over the course of the year

    • 73. Cooperative learning skills improve in all students
    • 74. Academic achievement improve over course of the year
    • 75. Opportunities for authentic learning based on students' needs, interests and talents
    2/16/2011
    50
  • 76. Impact of Multiple Intelligence in teaching and learning
    • The multiple intelligence classroom acts like the "real" world.
    • 77. Parent and community involvement in a school may increase. This happens as students demonstrate work before panels and audiences.
    • 78. Students become more active, involved learners.
    • 79. Students develop responsibility, self-reliance and independence as they take an active role in shaping their own learning experiences.
    2/16/2011
    51
  • 80. Impact of Multiple Intelligence in teaching and learning
    • Students will be able to demonstrate and share their strengths.
    • 81. Building strengths gives a student the motivation to be a "specialist”.
    • 82. Teaching- learning process is for understanding. Students accumulate positive educational experiences and the capability for creating solutions to problems in life.
    • 83. Students become balanced individuals who can function as members of their culture. Classroom activities that teach to the intelligences foster deep understanding about the essential questions of life, such as: How does one lead a good life?
    2/16/2011
    52
  • 84. Designing a multiple intelligences lesson
    A great and challenging task for a teacher to prepare lesson plan for multiple intelligence where every learner should shine like a bright and unique star in the sky. However, it is really a learning experience for a teacher. He certainly grow day by day as a good teacher.
    , Lazear (1991) created a so called basic developmental sequence that can be considered an alternative to the general syllabus. It contains four stages:
    2/16/2011
    53
  • 85. Lazear (1991)
    Stage1: Awaken the intelligence. A broad variety of sensory input should create students who are ready for the following lesson
    Stage2: Amplify the students. Students are supposed to tell, share and bring their own experiences and objects into the class and discussed them.
    Stage 3: Teach with/for the intelligence. This stage is the general traditional teaching phase with work done in group project work sheet and the amplified intelligence is used to solve the tasks and therefore enhance the learning
    Stage 4: Transfer of the intelligence. Students reflects on their previous experiences and try to relate this tasks toother school or real life problems.
    2/16/2011
    54
  • 86. In 1998 Nicholsen –Nelson suggested another approach to applying MI in language teaching.
    Play to your students strength. Material should be structured according to the strength of students.
    Variety id the spice of life. Try to let every students participate in as many different intelligence as possible during the lesson and also try to find out many variation to make more effective.
    Pick a tool suited to the job. Language has many different dimension, aspects or functions. These different facets should be linked to the most appropriate function.
    2/16/2011
    55
  • 87. Nicholsen –Nelson’ Approach
    One size fits all. Everyone has to participate in all the exercises to make sure that they use their all senses.
    Be aware that different cultures value different intelligence. Language learning needs to increase more than the students IQ and is also a progress of understanding, communication and culture.
    2/16/2011
    56
  • 88. Advantages of Multiple Intelligence
    Each student is seen as an individual with his own strengths and weaknesses.
    The teacher learns how each student may learn best and may give suitable tasks to teach the content demanded by the curriculum.
    Students may be motivated and confident when using an intelligence they know is one of their strengths.
    Due to many different tasks the students are more intrinsically motivated
    2/16/2011
    57
  • 89. MIA
    • Every student has an opportunity to specialize and excel in at least one area
    • 90. Each student learns the subject matter in a variety of different ways, thereby multiplying chances of successfully understanding and retaining that information.
    • 91. Learner’s intellectual needs are met by constantly being challenged and frequently exercising their creativity. At the same time, their emotional needs are met by working closely with others. They develop diverse strengths, and they understand themselves better as individuals.
    2/16/2011
    58
  • 92. Conclusion
    Multiple Intelligence makes teaching and learning experiences sacred. It solves the purpose of education to educate the learners to become an expert in 21st century. It provides expertise and expertise always gives self-reliance, self confident which is the most required individual’s quality to survive in this global village.
    Margaret Mead once quoted that if we educate to engage the "whole gamut of human potentialities" in the classroom, society will benefit by enabling "each diverse human gift to find its fitting place.“ In fact, credit goes to Howard Gardner to maintain the status of Individual entity sacred.
