    Multiple Intelligences Multiple Intelligences Presentation Transcript

    • Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences By Ryan Gunhold Faculty Development City University of Seattle
    • What is this theory?
      • Breaks down seven different “intelligences” to categorize talents and skills
      • Gardner: “Seven kinds of intelligence would allow seven ways to teach, rather than one.”
      • All seven are necessary, but only two are generally recognized in school settings.
    • The Seven Intelligences
      • Linguistic
      • Logical-Mathematical
      • Musical
      • Bodily-Kinesthetic
      • Spatial
      • Interpersonal
      • Intrapersonal
    • Linguistic Intelligence
      • Typically valued in schools
      • Sensitivity to language
        • Response to both written and spoken
      • Ability to learn language
      • Ability to use language as expression
      • Examples: writers, poets, lawyers, speakers
    • Logical-Mathematical Intelligence
      • Also typically valued in schools
      • Analyze problems logically
      • Adept at mathematical operations
      • Solve problems scientifically
      • “ Detect patterns, reason deductively and think logically”
    • Musical Intelligence
      • Associated with the arts
      • Performance and composition skills
      • Appreciation of musical patterns
      • Recognize and compose pitch, tone and rhythm
      • “ Runs in an almost structural parallel to linguistic intelligence”
    • Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence
      • Also generally associated with the arts
      • Use of one’s body to solve problems
        • Whole body or parts of the body
      • Use of mental abilities to coordinate movement
      • Mental and physical activity are related
    • Spatial Intelligence
      • Generally connected with the arts
      • Recognize and use patterns of space
      • Space in wide or confined areas
      • More than visual
        • Includes abstract analytical abilities
        • Goes beyond simply seeing images
    • Interpersonal Intelligence
      • What Gardner calls a “personal intelligence”
      • Understanding of other people
        • Intentions, motivations, and desires
      • Work effectively with others
      • Particularly critical in education
      • Examples: educators, salespeople, political leaders, counsellors
    • Intrapersonal Intelligence
      • Another “personal intelligence”
      • Understanding of oneself
        • Appreciate our feelings, fears & motivations
      • Effective working model of ourselves
      • Helps to regulate our lives
    • What does this mean for Faculty?
      • More to consider when evaluating students
        • How students learn
        • What will benefit students
      • More to consider when planning effective curriculum-based lessons
        • How curriculum matches up with student learning
      • Helps Faculty think about the learning process
      • Gives Faculty a greater understanding of student learning
