    The Theory of Multiple Intelligences The Theory of Multiple Intelligences Presentation Transcript

    • The Theory of Multiple Intelligences By: Samantha F, Sammantha P, Ashley A, Darit Z, and Erica S
    • Howard Gardner
      • v
      • Born in Scranton, PA in 1943
      • Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
      • Worked on the Good Play Project, which researches the ethical sense of young people.
      • Best known for his theory of multiple intelligences.
      • Has written several books, including “ Multiple Intelligences: New Horizons, The Development and Education of the Mind” .
    • Key Facts
      • Intelligence Theory: ability to gain knowledge, apply knowledge, manipulate one's environment, and think abstractly
      • There are eight(8) intelligences associated with the theory:
      • 1) Linguistic(verbal) -enjoy reading, writing, telling stories, and doing crossword puzzles 2) Logical(mathematical) - inductive and deductive reasoning, use of numbers effectively and to categorize, infer, make generalizations, and test hypotheses
      • 3) Spatial(visual) - ability to visualize objects and special dimensions, think in images and pictures, like to draw and design, and enjoy puzzles 4) Body(kinesthetic) - ability to move the body with skill and control, expertise in using the body to express ideas and feelings
      • 5) Musical - recognizing patterns and sounds, sensitivity to pitch and rhythm
    • Key Facts
      • 6) Interpersonal - ability to understand and communicate effectively with others, understand them, and interpret their behavior 7) Intrapersonal - awareness of one's self, goals, and emotions and the ability to use that knowledge for personal understanding 8) Naturalist - awareness of the natural world around them, can identify people, plants, and other environmental features
    • Classroom Implications for Teachers
      • Without Technology:
      • Communication
      • Engage with students on different levels.
      • Introduce the students to different methods of learning (Think Outside the Box!: visually, tactically, using different vocabulary, sounds, rhythms, using the nature around them, using hands on learning).
      • Evaluate students strong and weak points through different activities .
      • With Technology:
      • Use question and answer programs
      • Word processing programs
      • Database programs/ spreadsheet programs
      • Graphic programs/Draw and paint program
      • Programs that include group participation
      • Programs that have students working independently
      • Problem solving software program
    • Classroom Implications for Students
      • Without Technology:
      • Participate in verbal communication throughout the classroom
      • Awareness of oneself, goals and emotions and the ability to use that knowledge for personal understanding
      • Awareness of the natural world around them, can identify people, plants etc. and develop a sense of cause and effect in a relation to natural occurrences, such as weather.
      • Think in tone and learn through rhythm and melody
      • With Technology:
      • Students engage in computer software.
      • Actively participate in problem solving software.
      • Software with draw and paint programs.
      • Software that includes group participation.
    • Effect on Personal Teaching Techniques
      • The Cognitive Theory: - Helps facilitate a thinking environment - Children not only learn, but process information
      • The Intelligence Theory: - Allows for children to think outside the box
    • Effect on Personal Teaching Techniques
      • The Intelligence Theory will be used for our own teaching because: 1. It creates a learning environment that includes several activities allowing for all intelligences to be used in the classroom. 2. Technology integration is easy. 3. By using this theory we are able to reach all students.
