Multiple intelligence power pointPresentation Transcript
Multiple Intelligence Theory expands our definition of intelligence.
There are seven original domains of learning or intelligences.
There has been other intelligences mentioned since the original.
The MI Theory is a set of abilities, talents, or mental skills.
All humans have some of each intelligence to some extent.
Each persons intelligences are a unique combination.
The domains of learning or intelligences range from a more traditional type of intelligence to a more forward thinking intelligences.
The Original Seven Intelligences
Logic – Mathematical Intelligence
Bodily – Kinesthetic Intelligence
All students will be seen as successful.
All different talents of students will be appreciated.
A variety of instructional practices are used.
Lessons are planned with more thought.
Meets individual needs better.
More time is needed for lessons.
Assessing students' learning could be cumbersome.
Uniting a staff would be difficult.
More supplies would be needed.
While each student has some of each intelligence, they will not excel at each.
It is important to make sure that each intelligence is being taught.
In the Multiple Intelligence theory there are four key points that are important to remember when using this theory in practice.
Each person possesses all seven intelligences.
Most people can develop each intelligence to an adequate level of competency.
Intelligences usually work together in complex ways.
There are many ways to be intelligent within each category.
Each individual can be intelligent in their own way.
Each human can have a special talent or intelligence that makes them unique and special.
This theory opened peoples eyes to the short comings of the IQ tests and many other similar assessments.
Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory Bandura’s Social Cognitive Theory
Quantative learning goals
Based on “moldable” learners and social interactions
Self-actualization is required for success
Close monitoring and immediate feedback
An intelligent person behaves as a “traditional” student might .
Components of Instruction
Quality-based learning goals
Looks at learners as individuals who can show learning in many ways
Defines an intelligent person in many different ways (according to the intelligences)
Components of Instruction
Activation by prior knowledge
