  2. 2. What Is It?<br />As human beings, we don’t have a single type of intelligence – people can be “smart” in many different ways and can acquire knowledge through numerous channels.<br />
  3. 3. Who Came Up With It?<br />Howard Gardner<br />Went to Harvard to study history, but graduated with a interest in psychology and the social sciences<br />Published his theory in his book Frames of Mind (1983)<br />
  4. 4. The 8 Types of Intelligence<br />
  5. 5. How is it Used in Education<br />Teachers can present information to students in a variety of methods and don’t have to be confined to teach in one particular style<br />
  6. 6. The Consensus<br />PROs<br />cons<br />More options for teachers to present info effectively<br />Encourages students to build on strengths for success<br />No such thing as being “stupid” and no dwelling on failure<br />Not enough concrete evidence of it working in a classroom environment<br />Students don’t work on improving weaknesses<br />Education should be meaning-based and not confined to meet a certain “smart-type”<br />
