Howard gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences

  1. 1. Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences A. Loftus
  2. 2. Cognitive Theorist • Definition of Intelligence: the ability to gain knowledge, apply knowledge, manipulate one’s environment, and think abstractly. • Gardner believed individuals use eight different intelligences to perceive and understand the world.
  3. 3. 8 Intelligences • 1. Linguistic-verbal • 2. Logical- mathematical • 3. Spatial- visual • 4. Body- kinesthetic • 5. Musical • 6. Interpersonal • 7. Intrapersonal • 8. Naturalistic
  4. 4. Classroom Implications • In the classroom the students will use different types of intelligence to gain and use knowledge! • Gardner suggests that instructional methods should include a variety of activities that support all intelligences. – Ex. Physical education, role-playing, arts, cooperative learning, and creative play.
  5. 5. Classroom Implications Cont. • Teachers and other administration should also use a variety of methods to test and assess students!
  6. 6. Technology • A classroom filled with children with different types of intelligences requires a diverse set of tools to absorb information. • Example: A child might learn visually and use a computer game or power point presentation to learn the best. • Example: A child is musically intelligent and uses songs and rhymes from a CD or computer to memorize information.
  7. 7. For my own teaching… • When I become a teacher, I will look for the signs of different intelligences within my classroom and try to adjust my lessons to help the students learn in the best way possible!
