  1. 1. Multiple Intelligences<br />Alyssia Graber<br />
  2. 2. Howard Gardner, a Harvard University professor, introduced the original seven multiple intelligences in 1983 in his book “Frames of Mind”.<br />Gardner questioned the theory of general intelligence and instead theorized that all individuals possess each intelligence to some extent, but some stronger than others.<br /> Two new intelligences were recently added: naturalist and existentialist<br />History<br />(Keefe,1998)<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  3. 3. Multiple Intelligences<br />(Brown, 2009)<br />MI Test<br />Click the link below to take a test to see which intelligence is your strongest!<br />
  4. 4. “MI and technology blend in the modern, changing<br /> environment of education. To compete in the world<br /> marketplace, today’s students must acquire twenty-first century skills, such as global awareness and social responsibility, while in high school. Technology allows these skills to be presented. The teacher’s instruction must then focus on student achievement so that the technology integration is effective. One of the best ways to meet these needs is to differentiate instruction through the use of Gardner’s MI. Each intelligence is broadly defined and allows flexibility when making adjustments to existing curriculum.”<br />Multiple Intelligences & Technology<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  5. 5. Students who possess this intelligence:<br />Demonstrate excellent written and oral skills<br />Are very comfortable speaking and giving presentations<br />Tend to enjoy listening to and playing with the sounds of words<br />Enjoy being read to<br />Learn to spell words easily<br />Linguistic “Word Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  6. 6. Instructional Strategies that work:<br />Using the Internet for research and presenting findings<br />Linguistic “Word Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  7. 7. Students who possess this intelligence:<br />Work best with tangible projects and results<br />Seek a definitive answer<br />Logical-Mathematical “Number Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  8. 8. Instructional Strategies that work:<br />Using databases and spreadsheets to organize data<br />Using interesting software programs that offer immediate feedback and go far beyond drill and practice<br />Angle Example<br />Using manipulatives to strengthen the visualization of concepts <br />Logical-Mathematical “Number Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  9. 9. Students who possess this intelligence:<br />Are extremely visual<br />Have good visual perception<br />Form a mental model of a spatial world and maneuver and operate using that model<br />Create mental imagery and then transform that imagery and re-create visual experiences<br />Produce graphic likenesses of spatial information <br />Spatial “Picture Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />(Wright, 2003)<br />
  10. 10. Instructional Strategies that work:<br />Creating video-camera projects<br />Using computer-aided design and paint programs<br />Spatial “Picture Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  11. 11. Students who possess this intelligence:<br />Are aware of the roles their bodies play in learning<br />Ideas are best expressed through movement<br />Need to manipulate surroundings<br />Bodily-Kinesthetic“Body Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  12. 12. Instructional Strategies that work:<br />Creating videos showing movement and experimentation.<br />“Hands-on experimenting”<br />Using their body to solve a problem, make something, or to put on a production<br />Bodily-Kinesthetic“Body Smart”<br />(Diorio, 2008)<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  13. 13. Students who possess this intelligence:<br />Focus on listening and creating rhythms and patterns<br />Express themselves through auditory means<br />Musical “Music Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  14. 14. Instructional Strategies that work:<br />Using interactive books as well as video and audio recordings<br />Creating songs to podcast to review a topic<br />Musical “Music Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  15. 15. Students who possess this intelligence:<br />Interact well with others<br />Are sometimes labeled as “talkers”<br />Are good at starting discussions and encouraging participation of other classmates<br />Interpersonal “People Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  16. 16. Instructional Strategies that work:<br />Creating projects that allow them to express themselves<br />Presentations<br />E-mail projects<br />Videoconferencing<br />Interpersonal “People Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  17. 17. Students who possess this intelligence:<br />Are very self-aware<br />Are self-motivated<br />Often create good products, but are not sure how to share them<br />Intrapersonal “Self Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
  18. 18. Instructional Strategies that work:<br />Using blogs<br />Computer based journaling<br />Concept mapping<br />Using the Internet to conduct research<br />Intrapersonal “Self Smart”<br />(McCoog, 2007)<br />
