A workshop on multiple intelligences

  1. 1. A Workshop on Multiple Intelligences By: Iwan Syahril
  2. 2. Objectives • To review the theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI). • To explore ways to integrate MI theory into curriculum/lessons.
  3. 3. Agenda • Housekeeping • Inner-Outer Circles • Group formation - successful people • MI Stations • MI in Teaching and Learning
  4. 4. Inner-Outer Circles Let’s meet and greet!
  5. 5. Jot down names of successful people. Write as many as you can in 1 minute.
  6. 6. Is Picasso less of a genius than Einstein?
  7. 7. Multiple Intelligences • MI STATIONS. • Cooperative Learning Structure: 1.Encourager. 2.Recorder. 3. Logistics & Time-keeper. 4. Reader. 5. Manager.
  8. 8. Multiple Intelligences • Intelligences, not intelligence. • Intelligence is: 1.The ability to solve problems that one encounters in real life. 2.The ability to generate new problems to solve. 3.The ability to make something or offer service that is valued within one’s culture.
  9. 9. Old View New View • Intelligence was fixed. • Intelligence was measured by number. • Intelligence was unitary. • Intelligence was measured in isolation. • Intelligence was used to sort out students and predict their success. • Intelligence can be developed. • Intelligence is not numerically quantifiable and is exhibited during a performance or problem-solving process. • Intelligence can be exhibited in many ways - multiple intelligences. • Intelligence is measured in context/ real-life situations. • Intelligence is used to understand human capacities and the many and varied ways students can achieve.
