Creativity: Plurarity of Intelligences

Published by in Teaching Concept ·

According to Harvard University, Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences (MI) theory; intelligence is a pluralistic phenomenon, rather than a static structure with a single type of intelligence. In his study he identified different distinct types of intelligences: verbal/linguistic, logical/mathematical, musical, visual/spatial, body/kinesthetic, naturalistic, interpersonal, intrapersonal. Every person is smart to varying degrees of expertise in each of the intelligences, stronger in some ways and less developed in others. In other words: Every learner has the capacity to exhibit all of these intelligences, but some intelligences are more highly developed than others in certain individuals. All students can learn and succeed, but not all on the same day in the same way. As each individual has several intellectual abilities, the teaching strategy has to be tailored to meet learners specific needs and unique characteristics. My goal is to personalize and facilitate the transfer of concepts in conjunction with a multidisciplinary approach.
