“It’s not how smart you are, but how you are smart.” -Dr. Howard Gardner Dr Howard Gradner

Introduction : 

The theory of multiple intelligences was developed in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University. Gardner's theory argues that I.Q. tests were far too limited and measured primarily verbal and logical-mathematical intelligence. Dr. Gardner proposed that there were eight different types of intelligences that account for a broader range of human potential. Introduction

Linguistic Intelligence : 

Linguistic intelligence involves sensitivity to spoken and written language, the ability to learn languages, and the capacity to use language to accomplish certain goals. This intelligence includes the ability to effectively use language to express oneself rhetorically or poetically; and language as a means to remember information. Linguistic Intelligence

Logical-Mathematical Intelligence : 

Logical-mathematical intelligence consists of the capacity to analyze problems logically, carry out mathematical operations, and investigate issues scientifically. This intelligence is most often associated with scientific and mathematical thinking. Logical-Mathematical Intelligence

Musical Intelligence : 

Musical intelligence involves skill in the performance, composition, and appreciation of musical patterns. It encompasses the capacity to recognize and compose musical pitches, tones, and rhythms. Musical Intelligence

Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence : 

Bodily-kinesthetic intelligence entails the potential of using one's whole body or parts of the body to solve problems. It is the ability to use mental abilities to coordinate bodily movements. Bodily-Kinesthetic intelligence

Spatial Intelligence : 

This area has to do with vision and spatial judgment. People with strong visual-spatial intelligence are typically very good at visualizing and mentally manipulating objects. Those with strong spatial intelligence are often proficient at solving puzzles. They have a strong visual memory and are often artistically inclined. Spatial Intelligence

Interpersonal Intelligence : 

Interpersonal intelligence is concerned with the capacity to understand the intentions, motivations and desires of other people. It allows people to work effectively with others. Interpersonal Intelligence

Intrapersonal Intelligence : 

Intrapersonal intelligence entails the capacity to understand oneself, to appreciate one's feelings, fears and motivations. In Howard Gardner's view it involves having an effective working model of ourselves, and to be able to use such information to regulate our lives. Intrapersonal Intelligence

Summary : 

The theory of multiple intelligences proposes a major transformation in the way our schools are run. It suggests that teachers be trained to present their lessons in a wide variety of ways using music, cooperative learning, art activities, role play, multimedia, field trips, inner reflection, and much more. Basically, if a teacher is having difficulty reaching a student through lecture or instructions, the, theory suggests several other ways in which the material might be presented to help the student learn. Summary

Conclusion : 

In conclusion, the theory of multiple intelligences is so intriguing because it expands our horizon of available teaching/learning tools beyond the conventional ways of learning. Conclusion
