3 What is intelligence? Dr. Howard Gardner, Harvard Graduate School professor and psychologist in cognition and education., believes intelligence is “the capacity to solve problems or to fashion products that are valued in one or more cultural settings.” (Gardner & Hatch, 1989)Dr. Howard Gardner, Harvard Graduate School professor and psychologist in cognition and education., believes intelligence is “the capacity to solve problems or to fashion products that are valued in one or more cultural settings.” (Gardner & Hatch, 1989)

4 What is intelligence? According to Gardner, the question is not How smart I am?, but rather How am I smart? According to Gardner, the question is not How smart I am?, but rather How am I smart?

5 What is intelligence? Rather than using the IQ as a standard of intelligence, Gardner purports the theory of Multiple Intelligences.Rather than using the IQ as a standard of intelligence, Gardner purports the theory of Multiple Intelligences.

6 Gardner’s Frames of Mind Each person is a unique blend of dynamic intelligences which grow, expand and develop throughout life. Rarely do they work alone, rather intelligences are combined in our activities. One can enhance another. Intelligence is not singular. Multiple intelligences can be identified and described. Teaching students about their intelligence strength helps them to be self- advocates in their learning.

7 Multiple Intelligences Verbal/ LinguisticVerbal/ Linguistic Logical/ MathematicalLogical/ Mathematical Visual/ SpatialVisual/ Spatial Musical/ RhythmicMusical/ Rhythmic Bodily/ Kinesthetic Interpersonal Intrapersonal Naturalist

8 Verbal/ Linguistic The ability to read, write, and communicate with wordsThe ability to read, write, and communicate with words The ability to use language to express one’s thoughts and to understand other people orally or in writingThe ability to use language to express one’s thoughts and to understand other people orally or in writing

9 Logical/ Mathematical The ability to reason and calculate Enables individuals to use and appreciate abstract relations The ability to manipulate numbers, quantities, operations, etc.

10 Visual/Spatial The ability to think in pictures and visualize future results The ability to imagine things in your mind’s eye The ability to perceive spatial information

11 Musical/Rhythmic The ability to create, communicate, and understand meanings made out of sound The ability to compose music, to sing, and to keep rhythm The ability to hear music, tones, and larger musical patterns

12 Bodily/Kinesthetic Allows individuals to use all or part of one’s body to create products, solve problems, or present ideas and emotions Using the body in highly differentiated ways for expressive, recreational, or goal directed purposes

13 Interpersonal Enables individuals to recognize and make distinctions among others’ feelings and intentions The ability to work effectively with others and display empathy

14 Intrapersonal The ability to distinguish among an individual’s own feelings, to accurate mental models of themselves, and use them to make decisions about life The capacity to know one’s self

15 Naturalist Allows one to distinguish among, classify, and use features of the environment The ability to discriminate among living things and to see patterns in the natural world

16 Questions to Ponder: What does it mean to be a multiple intelligences teacher? How can I do a better job of teaching to diverse intelligences in today’s classroom?

17 21 st Century Education Our ability to compete as a nation—and for states, regions and communities to attract growth industries and create jobs—demands a fresh approach to public education. We need to recognize that a 21 st century education is the bedrock of competitiveness—the engine, not simply an input, of the economy.

18 21 st Century Education Every aspect of our education system must be aligned to prepare citizens with the 21 st century they need to compete. Every aspect of our education system must be aligned to prepare citizens with the 21 st century they need to compete.

20 21 st Century Education Cognitive skills are important for everyone. Cognitive skills are important for everyone. It’s not enough to educate a few highly skilled “rocket scientists.” “In countries on the technological frontier, substantial numbers of scientists, engineers, and other innovators are obviously needed. But so is a labor force that has the technological skills to survive in a technologically driven economy.” It’s not enough to educate a few highly skilled “rocket scientists.” “In countries on the technological frontier, substantial numbers of scientists, engineers, and other innovators are obviously needed. But so is a labor force that has the technological skills to survive in a technologically driven economy.”

21 21 st Century Education New, Different Skills Demands “Advanced economies, innovative industries and firms, and high-growth jobs require more educated workers with the ability to respond flexibly to complex problems, communicate effectively, manage information, work in teams and produce new knowledge.”

22 New, Different Skills Demands Learning and Thinking Skills As much as students need to learn academic content, they also need to know how to keep learning — and make effective and innovative use of what they know — throughout their lives.

23 Learning and Thinking Skills Critical-thinking and Problem-solving Exercising sound reasoning in understanding Making complex choices and decisions Understanding the interconnections among systems Identifying and asking significant questions that clarify various points of view and lead to better solutions Framing, analyzing and synthesizing information in order to solve problems and answer questions

24 Learning and Thinking Skills Communication Effective communication in today’s world requires more than the ability to read and write text. Students need to choose, manipulate, and integrate a variety of media in order to express themselves creatively and persuasively.

25 Learning and Thinking Skills Creativity and Innovation Teachers need to involve students in seeking innovative solutions to unexpected problems and prepare them to come up with new solutions as new challenges arise.

26 Learning and Thinking Skills Interpersonal and Collaborative Students need to work together on projects and exchange objects and code.

27 Learning and Thinking Skills Contextual Learning Students need the ability to take advantage of education in a variety of contexts both inside and outside the classroom

28 Learning and Thinking Skills Information and Media Literacy Students need to gain more experience with media and become more perceptive and critical in analyzing the media they see in the world around them.
