THEORY OF MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES Theory by Howard Gardner Theory by Howard Gardner developed in late 1970's and early 1980's probably the best known theory of pluralistic intelligences (Thorndike, Thurstone, Guilford, Stenberg…) criticism from both psychologists and educators too broad his eight different "intelligences" represent talents, personality traits and abilities a lack of empirical research „An intelligence is the ability to solve problems, or to create products, that are valued within one or more cultural settings“ Gardner
MI we are all born with the potential for these intelligences development of this potential through whole life independent on the age but depends on stimuli received not just one type and level of intelligence no type of intelligence is intrinsically right or wrong identification of special knowledge
PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THE THEORY OF MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES A) IN THE WORKPLACE managers, training staff, and human resource specialist indicates behavioural and working styles, strength (the possibility to develop their weaknesses) in the job creation and staffing, career development and counseling processes (testing, assessment) more productive, more creative, and more human place greater profitability for the company and staff satisfaction
PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF THE THEORY OF MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES B) IN THE EDUCATION Lesson Design Student Projects Misuses Educational implications of MI theory: Individuation - understanding of the intellectual profiles of individual learners Pluralization - important ideas, topics, theories and skills ought to be taught in more than one way -> activation of the multiple intelligences
COMMON GOOD USES (FROM GARDNER HIMSELF) The cultivation of desired capabilities Approaching a concept, subject matter, discipline in a variety of ways The personalization of education. HELP TO satisfy the educational needs of many more students understanding the different possibilities of each students’ learning preference stimulate a student’s learning in new ways
