Transcript of Multiple Intelligences Revised Smr

  • 1. Multiple Intelligences Created by Suzanne Rose
  • 2. Whether youre an educator, trainer, or instructional designer, youve probably asked yourself, How can I make learners learn?
  • 3. Well, its not about making them
  • 4. Its about finding what motivates them so they want to learn.
  • 5. So how do we do that? That would make classroom management easier!
  • 6. Find their intelligence!
  • 7. Are your learners as smart as this guy?
  • 8. How about as smart as this guy?
  • 9. Who is this guy you ask??
  • 10. Derek Paravicini is an extraordinary pianist, despite being blind and having severe learning difficulties.
  • 11. Pretty Impressive! Derek was born 25 weeks premature, and weighed barely over half a kilogram. As a result of the oxygen therapy Derek required, he lost his sight and grew up with a severe learning disability. By the age of four, he had taught himself to play piano by ear. He played his first major concert at the age of nine.
  • 12. How about this guy?
  • 13. Alonzo Clemons suffered brain damage as a result of a fall when he was a child. Although his IQ is only between 40-50, Alonzo has a photographic memory and creates amazingly realistic sculptures after just glimpsing at an animal.
  • 14. Derek and Alonzo are unable to accomplish the simplest reading, writing, or mathematical tasks. But they both possess incredible skills that surpass those with the highest IQs.
  • 15. How can we explain something like this? Both of these men are savants. Although they both have severe mental disabilities, they also have extraordinary mental abilities not found in most people.
  • 16. Howard Gardner may know
  • 17. He studied situations like these to help him develop his Theory of Multiple Intelligences.
  • 18. He looks outside the traditional definition of intelligence to see what really makes people tick.
  • 19. A learner who excels in an area is not more intelligent overall than one who struggles.
  • 20. The second learner may be stronger in another kind of intelligence.
  • 21. Weve probably all heard someone say something like, Im a math person. This person is identifying the type of intelligence at which theyre strongest. So are non-math people unable to succeed in mathematical subjects?
  • 22. Absolutely not!
  • 23. The second learner may best learn the material through a different approach. The beauty of Dr. Gardners theory is that it guides us to alternatives in teaching!
  • 24. We all have the potential to be intelligent in any type of intelligence. However, we may be stronger in some more than others.
  • 25. Our culture focuses most of its attention on linguistic and logical-mathematical intelligence.
  • 26. Dr. Gardner suggests we place equal attention on other types of intelligences which give the world
  • 27. Musicians
  • 28. Architects
  • 29. Naturalists
  • 30. Artists
  • 31. Designers
  • 32. Dancers
  • 33. Artisans
  • 34. To name a few
  • 35. Okso we know that his theory says there are different intelligences. And we know that the degree of our intelligences varies between each type of intelligence.
  • 36. So what are they already!?
  • 37. Types of Intelligences
    • Linguistic
    • Logical-mathematical
    • Spatial
    • Bodily-Kinesthetic
    • Musical
    • Interpersonal
    • Intrapersonal
    • Naturalist
  • 38. Whoa Now lets break that down.
  • 39. Oooohhh OK! Thats better.
    • Linguistic = Word smart
    • Logical-mathematical = Reasoning/Number smart
    • Spatial = Picture smart
    • Bodily-Kinesthetic = Body smart
    • Musical = Music smart
    • Interpersonal = People smart
    • Intrapersonal = Self smart
    • Naturalist = Nature smart
  • 40. But how do you teach to these types of intelligences?
  • 41. Regardless of topic, you can appeal to each type of intelligence. Simply find what matters to them! But remember, teach to all these styles, not just the dominant style of your classroom! Lets see what matters
  • 42. Linguistic - Word Smart Words matter! Spoken or written, words help these learners think and remember. Poets, lawyers, and speakers are likely to be word smart.
  • 43. Todd learns best when he reads about a new subject and has a chance to think about the words he just read. It also helps him to speak about topics and teach others.
  • 44. Logical-Mathematical Reasoning/Number Smart These learners analyze problems logically and investigate issues scientifically. Numbers matter!
  • 45. Jason likes to solve problems through using logical processes. He can connect concepts to one another easily and with little guidance. To satisfy his learning needs, all he needs is a process and a problem. His analytical thinking will help him do the rest!
  • 46. Spatial - Picture Smart Recognizing patterns and relationships in space is easy for these learners. Sketching, painting, and multimedia activities keep them interested and involved.
  • 47. Colleen is studying to be a photographer. She connects the dots between most concepts just like she does between spatial relationships! To challenge her, ask her to map stories or solve visual puzzles. She typically uses organizers and charts to help her accomplish her tasks.
  • 48. Bodily-Kinesthetic - Body Smart Get these learners moving! They want to use their whole bodies to solve problems!
  • 49. Its hard for Chad to sit still for long periods of time. To get him involved in his English class (his least favorite subject), his professor asked him to act out the most significant act of Hamlet. Chad read and watched videos of the play to help him select the best act to perform!
