7 Multiple Intelligences
Gardner is well known for his theory that all humans have
MANY different ways of learning. He says that if we make
use of all the different ways we have, we can learn better.
seven intelligences are:
Verbal/Linguistic - This is the part of us which loves to
read and use language.
Mathematical/Logical - This is the part of us which thrives
when things are presented in mathematical or logical ways.
Visual/Spatial - This part of us loves visual design and
color. It learns best by seeing things.
Musical/Rhythmic - This part of us keeps rhythm. Arranging
information to be learned into poetry and into rhythm helps
it be remembered.
Bodily/Kinesthetic - This part of us loves to touch things
and loves to participate, rather than watch. Movement is
very important to learning in this sphere.
Social/Interpersonal - This part of us loves to work in
groups and have interaction. It learns best through conversation
Reflective/Intrapersonal - This part of us loves privacy
and quiet. It loves to think deeply about things and write
in a jounal.
one of us has a learning styles profile according to how
often we use the different intelligences we have. Most of
us use most of them every day, but some people will prefer
one way of taking in information and the other will prefer
something else. How we learn is almost as individual as
a finger print.
more intelligences we can involve in our learning, the more
solid our learning will be.
