    Now, find the people you have an
 appointment with, and ask the following
questions. Record the answers on the back
           of the clock template.
• 8:00 AM
  – How do you define intelligence?
• 11:00 AM
  – What were your favorite learning activities when
    you were a student?
• 2:00 PM
  – What does the phrase “Multiple Intelligence” mean
    to you?
• 5:00 PM
  – Do you usually modify classroom activities to
    make them meaningful for several learning styles?
    Could you provide an example?
During this workshop, you will…

• Reflect on the impact of the
  multiple intelligences (MI) theory
  in your teaching practices.
• Discover the abundance of MI
  resources available on the web.
• Learn about MI Structures that
  are adaptable to any lesson or
  unit.
   What is the origin of the Multiple
     Intelligences (MI) theory?

• When the psychometric and
  behaviorist ages reached their peak, it
  was believed that intelligence was a
  singular inherited entity, and that
  human beings were born as blank
  pages.
• Today, an increasing number of
  researchers believe the opposite,
  which is that there is a multitude of
  intelligences, independent from each
  other.
    A new definition of
       intelligence
As a result from research, Howard
Gardner conceptualized intelligence as
the ability to solve problems or elaborate
products that are valuable in one or
more cultural contexts.
Humans are born with all 8, but some
are more developed than others.
Intelligence is not fixed

   • Using abstract symbols
        Spatial Learner

• Using visual, tangible aids
• Doing mazes, puzzles
• Making predictions
       Bodily/Kinesthetic Learner
                (body smart)
If you have strong bodily-kinesthetic
   intelligence you might learn better by…

   • Constructing physical examples
   • Exercising while reviewing
   • Visiting museums and parks
   • Highly coordinated

• Relating environmental issues to topics
• Smelling, seeing touching, tasting,
• Observing natural phenomenon
How are you Smart?
                MI Tests
• allow for quick assessment of relative
  strength of each intelligence
• Find your 6:00 partner
• Chart your Smarts Activity
• Arrange each intelligence spatially on your
  board in a design that best describes you.
  Have your partner do the same.
• Describe your arrangement to your partner
  and why you put each intelligence where you
  did.
• Do you have any strengths that match?
        Multiple Intelligences
       Key Ideas for Educators

• No intelligence is “better” than another

• Avoid “categorizing” students

• Don’t teach everything in all 8 ways

• Try to include each intelligence in each unit
  or group of lessons

• Adjust ways of assessing
• "If a child is not learning the way
  you are teaching, then you must
  teach in the way the child learns."
