Multiple Intelligence at classroom learning
Venue :QMIS, Cyber Studio
Members Attended : Grade 4 to 9 Teachers.
Conducted by :Ms. Kundhavai.S – QMIS- HR.
The teachers of grades 4 to 9 were made to attend a session on “Multiple intelligence at classroom learning” so that they would identify the student’s interest and help them perform well in a holistic manner. The concept of multiple intelligence and about the way Howard Gardner developed a theory of multiple intelligence utilizing the aspects such as cognitive, psychology, anthropology, sociology to explain the human intellect was shared among the participants.
The session covered the below topics:
- Learning styles
- Types of intelligence
- Linguistic, Mathematical, Spatial, Bodily- kinesthetic, Musical, interpersonal
- Benefits of identifying the students based on multiple intelligence
- Real time examples of their own class students and their behavior in terms of positives and strengths.
The teachers were participative and gave instances of their own students and probed the reason as to why they were being so and were able to relate to those multiple intelligence asp
Report by CIS Coordinator:
The Multiple Intelligence theory can be used for any subject and at any level in a classroom and thus makes learning robust and constructive. Teachers must identify the type of intelligence that each student has developed as an individual for each one has their own intelligence superiorities and weaknesses. The key point to be kept in mind is that not all of these intelligences can be tapped and targeted when preparing for a particular learning activity. Through this session teachers were made to understand that it would be a challenge to ensure the engagement of all students by targeting the maximum number of intelligences in one session. This session was yet another step into the 21st century education and much appreciated by the teachers who underwent the same.
