PowerPoint Presentation On Multiple Intelligences

PPT On Multiple Intelligences

Multiple Intelligences Presentation Transcript:
1. This presentation is meant to be used as
self-learning material for the study of the unit
“Multiple Intelligences” for all students of Education.
It has also been found to be very effective when used by a teacher-educator as visual aid for her talk.

2. Multiple Intelligences
The theory of Multiple intelligences is based on research by Dr. Howard Gardner of Harvard University.
Multiple Intelligences are different ways of demonstrating intellectual ability.

3. Definition of Intelligence
 “The capacity to solve problems or to fashion products that are valued in one or more cultural settings” (Gardner & Hatch, 1989).
In addition to mathematical and linguistic (language) ability, Gardner expanded the concept of intelligence to include areas such as music, spatial relations, interpersonal knowledge, and knowledge about self.

4. There is both a Biological and Cultural basis for multiple intelligences.

5. Biological basis for multiple intelligences.
The Brain is a massive net containing trillions of cells called neurons.
The neurons are connected to each other by synapses.
Electric impulses can pass from one neuron to another if a synapse connects them.
 Learning involves destruction, creation or strengthening of synapses between these neurons.
Different type of learning affects synaptic connections in different areas of the brain.

6. Cultural basis for the multiple intelligences.
All societies value different types of intelligences.
Culture motivates and hones multiple intelligences
Cultural differences are reflected in degree of development of these intelligences

 7. The slides that follow present information about each type of intelligence under four headings: Characteristics of people high on that intelligence
Their skill sets
Their possible career interests
Implications in education It will help to actively take notes while reading about these intelligences.

8. Seven distinct intelligences were initially identified by Gardner.
These intelligences constitute the ways in which:
Individuals take in information
Retain and manipulate that information
Demonstrate their understanding (and misunderstanding) to themselves and others

9. Mathematical / Logical Intelligence
Intelligence most often associated with scientific and mathematical thinking
