Multiple intelligence was developed in 1983 by Dr. Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University. He suggested that the traditional notion of intelligence, based on I.Q. testing, was far too limited, and there was a broader area of disciplines that should be considered when developing Children and Adults.
Gardner chose 8 unique abilities that he felt meet the criteria:
Musical – rhythmic
Visual – spatial
Verbal – linguistic
Logical – mathematical
Bodily – kinaesthetic
Of course as Dr Howard felt that every individual holds a unique blend of all the intelligences, and a greater understanding of all of the areas will “empower learners”, and allow them to explore more and defined areas in child development.
After all don’t we all hold a variety of skills, that were either nurtured as children or we ended up developing ourselves in our later years. It is a wonderful thing to be able to identify how your children learn, and their passions. By understanding the different learning styles of our children we can do more to bring out their natural talents, and develop weaker areas.
