Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Model

 

Mobile and other forms of portable technologies are gaining traction as primary methods of communication.  In these evolving times, the educational community would be greatly served exploring strategies for integrating these emerging technological trends with the nurturing of intelligence.  Additionally,  Harvard cognitive scientist Howard Gardner defines intelligence as the ability to contextualize problem solving.  According to Gardner, there are at least 9 kinds of intelligences :

  • Musical–rhythmic and harmonic
  • Visual–spatial
  • Verbal–linguistic
  • Logical–mathematical
  • Bodily–kinesthetic
  • Interpersonal
  • Intrapersonal
  • Naturalistic
  • Existential

Consequently, the traditional standardized model of education delivery should be explored in order to leverage evolving technological trends.  There will be a plethora of resources to help educate readers about creative strategies for integrating emerging technologies and multiple intelligences learning theory.
