Maryel’s Educational Philosophy: Multiple Intelligences
What is the theory of multiple intelligences?
The theory of multiple intelligences (MI) was first advanced by Dr, Howard Gardner, Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and adjunct professor of psychology at Harvard University, in his 1983 book Frames of mind.
Challenging the traditional concept intelligence, the theory of multiple intelligences suggests that each individual has eight different types of intelligences. These intelligences combine to form any individual’s specific cognitive potential.
