SHADE workshop titled "The Application of Multiple Intelligences for Education Systems" on April 20, 2013

School Head Teachers Association for Development of Education

The Application of Multiple Intelligences for Education Systems
Howard Gardner coined the term Multiple Intelligences (MI) in 1983 in which he presented seven different ways to demonstrate intellectual ability in learners. Recently, his research has enlightened educators with nine different Multiple Intelligences. As school leaders, it is essential for us to understand the unique learning patterns of our students, and MI helps us to understand students’ strengths. Although we have an understanding of the Multiple Intelligences Framework yet our educational institutions are unable to infuse this into our lesson planning. Therefore, this month’s SHADE session will be on the “Application of Multiple Intelligences for Education Systems”.  The session will help participants to;

·         Explore Multiple Intelligences within each individual,
·         Stimulate educators to discover more methods of teaching and learning,
·         Prepare Learning Objectives in accordance to the Multiple Intelligences framework.
Date:               Saturday, April 20, 2013
