PMI of multiple intelligence theory
- Students are given multiple entry points into the
learning therefore promoting learner achievement.
- When students are able to use their strengths in the
learning, they will have agency and be more engaged in the learning.
- Multiple Intelligences provides an
opportunity for teachers to personalise learning
- Multiple intelligences acknowledges a
range of different skills and abilities that were not traditionally considered
- Helps teachers create cross curricular
links and/ or integrated units. For example researching information in English
and creating a poster or a wall display. This would link verbal-linguistic and
the visual-spatial intelligence.
- It takes time to plan for each intelligence when teachers
are arguably busy enough.
- Many students may not be aware in how they learn best
and therefore it may be difficult to tailor the learning experiences.
- You don’t want to limit children in thinking that they
only learn in certain ways.
- Students are not restricted by their intelligence, but
using students intelligences can help them achieve in other areas of learning.
- There are misconception that if you lean
more towards one type of intelligence that it is the only one you should use,
when in fact it is better to use a range of intelligences.
- In an ever changing society and with
technology continuing to develop, should ICT ability be considered as
- Will the intelligence we have still be
relevant in the next century? Will any other intelligence be added?
