Learning with a purpose-Woodmam
Every child has some areas of greatest interest and expertise, and if they don't find them, they can't love learning!
According to Professor Gardner's analysis, IQ tests are based on the concept of monadic intelligence, which means that intelligence is the ability to answer IQ test questions. IQ tests can predict a child's performance in school fairly accurately, but they cannot predict what he will actually do when he leaves school. This is because IQ tests measure only logical or logical plus verbal ability.
Contrary to the monistic view of intelligence, Professor Gardner believes that every human being has at least eight intelligences, eight separate but equal intelligences, each of which is structured differently but all of which function in combination.
Which eight intelligences do humans have?
One is linguistic intelligence, which is the ability to master, use, and express language and words. This ability is most prominent in poets, writers and orators.
The second is mathematical and logical intelligence, that is, mathematical thinking and logical reasoning, the ability to analyze scientifically.
The third is spatial intelligence, which is the ability to form a pattern of the external spatial world in the brain and to be able to use and manipulate that pattern. Sailors, engineers, surgeons, sculptors, and painters are all examples of people with highly developed spatial intelligence.
The fourth is musical intelligence, and people who are engaged in music composition, performance, and other stage performances are usually more prominent in this area.
Fifth is body-motor intelligence, the ability to use the entire body or a part of the body to solve a problem or make a product. Dancers, sports athletes, surgeons, and master craftsmen excel in this area.
Sixth is interpersonal intelligence, which is the ability to understand others. Educators, psychologists, religious leaders, politicians, salesmen, brokers, etc. have strengths in this area.
Seventh is self-cognitive intelligence, which is the ability to penetrate deep into one's inner world, understand one's emotional life, identify one's emotional changes, and experience one's soul activity, i.e., the ability to establish an accurate and true model of oneself and to use this model effectively in real life. Because of the invisibility of this intelligence, the observer needs evidence from language, music, or other manifest intelligence if he or she wants to probe. In general, literary scholars, philosophers, psychologists, theologians, and musicians are people who facilitate the manifestation of their self-perceived intelligence.
Eight is natural intelligence, as evidenced by the ability of people such as Darwin to discover nature. Natural intelligence is a new discovery after the publication of the book Multiple Intelligences.
