Theory of Multiple Intelligences

The theory of multiple intelligences was developed by Dr Howard Gardner, a professor of education at Harvard University. Dr Gardner believed that intelligence is the ability to create an effective product or offer a service that is valued in a culture, and proposed eight different intelligences  to account for a broader range of human potential in children and adults:

 

  • Musical-Rhythmic and Harmonic (Rhythm and Music)

  • Visual-Spatial (Visual Arts)

  • Verbal-Linguistic (Words, Language and Writing)

  • Logical-Mathematical (Analysing problems and Mathematical operations)

  • Bodily-Kinaesthetic (Physical movement and Motor control)

  • Interpersonal (Understanding and Interacting with others)

  • Intrapersonal (Introspection and Self-reflection)

  • Naturalistic (Nature)

 

Dr Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences promotes the development of all eight types of intelligence in children. Through various activities and hands on materials, our students have opportunities to reinforce their strengths and improve their weak points.

 

For even and firm brain development, we educate from infants to Grade 2 with a diverse and well-structured curriculum.
