Now, when one fact is recalled, the other facts</p><p>are also recalled at that moment (or shortly thereafter). This</p><p>phenomenon is called thespread of activation. This is the gist ofmeaningful learning.</p><p>THEORY OF MUT!"E !#TE!$E#%E&amp;</p><p>"Multiple intelligences is a psychological theory about the</p><p>mind. It's a critique of the notion that there's a single</p><p>intelligence which we're born with, which can't be</p><p>changed, and which psychologists can measure. It's based</p><p>on a lot of scientic research in elds ranging from</p><p>psychology to anthropology to biology. It's not based upon</p><p>based on test correlations, which most other intelligence</p><p>theories are based on. The claim is that there are at least</p><p>eight dierent human intelligences. Most intelligence tests</p><p>loo at language or logic or both ! those are ust two of</p><p>the intelligences. The other si# are musical, spatial,</p><p>bodily$inesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, andnaturalist. I mae two claims. The rst claim is that all</p><p>human beings ha%e all of these intelligences. It's part of</p><p>our species denition. The second claim is that, both</p><p>because of our genetics and our en%ironment, no two</p><p>people ha%e e#actly the same prole of intelligences, not</p><p>e%en identical twins, because their e#periences are</p><p>dierent."</p><p>Howard $ardner</p></li><li><p>7/23/2019 Meaningful Learning- MULTIPLE INT.</p><p> 2/3</p><p>s we can see, the theory of multiple intelligences proposes a big</p><p>transformation in the way our schools are run. !ue to the fact that.</p><p>Traditionally school education is mostly focus on linguistic and</p><p>mathematical intelligences. !r. "ardner suggests that teachers</p><p>should be trained to present their lessons in a wide variety of waysusing music, cooperative learning, art activities, role play, multimedia,</p><p>eld trips, inner re#ection, and much more.</p><p>$ completely agree with this point of view, because when you are a</p><p>teacher, you easily perceive that not all your students learn through</p><p>the same way. Therefore, on the one hand, you should have into</p><p>account the di%erent intelligences there are in your class and, on the</p><p>other hand, you have to have a clear idea about the contents and the</p><p>concepts you want the students achieve in order to provide them with</p><p>the biggest range of di%erent activities focused in these multiplesintelligences to cover all their needs.</p><p>#" '#EURO(!#$U!&amp;T!% "RO$R)MM!#$*</p><p>This is a &amp;ognitive educational principle. $t is connected with the</p><p>process in which students obtain the knowledge. $n fact, N' deals</p><p>specically with the various ways in which they do that.</p><p>$n order to obtain knowledge, students have to process information,</p><p>and N' e%ectiveness in helping students gain a better understanding</p><p>of the way they learn.</p><p>s ichard *andler and +ohn "rinder said &amp;( shows us how</p><p>language and beha%iours are really structured, and that this structure</p><p>can be 'modeled' or copied into a reproducible form.</p><p>$n addition, these techni-ues are closely connected to the theory of</p><p>multiple intelligences due to the fact of taking into account the</p><p>di%erent ways that di%erent students learn (visual learning, auditory</p><p>learning or kinaesthetic learning).
