Multiple Intelligences in Teaching and Education: Lessons Learned from Neuroscience

Multiple Intelligences Research and Consulting, Inc., Kent, OH 44240, USA
With this manuscript the Journal of Intelligence wants to give the opportunity to present applied work that is inspired by an intelligence-related framework. This manuscript is neither an empirical manuscript nor is it a review. Instead it explains how a theory of intelligence can be used in teaching and education. We plan to give the floor in our journal to applications of intelligence-related frameworks in an applied field. Paul De Boeck, Editor-in-Chief.

Abstract

This brief paper summarizes a mixed method review of over 500 neuroscientific reports investigating the proposition that general intelligence (g or IQ) and multiple intelligences (MI) can be integrated based on common and unique neural systems. Extrapolated from this interpretation are five principles that inform teaching and curriculum so that education can be strengths-based and personalized to promote academic achievement. This framework is proposed as a comprehensive model for a system of educational cognitive neuroscience that will serve the fields of neuroscience as well as educators. Five key principles identified are culture matters, every brain is unique—activate strengths, know thyself, embodied cognition/emotional rudder, and make it mean something. View Full-Text
