Multiple Intelligences, Personalised Learning
Professional consultancy for this project is provided by our international partners
MAW Education http://www.discover-multiple-intelligences.com/
A number of visits by international experts on
Multiple Intelligences and Learning Styles are a regular feature of this project.
Linguistic / Logical, mathematical, scientific / Visual, spatial / Bodily, kinesthetic / Musical / Naturalistic / Interpersonal / Intrapersonal / Spiritual, existential Intelligences
Brain research shows that we use different parts of the brain for different purposes and we have a multiple number of intelligences. Whilst each of us has all of these intelligences, some will be stronger than others, and this varies from person to person. Knowing this, teachers are changing their teaching methods so that all children succeed, not just those who reach high marks in the traditional IQ test which is based on only two of these intelligences. Many teachers need help to make this change in their teaching methods and The Achievers? Programme is providing workshops through MAW Education to explain the theory of MI and provide practical advice for classroom teachers and for school leaders. Additional consultancy visits support schools further, enabling them to reach current international standards of teaching and learning.
Whole class teaching
Teachers plan lessons, knowing that students have different learning styles.
They teach through their Multiple Intelligences.
The Achievers’ Programme with MAW Education
have trained and advised over 1,600 teachers across India.
Assam, Chandigarh, Delhi, Haryana, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh.
“How can we teach our large classes using methods that meet current international expectations?”
“How can we cover the vast curriculum using these methods?”
“How can we reach the high standards expected, if there is so much practical work?”
We all learn in different ways.
With whole-class teaching only some students succeed – those who learn linguistically. Combine whole class teaching with group and individually planned activities and you will uncover the curriculum in a way that enables all students to succeed.
We help schools to integrate multiple intelligences theory into their curriculum by training staff and guiding teachers' lesson planning on the basis of MI theory.
Students are then assessed using MI methods.
