Have you ever wondered why your students react in different ways to the activities that you do in the class? Why do some students really enjoy working in groups whilst others are much more productive working alone? Why some students doodle in their note books?The answer is in the theory of multiple intelligences (MI), an evidence-based theory developed by Professor Howard Gardner. MI theory claims that human beings have a number of discrete intellectual capacities. This offers educators a powerful way to address diverse learner profiles.
