Multiple Intelligence, a theory introduced by Howard Garnder in 1983, was revolutionary. It showed the conventional way of learning using mathematical, logical, linguistic, and verbal measurements were not enough to define the intelligence of an individual.
Every person has a combination of nine types of intelligence, making every one unique. By identifying the makeup of each individual and providing a way of learning that focuses on their strengths, will help in personal and academic development.
As the capabilities of students get recognition, they will gain confidence in their skills. Children feel motivated to find their strengths and interests. Due to the increase in self-esteem, it encourages them to work on their weaknesses, resulting in all-round development.
Due to the diversity of learning capabilities, offering opportunities will help students grow. By learning about themselves, they will feel comfortable being in the classroom. They will be more receptive and productive and ready to engage. Also, they retain what they learn in the classroom, creating the foundation for a bright and successful future.
