Subject Enrichment Program
Educators today deal with many issues in their classrooms from students behaviour problems to curriculum concerns. Many Educators are searching for fresh and innovative ways to approach these issues. One approach is the Multiple Intelligences approach to teaching. These strategies are based on the Multiple Intelligences theory developed by Howard Gardner in 1983 that all people have within them many "intelligences" or capabilities.
A workshop was organized at Gajera International School, Utran on the topic “Multiple Intelligence and its implications”. It was conducted by Dr. P.V. Satya Ramesh who is a recipient of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, International Educator’s Honour in 2021. He has written more than 40 articles on diverse topics related to education that have been published in prestigious educational magazines. Various techniques were discussed in the workshop using which a teacher can achieve interest of each and every student of the class. The eight major areas of Multiple Intelligence namely: Linguistic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Naturalistic, bodily-kinesthetics, logical-mathematical, musical and spatial. Teachers got several fresh and innovative ideas on how they can create interest of students in the class.
The conclusion of the workshop was that teachers who use multiple intelligence strategies in their classrooms address the dominant intelligences of all their students by presenting subject matter in ways that use language, numbers, physical surroundings, sound, the body, and social skills.
