Your Many Intelligences, version 2015

Happy New Year!  Welcome to 2015!!  Ready for a new semester?

How was your break?  Ready to jump into school, learning, and your intelligence?  (Of course you are!)

Have you ever heard of Howard Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligences?  Instead of just IQ, Dr. Gardner suggested people have a variety of "types" of intelligence.  He originally proposed 7 intelligences, then 8, and now some say 9, but here are two video options for you to learn about the different intelligences.

This video "defines" each intelligence with animated images:

This video looks like a student project, and there is a bit of narration with the images:

I know you're anxious to determine your type of intelligence, and here's your opportunity!  Please take one of the surveys online found either herehere (click "Take the Test") or here.  All three are different formats and offer different type of feedback, but my scores were the same.  Did you have one dominant intelligence, or were there several top intelligences?  Dr. Gardner's official site is called MI Oasis, and he still teaches at Harvard.  You may find additional definitions and more information about intelligences at the websites hereherehere, or here.

Next, please submit your findings and reflections in this Google form.  Please complete the surveys and the responses by next Tuesday, January 13, 10 PM.

Thank you, and as always, I look forward to reading your responses!
(Don't forget to hit "Submit" at the end of your survey!)
