Learning Styles (Gardner)

Intelligence can be defined as the ability to solve problems one encounters in real life, to generate new problems to solve, and to make something or offer a service that is valued in one’s culture. The following intelligences reinforce the crosscultural perspective of cognition: linguistic, logicalmathematical, spatial, body-kinesthetic, musical, interpersonal, and intrapersonal. It is good to challenge the human mind to learn using any of the intelligences, but the mind can flourish when it has the opportunity to learn through its strengths.
