Multiple Intelligence Theory

Intelligence is defined as the potential of an individual. It encompasses all levels of existence – our body and mind. Dr Howard Gardner, in a ground breaking work identified seven different intelligences. These are Math-Logical, Verbal-Linguistic, Body-Kiinaesthetic, Visual Spatial, Interpersonal, Natural, Musical.

Each of us are endowed with all these intelligences in some measure. Some more and or some less. BrainSTARS’ Programme aims to identify individuals’ (teachers and parents) strengths and create awareness among them and also to help identify the same in their children during classroom/other sessions. Furthermore, activities conducted during the programme and other suggested activities should help teachers utilise it in classroom training sessions to identify, develop and nurture them on a long term basis in a child.
