The eight types of learners

Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligence proposes that there are eight types of learners which are the following:

  1. musical-rhythmic,
  2. visual-spatial,
  3. verbal-linguistic,
  4. logical-mathematical,
  5. bodily-kinesthetic,
  6. interpersonal,
  7. intrapersonal, and
  8. naturalistic.

How we empower learning in children

Gardner opposes the idea of labelling learners to a specific intelligence. Gardner maintains that his theory should “empower learners”, not restrict them to one modality of learning.  According to Gardner, an intelligence is “a biopsychological potential to process information that can be activated in a cultural setting to solve problems or create products that are of value in a culture.”

An environment for all learning types

At mi kids we set our learning environments up to cater to the different types of learners and use this to help us to determine the different types of learners we have in our room.  This then supports our curriculum and how we deliver our program so that all children benefit and are engaged with our learning experiences.
