Transcript of Educational Constructs: Learning Styles and Creativity

Here is something small... Howard Garner and Multiple Intelligence cre·a·tiv·i·ty [kree-ey-tiv-i-tee] Learning styles and creativity go hand in hand. As an educator, you must be creative to differentiate learning to these multiple intelligences. For example, when learning about different cell processes in biology, include notes and images, dances and songs! Learning Styles Creativity Impact Educational Constructs:
Learning Styles and Creativity An Example: 30 "Gardner's Theory of multiple intelligences states not only do human beings have several different ways of learning and processing information, but these methods are relatively independent of one another" 1 Multiple Intelligence Linguistic Musical Bodily
Kinesthetic Intra-personal Logical- Mathematical Interpersonal Visual
Spatial Students who learn better through words and taking notes or reading Students who understand numbers and mathematical equations better than word problems People who concentrate better working on thier own People who work more efficiently in a group setting Understand best with images, colors and graphics Example: This graphic organizer! More of a hands on learner.
Usually excels in science the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination: the need for creativity in modern industry; creativity in the performing arts. 2 Creativity in Education Pupils who are encouraged to think creatively:

become more interested in discovering things for themselves
are more open to new ideas and challenges
are more able to solve problems
can work well with others
become more effective learners
have greater ownership over their learning. 3 Help promote creativity in learners by:

Providing regular opportunities for hands-on experimentation, problem solving, discussion and collaborative work.
Actively encouraging pupils to question, make connections, envisoning what might be possible and exploring ideas.
Using failure or setbacks as opportunities to learn.
Facilitating open discussion of the problems pupils are facing and how they can solve them.
Asking open-ended questions such as ‘What if…?’ and ‘How might you…?’
Ensuring that assessment procedures reflect and reward creativity, enterprise and innovation. Creativity and learning styles have
influenced much of my teaching. I try to
come up with original ways to teach
concepts and work hard to make them
applicable to all students. I've studied
research on how the male and female
brain differ when it comes to multiple
intelligence and this work has extremly
effected my teaching style. Citations 1- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_Gardner
