Transcript of Learning Styles &
Forms of Intelligence
Created by Tatiana Hernandez

Technology assists teachers and students bringing them a step closer to a place where they are confident to
successfully integrate learning styles and forms of intelligences
in our classrooms through technology devices.
Lets take a closer look!
Visual learners use images, colors, maps, graphs and more to organize information, communicate to others, and retain information by observing and memorizing. Incorporating technology with models supports this learning style (NET Standard 1.C.). Providing models, graphics, and images will benefit ESE and ESOL students as well during lectures and activities to give visual references. Using images for the key words in large font throughout the activities is a great way of addressing students' ESOL and ESE needs. Some devices that may be used are iPads, online images, and smart boards to present the visuals.
Devices that may be used include
online timers, digital clocks, and Excel,
Powerpoint and more. Ipads may also be utilized to promote hand and eye coordination with different educational applications. Being able to use a large screen instead of a small mouse will facilitate ESE students. Kinesthetic ESOL learners will have the opportunity engage in applications that support English comprehension.
Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligencences (develop, in 1983) has revolutionized what "smart" means to teachers and the way the teach.
Gardner has theorized about eight
original forms of intelligence. However, more forms have developed after the
80's. It is claimed that most schools
give an inappropriate emphasis in
logical/mathematical and verbal
material. Let's change this!
A learning style is an individual's natural pattern of processing information in learning situations. There are three main types of learning styles: Visual, Audio, and Kinesthetic. Being able to identify each student's learning style will particularly facilitate teachers in planning ahead to incorporate technology in the classroom. It will also support & encourage ESE and ESOL students, thus addressing disabilities and language proficiencies.
Students displaying this type of learning style involves
reading, writing, and speaking, otherwise known as "Word Smart". Students in this spectrum find deep and complex meaning of words being capable of persuading and retelling stories. The vast variety of devices available for these types of learners may include but are not limited to Pod casts, iPods, voice threads, group discussions, online discussions, etc. Being able to create bilingual pod casts (If you're a bilingual teachers) and having access to pause, play and replay will facilitate ESOL students with the opportunity to use online dictionaries.
Logical/Mathematical students are notorious for using numbers to solve problems and calculate solutions. Logical learners use patterns and connections to reason, as well as inductive and deductive reasoning patterns. Students displaying this for of intelligence would benefit from visuals on smartboards and projectors to see numerical problems. ESE and ESOL students will be facilitated with visual representations of the numbers using counting bears, legos and other objects.
Visual and Spatial learners display an understanding of pictures and graphs to acquire information. Visualizing and processing information three dimensionally allows these learners to identify angle and patterns. Most of these learners become artists, pilots and architects. Though these students prefer the use of images, providing labels in large font will support letter recognition and visual memory to promote English language proficiency.
Visual / Spatial Intelligence
Bodily intelligence is the capacity to manipulate objects
and use a variety of physical skills. Dancers, football players, and gymnasts are examples of this. Students will be able to create a record a dance that helps them recall the information by giving each step the corresponding meaning.
ESE students will be able to be part of this activity by typing a report on the movements and its meanings. ESOL students will be assisted with an online dictionary for any word that they don't understand.
People with intrapersonal intelligence are adept at looking inward and figuring out their own feelings, motivations and goals. Thye are introspective and seek understanding. They are intuitive and typically introverted. They learn best independently. Students will be able to memorize information by working individually while making a 5-Day journal on their iPads or tablets about their understanding of the content right after it's been taught.
Students will be able to learn the given content by
being exposed to nature while watching tutorial videos on their iPad/Tablets. Nature will jelp them concentrate and relax through the lesson. ESE students will be assisted through this activity by providing them with the necessary equipment. like wheelchairs, Ipad or tablets with braille, for them to feel comfortable outdoors. ESOL students will be assisted by being able to use their google search on their technology devices. With this they can look up word definitions or concepts they don't completely understand yet, and this will also give them an
opportunity to expand their knowledge
on the English language.
Interpersonal intelligence is the ability to understand and interact effectively with others. Young adults with this kind of intelligence are leaders among their peers, are good at communicating, and seem to understand others' feelings and motives. Students will be able to work in study groups while communicating the information they have acquire through the period of class. They will record this discussion on their computers to be able to
create a final report for the class,
Definition: Sensitivity and capacity to tackle deep questions about human existence, such as the meaning of life, why do we die, and how did we get here. Students will be able to create a "What is Life" video survey to 5 classmates. ESE students will be assisted by another student with the media devices and also by being able to use the online dictionary on their potable device. NET Standard 3.d. Process data and report results.
Using images for the key words in large font throughout the activities is a great way of addressing students' ESOL and ESE needs. Some devices that may be used are iPads, online images, and smart boards to present the visuals.
Audio learners attain information
by listening to verbal lessons and lectures. Auditory learners also take into account the pitch of the voice, tone, speed and repitition, Utilizing a variety of media and formats to communicate with your students (NET Standard 2.b.) will successfully address a diverse audience - including ESE and ESOL students.
Providing open accessibility to refer back to lectures and lessons provide ESE students additional support. Utilizing Podcasts and voicethreads that allow students to pause, replay and move forward, give ESE students an opportunity to research and define words to better their comprehension.
A kinesthetic learner embraces any subject that
engages them in physical activity. Teaching strategies
that should be incorporated are class experiments
involving touching, grabbing, and building. Having students
apply digital tools to gather and evaluate information
using different sources and media (NET Standard 3.b.)
help involve the entire classroom and small groups.
ESOL students would benefit from
using Podcasts to pause and play, giving them an opportunity to explore and research words and definitions. NET Standard 3 would be implemented with the use of digital tools to gather information which in turn provide a visual as well.
ESOL students might also
benefit from voicethreads or ipad apps
that repeat words outloud as they view the image to better register information. Some practical technological devices used to facilitate visual learners include smart boards, projectors, internet, Powerpoint, Photoshop, etc. ESE students may also benefit from the same ESOL teaching strategies.
ESE students will be able to
create their own learning songs with the
assistance of non-ESE students. ESOL students will successful in this by providing them with online dictionaries and students whose first language in English. This will help them create their own song to be able to learn all the information they need. NET Standard 4. Plan and manage activities to develop a solution or complete a project.
Description: Musical intelligence is the capacity to
discern pitch, rhythm, timbre, and tone. This intelligence enables us to recognize, create, reproduce, and reflect on music. There is often an effective connection between music and emotions, students will be able to create music using special soft wares on the computer in order to positively canalize their emotions about the content they needs to learn. They will also be able to make songs with the proper
content which will help them remember the information
they need to recall later on.
Another technological device that may be good to use in the classroom to facilitate verbal learners is using projectors wit hullets on key lecture points and voice recorders (often found in today's most basic phones) to successfully record lectures.
ESE students will be
properly assisted with non-ESE students
throughout the length of the group activity, in case they need any help with the computers or communicating with others. ESOL students will be able to do this activity using a dictionary in order to understand what everyone is saying during the study group sessions. NET Standard 2.a. Interact, collaborate, and publish with peers, experts, others employing a variety of digital environments and media.
ESE students will be assisted by having non-ESE students at their disposition for any circumstance they need help in. ESOL students will be assisted by having an online dictionary on their iPads or tablets so they can write this journal without any problems. NET Standard 4.c. Collect and analyze data to identify solutions and/or make informed decisions.
