It has been claimed by some researchers that our intelligence or ability to understand the world around us is complex. Some people are better at understanding some things than others.
For some of us it is relatively easy to understand how a flower grows but it is immensely difficult for us to understand and use a musical instrument. For others music might be easy but playing football is difficult.
Instead of having one intelligence it is claimed that we have several different intelligences.
These are listed below:
- Body Smart
- Word Smart
- Number Smart
- Visual / Spatial
- Nature Smart
What special intelligences do you have? You can find out by answering a few simple questions
The Birmingham Grid for Learning Multiple Intelligence Test is quite simply the best online test of its type I have seen it caters to multiple languages is very easy to understand and produces a very simple to read radar outlining your strengths and weaknesses in each of the intelligence areas.
This is a brilliant task to do as a class to identify your learners at both a whole group and individual level not to mention it is totally free.
How can I use this in the classroom? I always get my students to get a screen grab of their final radar and make notes regarding whether or not they agree or disagree with their radar and justify why?
