1. Who should take the module?
The Multiple Intelligence Module is for parents, teachers and care givers of children within early years age group. The module has been scientifically designed and developed by Learn2Teach Institute with a special focus on early childhood developmental stages that enable candidates to understand holistic learning philosophies and individual educational needs. However, many principal and fundamentals to raise a HAPPY child can be applied for all age groups of children with minor adaptations.
2. Content of the module
In the Multiple Intelligence Module you will get a fresh perspective to intelligence and learn how intelligence cannot be defined with a singular number but in fact intelligence can be measured and developed across 8 different facets. This philosophy has been coined by Harvard Professor Dr. Howard Gardner. I hope that by the end of this module, we can steer away from the standard question of ‘HOW SMART IS MY CHILD’ and move towards asking ‘HOW IS MY CHILD SMART’.
