We all know enough examples of people who did not do well at school, but went on to become successful in life. These people must have had something remarkable that the school failed to
appreciate, and acknowledge. Formal schooling mostly focuses on Language, Maths, Science, and Social Studies. Subjects like Physical Education and Art, though still taught at school, are considered extras, and bear no value in gauging success and intelligence of a child at school. Ability to work with people, and managing emotions are neither taught, nor appreciated, though they are paramount to one's success.
Professor Howard Gardner from Harvard College devoted his life to understand these varied aspects of Human Intelligence. Since 1999, Professor Gardner has identified eight intelligences: Linguistic, Logical-Mathematical, Musical, Spatial, Bodily/Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, and Naturalistic. We, at Learning Spaces endeavor to nurture these varied Human intelligences with various activities and routines. Below infographic gives a snapshot of the work we are doing.
