“Intelligence is the capacity to do something useful in the society in which we live. Intelligence is the ability to respond successfully to new situations and the capacity to learn from one’s past experience.” - Dr. Howard Gardner
Dr. Howard Gardner, a professor of cognition and education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, developed his theory of multiple intelligence twenty years ago. Dr. Gardner says that people employ several different types of intelligence, rather than one general type.
According to Dr. Gardner there are 8 types of intelligence.
Every child born is inherent with one or more dominant intelligence. By activating and stimulating the dominant intelligence the child can be made to excel and perform very well in school and later in career. Even those intelligences that are not by nature dominant in the child can be nurtured systematically using certain activities.
These activities are well researched and scientifically proven. Each activity is designed and created so as to stimulate and nurture the Eight different multiple intelligence.
While our “My Smart Baby” kit consisting of the “chips of knowledge” aims to stimulate the right brain’s hidden capabilities, especially the “photographic memory”, the MI activities are aimed at enriching the left brain as well. This makes the “My Smart Baby” a holistic program for infants & toddlers aimed at nurturing the capabilities of both the left and the right brain.
