The theory of multiple intelligences, developed by psychologist Howard Gardner in the early 1980s, posits that individuals possess eight or more relatively autonomous intelligences that can’t be measured with an IQ test. The theory about the 8 intelligences has practical application for how we go about learning new skills and choosing the type of work we and most satisfying. These “eight multiple intelligences” include linguistic, mathematical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, musical, intrapersonal, interpersonal and naturalistic. In each of these intelligences, there lie strong points to someone and weak points for others. Some people are better at understanding some things than others.
The youth exchange “Intelligence re-framed” will gather young people to explore their learning styles and practically experience their talents, strengths and needs. Participants will explore all 8 intelligences and out in which of one they are the best. These facts will be discovered by variety of activities like dance exercises, problem solving initiatives, artistic searches, visualization and design, team work, writing exercises and simulations that will help participants to understand the level of intelligences they possess. The youth exchange will provide a room for a process of self-discovery in the context of participants’ personal and professional development.
