Multiple intelligence: Training program for educators
“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
This is the concept of training. Being qualified, whether it is being educationally or professionally qualified does not end the process of learning. As an educator to keep us upgraded we should have continuous drill of our mind. The reason behind it is that when we teach our learners, we should also be familiar with the changes happening around us in the field of education.
“Lifelong learning is the key to success.” Keeping this in mind, Gajera trust keeps on organizing training programs for the educators on regular intervals. This way they are always up to date with the current pedagogical changes that are occurring.
Now, over the past few years, research in the field of learning has steered to the revelation of the “Theory of Multiple Intelligences”. In short, this theory states that each person has different ways of understanding and to go through their daily routine they use different intelligences. In the field of education a child can learn the same concept in different ways and pace depending on the intelligence. To understand this theory Gajera Trust organized a seminar on “Multiple intelligence” for all our educators as a part of Educators training program. The session was conducted by Ms. Sudha Shah, who is a certified teacher’s trainer and has an experience of more than 15 years in this vast field.
The program begun with a welcome speech by Ms. Bijal Chavada. The session was related to a child’s psychology and understanding their mind. It was activity based and easy to understand. All eight intelligences were explained in detail with good examples. Throughout the session all the educators were engrossed completely and were involved in the interactive session too. Ms. Sudha focused on how the learning skill of each child can be monitored in the classroom and their intelligence can be cultivated on a daily basis. It was overall a good session. The program ended with a vote of thanks and felicitation by our Principal Mr. Asish Debnath.
