Eight Ways of Looking at Intelligence | MindShift

Eight Ways of Looking at Intelligence | MindShift | JT Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

"..considering eight ways of looking at intelligence—eight perspectives provided by the science of learning. A few words about that term: The science of learning is a relatively new discipline born of an agglomeration of fields: cognitive science, psychology, philosophy, neuroscience. Its project is to apply the methods of science to human endeavors—teaching and learning—that have for centuries been mostly treated as an art.

As with anything to do with our idiosyncratic and unpredictable species, there is still a lot of art involved in teaching and learning. But the science of learning can offer some surprising and useful perspectives on how we guide and educate young people. And so: Eight Ways Of Looking At Intelligence."

What are the eight ways? The short version is listed below, but the post provides longer descriptions as well as links to additional information.

* Situation can make us smarter. They can evoke or supress our intelligence.

* Beliefs can make us smarter. Think of mindsets as in growth mindset or fixed mindset.

* Expertise can make us smarter. Deep knowledge does make a difference.

* Attention can make us smarter. Resisting the urge to multitask and staying focused on the task is important.

* Emotions can make us smarter. Our emotional state impacts how we think and act.

* Technology can make us smarter. We need to learn when technology can help us, and when to put it away.

* Our bodies can make us smarter. The physical state of our body impacts our ability to learn.

* Relationships can make us smarter. A sense of belonging can make a difference.

Las situaciones que vivimos diariamente, nuestras creencias, la experiencia que acumulamos, la capacidad de atención, el sentimiento de la esperanza que albergamos, son algunos aspectos que pueden mejorar nuestra inteligencia. La tecnología también nos puede hacer más inteligentes o más “tontos”. Estudios del cerebro han encontrado que cuando usamos herramientas, incluyendo dispositivos electrónicos, nuestra mente los puede asociar como una extensión de nuestro cuerpo. Sin embargo, utilizar la internet precisamente como parte de nuestro cerebro para almacenar hechos, sin la necesidad de retenerlos mentalmente, puede atrofiar habilidades clave para la sociedad del conocimiento. El pensamiento crítico, la capacidad de resolver problemas, el trabajo colaborativo y la creatividad, entre otros, no pueden emerger en el “disco duro” de un cerebro humano vacío de contenidos.

Tony Meehan's curator insight, July 15, 2014 4:26 PM

interesting article highlighting the evidence that intelligence is not a fixed entity but is something that needs to be nurtured and helped grow in all of us.  The evidence from the fields of cognitive science, psychology, philosophy, neuroscience combine to create the science of learning.  As educators we have to get to grips with the complexities of learning and we can only do this by gaining a deeper understanding of these fields and how they help us reframe our approaches to teaching and learning.

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...
