Humans are intelligent creatures. For proof, one only needs to look at what human civilization has accomplished throughout history. However, intelligence isn’t a single unified trait. Intelligence isn’t simply, “being knowledgeable.” This is what Global Tutor aims to share at their upcoming APEX Workshop for Teachers.
What is the APEX Workshop for Teachers?
Previously, we’ve seen Global Tutor hosts APEX workshops aimed at students. The latest one that was held focused on the topic of female empowerment. However, this new workshop is different. That’s because it’s not aimed at students. Rather this one is aimed at teachers.
As any teacher would’ve seen, there are two types of students. The students that learn everything at a rapid pace. The students that struggle to learn anything. Of course, these students vary by subject. Some excel in Math while struggle with English. Some struggle in History but excel in Chemistry. And the list goes on.
This might be a conundrum for some teachers. Yet, the answer is actually pretty simple. Intelligence isn’t a trait with a single definition. It’s not merely being knowledgeable of everything. Rather, we humans have more than one type of intelligence. Every person has multiple types of intelligence actually. Some of it gets suppressed, while others were developed. This is what defines you as a person.
Utilizing the studies of Professor Howard Gardner, Global Tutor aims to help teachers identify these different types of intelligence. This would be achieved through a series of tests designed for this purpose. Afterward, the results of these tests would be used to help teachers create new lessons. This would be through the use of technology provided by Microsoft for classrooms.
