Connecting Multiple Intelligences through Open and Distance Learning: Going towards a Collective Intelligence?
Medeiros Vieira, Leandro Mauricio; Ferasso, Marcos; Schröeder, Christine da Silva
European Journal of Open, Distance and E-Learning, v17 n1 p108-117 2014
This theoretical essay is a learning approach reflexion on Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences and the possibilities provided by the education model known as open and distance learning. Open and distance learning can revolutionize traditional pedagogical practice, meeting the needs of those who have different forms of cognitive understanding. This tool has in itself the potential to build knowledge collectively. The conclusions raise new questions for future discussion, shedding some light on the open and distance learning not as a mere tool to spread education, but as a means to reach new levels of comprehension and consciousness, reflecting on the role of education itself.
