Incorporating multiple intelligences in the classroom

This is to let you know that a book has been added to the DMI website that would be an excellent buy for class teachers. Many of you have been asking for such a book.

It is the third edition of 'Teaching and Learning through Multiple Intelligences' by Linda Campbell, Bruce Campbell and Dee Dickinson.

Howard Gardner himself has reviewed it very positively indeed.

You can order a copy today from the website It is featured near the beginning of the home page.

Books, videos, assessment and web-conferencing software

People purchase from and come back to this site because we provide a personal service.

When you write and tell us about your work we search for more books, videos, assessment information or new technology, such as web-conferencing software, that could help you with your work. We then let you know when they are available to be ordered or used. What is needed we try to provide. For example, the initial newsletter was recently translated into Arabic so that all teachers on the training course in Qatar, whether Arabic speaking or bilingual, could read more about the theory of multiple intelligences and apply it to their teaching and to their students' learning.

Other people have told us that in their country it is difficult to find these or other good books at all. We listen to your concern and try to find a way round your problem.

Thank you for sharing your interests, concerns and work with us.

I thought a picture would make this Blog less impersonal.

Hello, and welcome!


Brain functions, Multiple Intelligences, Mind and Memory

The website was originally set up in response to the large number of people who where searching the Internet for information on Multiple Intelligences. It was not a subject I had researching into myself, but it is linked to my own teacher training and aims as a teacher to bring out the individual talent of each pupil. I was Froebel trained and through this training learned, early on in my training, to observe how individual pupils learn. I only wish that teachers' training now-a-days gave students those same opportunities. Almost every course we did, at sometime involved working with a group of children and observing how they learned. It is with this background that I find the theory of Multiple Intelligences so interesting.

I began by finding ten books and two videos that would assist those who were searching the web for information. This, I thought, would be a start for anyone new to the subject and might fill gaps in the knowledge of those already familiar with MI theory. As a result, teachers, professors and researchers have contacted me from many different countries.

This week I have added books and videos to the site on the related themes of the Brain, Mind and Memory. I hope these too will be of interest to you and add to your knowledge .

Multiple Intelligence, Reading and Writing, Time Management, Brochures, Presentations.

The website has been updated recently and additional ebooks have been added. They are by three different authors.

I wrote the first ebook after reading some of the books you have bought. In chapter 3, I comment, from my own teaching and inspecting experience, on Thomas Armstrong's book 'The Multiple Intelligences of Reading and Writing'. His book is well worth having. I wonder if you have had similar experiences to the ones I describe.

The second author, Robert Boudch, has written many ebooks. I have chosen two for you. The first would be useful to professionals who work to tight schedules and have heavy work loads. It gives very structured advice on how to make the best use of your time. His second ebook gives equally well-structured advice on how to make more use of a brochure to advertise your services or goods. If you are self employed or run a small business, this would be well worth looking at. Both ebooks are written in a very easy style to read and remember.

The third author, Graham Jones, writes many ebooks and reports on a range of psychological issues, such as child psychology, parenting and the application of child psychology to business. The link on my webpage will take you to his website. However, the three ebooks I have listed for you would be helpful to any teacher, headteacher of lecturer about to give a presentation. If you are about to go for an interview or run an inservice training course, you are likely to find these ebooks very useful indeed.

Have a look at these new additions to the site and let me know which you find the most useful when you have read them. Here is the link for you:

Education Consultancy - Teaching Assistants provides information about different education consultancy that I offer, with some background information, so that you know on what experience it is based.

My most recent work has been working for four months (February to June this year) in Qatar, a rapidly developing Gulf state in the Middle East, where I joined a team of three other trainers who were training teachers for the new government Independent Schools that are being opened there. It was a wonderful experience and I am grateful to all with whom I worked.

Next year I expect to be involved in the UK, amongst other work, with the initiative to train classroom assistants to become Higher Level Teaching Assistants.

Self employed and setting up a website

MAW Education began in 1994 when I started to inspect schools. I had previously been a teacher and then headteacher, employed by others. As an OFSTED Inspector I had to become self-employed, and as such have a business. This was new to me, so the obvious name to give the business was my own initials, which I thought might also be useful for advertising purposes such as MAW Education - 'Is what you are looking for MAW (more) Education?' - or some such phrase!

During the ten years I was inspecting schools I had no need, and no time, to develop the business, but I did set up the first website with advice from my bank and after attending a Bootcamp, run by the IMC, to learn how to set one up and develop it. They - the Internet Marketing Centre, based in Canada and the USA - have given me invaluable help and support ever since.
