The book was launched on the auspicious occasion of the GPSC workshop held on 17th Dec 2019, by esteemed guests – Capt. Indu Boken Kasana (DEO, Gurugram) and Dr. Roma Kumar (Clinical Psychologist).
In the workshop, the esteemed panel also included Mrs. Mamta Sharma (Coordinator of the Synchro Study Program, AIS-46) Mrs. Lubna Seth and Mrs. Sumity Kapoor. They shared their valuable thoughts on the essence of the book.
With over 28 years of experience as a teacher, a mentor, a trainer, a skill developer, and a tireless worker for the cause of kids, Ms. Arti Chopra conducted a workshop following the book launch event on enhancing learning through Multiple Intelligence or MI. There were many engrossing activities for the teachers during the workshop including a self-analysis on the eight MI criterion. Arti ma’am also made the teachers become comfortable with each other by an involving activity. Each teacher then had to make a lesson plan, keeping in mind the 8 Intelligences necessary for the growth of young minds. Enhancing the visual-spatial intelligence of teachers, ma’am encouraged everyone to make big meaningful shapes like squares, triangles, etc. from tangrams and, creating logos from Judo straws while working in groups. To check the understanding of teachers from this engrossing workshop, each group was given an Intelligence out of the 8 to be performed upon in a creative manner.
The key takeaways from this workshop were that it is important to cater to the different needs of children, understand and respect their strengths and weaknesses. To break the monotony of the classroom, it is important to include fun elements and introduce topics in an interesting and lively manner. But, without constantly working on our own skills the noble task that we have upon ourselves will not be complete. After all, MI is a concept that recognizes that each individual possesses these intelligence in different proportions.
