My understanding of Gardners theory on the learning process is basically, there are different parts of the brain that function better than others, depending on your biology and social settings. What that means, to me, is that we all learn things differently. Someone from a highly active background, or social setting, will have a higher chance of the bodily-kinesthetic style of learning, than someone from a more intellectual background or environment. That we all have the capability to learn from any of them, but some areas of learning are more prominent in certain people, than they are in others.
I have never really given a great deal of thought to the way I learn, until I started taking this course. With this assignment, especially, I had to take a good look at myself. While I was doing so, it came to me that the type of intelligence, that mostly applies to me, is spatial-visual. I am a person that likes to ponder on things. I like to get a good mental picture of what is going on, and then come up with all the possible outcomes. Then I can finally assess which one will work out the best. It may take me a little longer to complete the task at hand, but I know it will be done correctly. I also believe that I do well with logical mathematical learning as well. I like to solve problems, figure out the patterns, and see what comes next. I believe that these two types of learning are closely related.
I think we all have the capability to learn with, and from, all of these different forms of learning. However, I believe that to use the other forms, that are not our strong suit, will take lots of practice and time. I love to listen to music, I can keep up with the beat, but that does not mean that I can compose music. It is also the same with the bodily-kinesthetic learning process, I am not an athlete, but with time and practice, I can master the basic skills. I believe this is a way that we get our individuality. We all have different learning styles, which can make us all unique, in our own way. It can be a great process of learning who we are, and what we want to become. Also, it will help us in attaining out goals for the future, if we know our strong points, as well as, our weakness, so we can work to better that for ourselves
