Abstract:


This study developed an adaptive learning system applying Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences. It supports adaption and reinforces individual learning. Existing learning systems provided with the same instruction content are able to show little consideration for individual learners. These learning systems do not, therefore, encourage individual learning; they fail to provide different instruction methods for differing learning styles. This proposed system provides instruction content based on an effective instruction method using Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences by taking into consideration his or her individual intelligence type. We presented an adaptive learning system applying Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences to social studies classes in an elementary school in Korea. Our developed adaptive learning system will contribute to effective learning which considers learner’s individual differences.
