If you are a teacher and have the desire to improve your methods and consequently reach your teaching goals and objectives then you need first to learn about your learners and identify their needs to have that in mind when you prepare your lesson or lecture.
Learners needs vary according to their abilities and preferences but what is meant by that. learners differ from each other, even brothers prefer learning the same lesson in a different style and here comes learning styles which we as teachers and educators need to take into consideration while teaching.
But what does that have to do with different types of intelligence or multiple intelligences, the difference between both learning styles and multiple intelligences is illustrated here as following:
The theory of multiple intelligences says that individuals are born with the innate capacity to succeed in a particular domain, and education should help to identify and develop students’ innate capacities.
The idea of learning styles predicts that each student has a particular way of learning that works best for them, such as visually or through hands-on activities; therefore, teachers should ensure that students can learn in the style that best suits their preference.
To conclude, what can be inferred here is that if you want to be a good educator and productive and effective in your teaching you must adopt these in your plans.
