Why is it necessary to know the types of intelligence and the types of learning in order to create games?

Each child has a predominant and special form of intelligence, and any teacher should have the knowledge to recognize this intelligence and its capabilities. Multiple Intelligence Theory was developed in 1983 by Howard Gardner. He had suggested that the traditional notion of intelligence (IQ – the intelligence coefficient) has its limitations and instead he had proposeed eight different types of intelligence to cover a much wider palette of the human intellect.

On the other hand, there are 8 learning styles associated with types of intelligence at school There are eight types of intelligence: verbal, kinesthetic, naturalistic, logic-mathematical, spatial, musical, intrapersonal, interpersonal.  For each type of intelligence there is a corresponding learning style. Depending on the type of intelligence a child has, you can find the essential methods and techniques that make learning easier for this particular child.

For each educational game created it is necessary to consider certain objectives in order to develop a certain skill. Starting from this remark, educational games created by our pupils involved in this project will transform the learning process into a very enjoyable and entertaining one. These games should make pupils aware of the peculiarities of the learning process and so they will better understand our world!
