Abstract

Abstract The paper refers to the application of the multiple intelligences theory in a Romanian secondary school based on the profile of intelligences, which resulted from the administration of the MIDAS questionnaire. The results of the questionnaire and the data generated from observations have been used in designing sets of activities for various types of intelligences (logical mathematical and linguistic). The overall activities of students were analyzed and compared to the intelligence's profiles. The current student's activities were also related to the ongoing curriculum prescriptions and recommendations. Study cases were designed for several students. The research has revealed the existence of the types and levels of intelligences, as defined in the theory and raised the question, to what extent the levels of a symbolic approach to learning can possibly be used in the curriculum design from the perspective of this theory.
