Modem teaching practices are bound to a cognitive exercise in modern curriculum. It not only reduces the broader scope of creative learning but also undermines the chances of the holistic development of the child. Similar idea was proposed by Howard Gardner in the theory of multiple intelligences, where human intelligence differentiates into specific 'modalities', rather than seeing intelligence as dominated by a single general ability. Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence is one of those nine intelligences. Bodily-Kinesthetic (movement) Intelligence supports the ability to process information using their body and the way to connect with the world in a physical manner. Children who support bodily-kinesthetic intelligence are liable to be quite capable at controlling their bodies; they become skilled through physical contact with their environment more than through mental movements and they act together with others in physical ways. Precision, control and agility are the hallmarks of such as athletes, dancers, karate masters, professional soccer players, cricketers and actors, etc. Ecological Systems Theory bestowed by Bronfenbrenner (1979) discribes that there are five systems arranged from the closest to the individual to the farthest: the microsystem, mesosystem, exosystem, macrosystem, and chronosystem. Hence, the current research was intended at finding out the flow of various human ecological factors on Multiple Intelligence of young adolescents.

Abstract


Modem teaching practices are bound to a cognitive exercise in modern curriculum. It not only reduces the broader scope of creative learning but also undermines the chances of the holistic development of the child. Similar idea was proposed by Howard Gardner in the theory of multiple intelligences, where human intelligence differentiates into specific 'modalities', rather than seeing intelligence as dominated by a single general ability. Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence is one of those nine intelligences. Bodily-Kinesthetic (movement) Intelligence supports the ability to process information using their body and the way to connect with the world in a physical manner. Children who support bodily-kinesthetic intelligence are liable to be quite capable at controlling their bodies; they become skilled through physical contact with their environment more than through mental movements and they act together with others in physical ways. Precision, control and agility are the hallmarks of such as athletes, dancers, karate masters, professional soccer players, cricketers and actors, etc. Ecological Systems Theory bestowed by Bronfenbrenner (1979) discribes that there are five systems arranged from the closest to the individual to the farthest: the microsystem, mesosystem, exosystem, macrosystem, and chronosystem. Hence, the current research was intended at finding out the flow of various human ecological factors on Multiple Intelligence of young adolescents.
