New Online 'Spatial Intelligence' Child Care Training Promotes Development of Multiple Intelligences
ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an IACET approved, nationally accredited, distance training institution dedicated exclusively to the child care and education workforce, is proud to announce the addition of Exploring Visual/Spatial Intelligence to the online child care training course catalog.
This intermediate-level course examines strategies for promoting children's spatial intelligence, one of the nine intelligences identified by developmental psychologist Howard Gardner in his influential Theory of Multiple Intelligences. Spatial skills, or "picture smarts," are used by painters, sculptors, photographers, architects, fashion designers, graphic artists, interior designers, movie directors, pilots, navigators, military strategists, engineers, and city planners.
"Incorporating spatial intelligence into the curriculum can add a whole new dimension to the learning environment," says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. "It contains valuable information to assist an early childhood educator help every child reach his or her full potential."
