MI Theory and Technology

1. The relationship between emotions and learning is that they both occur in the brain and are correlated due to the fact that they are both relay stations for one another. For example, if an individual is struggling in a class, he/she may tend to show anger and frustration as opposed to one that may not be struggling in a class, where the student would display some sort of happiness or a more peaceful nature.

2. The MI theory could support this relationship because if one has multiple sources of intelligence the chances are he/she will also have multiple emotions for each type of intelligence. 

3. An example of how technology could support my strongest MI in my weakest subject area is that I could use different types of softwares and technological services that come along with technology itself so that I could gain intelligence on certain subjects in my weak area. 

4. The MI theory is significant regarding teaching and learning in the 21st Century because in this day in age, we have many more types of subjects being taught as opposed to earlier years. With that being said, with the MI theory, we are able teach and also learn these new subjects and spread new information for people to take in. 

5. "Emotions are the relay stations between sensory input and thinking."

  1. I really like the set up of this blog. The contrast between shades of blue makes it very easy to focus on the text box. I only wish the font color was a little darker for those who may not see well.
    I also liked your writing technique. It was easy to ready and went over all the key points as the directions instructed. I feel you could really understand the MI theory from this ready.I think sub titles to the outline would have been helpful before each paragraph for those who dont know its for an assignment. Also, your siting was clear and easy to read!

  2. I really enjoy your theme and your background of your page it really captures your eye and makes you feel interested on the writing on the page. Your post was very good and answered the questions that were being talked about. Used good examples about what the MI theory is and how someone outside of our class could learn what it is very easily by reading your blog
