Progress Pre-School Gold recently held its Multiple Intelligence Recognition Day.
I learned that advocating multiple intelligence means focusing on various facets of intelligence to create balanced and successful children.
Rhea Villareal, senior product manager of Progress Pre-School Gold, explained that the program seeks ways for parents and educators to recognize that developing multiple intelligence is just as relevant as academic performance.
Kim Atienza, himself a multi-achiever, was the commencement speaker. He told the crowd how his well-rounded character has been his key to success. Focusing on multiple intelligence equipped Kim to engage the world with confidence.
Pharmaceutical firm Wyeth is partnering with the Reading Association of the Philippines to further promote multiple intelligence. The two groups are focused on improving national reading programs and teaching procedures through teacher training and research.
Jenni Epperson and Mikaela Lagdameo-Martinez, both multiple intelligence advocates, were recognized that afternoon, along with multi-achievers Sofia Pablo, who excels in academics, dance and sports; Cedric Rafael Uson, whose potential for leadership and the arts is notable; Sean Clarence Cai, who excels in numbers and interpersonal skills; Luis Raphael Danao, who is passionate at academics and sports; and Ciara Russegger, who equally excels in both disciplines.
