  2. Equipping front-line teachers with the skills for handling MI students (different types of learners);
  3. Encouraging teaching staff to adopt alternative pedagogical plans;
  4. Creating space for collaborative pedagogy and curriculum integration;
  5. Motivating the S2 students to strive for better academic performance and participate in MI activities;
  6. Optimizing resources to provide a better learning and development environment for MI students; and
  7. Acting as an initial training ground for student leaders in S4.

Changes in the world’s conception of ‘intelligence’:

Traditional Conception
New Conception
Intelligence is fixed and unchangeable. Intelligence can grow and be developed.
Intelligence can be quantified with a number. Intelligence is not quantifiable, intelligence exists in the processes of problem manifestation and resolution.
Intelligence is a single trait. Intelligence exists in many forms; intelligence consists of multiple independent intellectual faculties.
Intelligence is assessed through decontextualized, and standardized testing. Intelligence assessment should be conducted in a realistic and contextualized environment.
Intelligence is a means to differentiate students, and also a predictor of academic success. Intelligence is a means to understand the capabilities of mankind, and comprises the various areas where students can achieve success.
