Multiple Intelligence and Learning

According to

Multiple intelligences is educational theory put forth by psychologist Howard Gardner, which suggests that an array of different kinds of "intelligence" exists in human beings. Gardner suggests that each individual manifests varying levels of these different intelligences, and thus each person has a unique "cognitive profile." The theory was first laid out in Gardner's 1983 book, Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences, and has been further refined in subsequent years.
What has it to do with learning?
It implies that no student is not capable of learning things. As a teacher, we must consider the different levels of intellegences of our students because it is in theory of multiple intelligences and our understanding of our students that we can be able to produce certain approaches and situations for them to learn in their context not ours.
