The Online Project-based Learning Model Based on Student’s Multiple Intelligence
Monchai Tiantong, Sumalee Siksen

Project-based learning (PjBL) has been found to be effective to increase student learning achievement, acquiring knowledge through active learning, gaining interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary knowledge, taking responsibility for the learning, acquiring communication skills and methods of decision-making, and also enhancing student self-esteem, but PjBL can be conducted in a variety of discipline areas, meanwhile Multiple intelligence (MI) is a psychological theory that addresses what the human brain does with information. It defines intelligence as the capacity to solve problems or fashion products that are of value. Understanding what MI are and how they work can help students take advantage of their unique knowledge and skills. This study introduces an online project-based learning model based on student’s Multiple Intelligence, and it presents the synthesized model by using the focus group discussion from ten experts. This model consisted of five modules as: 1) multiple intelligence test module, 2) multiple intelligence classification module, 3) PjBL & KM module, 4) online learning module, and 5) rubric evaluation module. The results of the synthesized model on empirical evaluation by experts showed that they accepted the model at a very good level (Mean = 4.53, S.D. = 0.50). In conclusion, this can be used to synthesize models to complete the project-based online learning successfully.
