Trends and insights on multiple intelligences in Islamic schools: A bibliometric analysis

Keywords: multiple intelligences; islamic schools; bibliometric analysis; network visualization; research trend


This research aims to explore the potential of multiple intelligences in Islamic schools through bibliometric analysis. The concept of multiple intelligences was developed by Howard Gardner and includes emotional, kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical, naturalistic, and spatial intelligences in addition to intellectual or logical intelligence. However, education in Islamic schools often only emphasizes academic and spiritual intelligence. Therefore, it is important to explore and analyze information about the application of multiple intelligences in Islamic schools. Bibliometric analysis methods are used to identify trends, patterns, and relationships between publications relevant to the topic of multiple intelligences in Islamic schools. The data source used is the Scopus scientific database. The results show that the concept of multiple intelligences has become a popular topic in educational research in recent decades, but there are not many studies that systematically explore the potential of multiple intelligences in Islamic schools through bibliometric analysis. Network visualization of author and country collaborations shows who frequently collaborates in research and which countries are involved. Keyword network visualization is used to identify the main topics and trends in the research field. Visualization shows that the study of multiple intelligences has shifted from creativity, learning, and assessment towards broader concepts such as inclusive education, Islamic schools, and Islamic education. Qualitative analysis shows that teachers can apply teaching strategies that load multiple intelligences through linguistic and interpersonal intelligence stimulation. They can also develop teaching materials based on multiple intelligences for students that accommodate multiple intelligences.
