This study examines the integration of ICT and Multiple Intelligences theories within Project-Based Learning frameworks to address these challenges and improve English proficiency among Chinese undergraduates.

The primary research objective was to investigate the effects of integrating ICT and MI in PBL on English language achievement. The study focused on how these integrations influence student engagement, learning outcomes, and teaching methods, particularly catering to the diverse needs of Chinese university students. To achieve this, the research deployed a quasi-experimental design involving 60 undergraduates, divided into a treatment group and a control group. The treatment group experienced a 16-week online PBL intervention, tailored to their MI profiles, while the control group received regular classroom instruction.

Contrary to initial hypotheses, the study found significant improvements in English language proficiency, motivation, and engagement in the treatment group. Quantitative data, collected through pre-post test observations and questionnaires, indicated that the integration of ICT and MI within PBL significantly moderated the effectiveness of PBL in enhancing English language achievement. This outcome highlights the substantial impact of ICT integration when effectively combined with MI in PBL, demonstrating a notable enhancement in language learning outcomes contrary to earlier beliefs.

This study contributes to the existing literature by providing empirical evidence on the effectiveness of technology-enhanced, personalized PBL approaches in English language education. With the increasing prevalence of online education, these findings offer insights into pedagogical innovations that foster engagement, critical thinking, and language skills, responding to the diverse and evolving needs of students in the digital era.
