Life turns it into a mind. Its content grew in a haphazard manner over the years. When I encountered a brain science article or topic that seemed particularly relevant to my interests in education, I added it to the IAE-pedia Brain Science page.
Here we explore the theory of multiple intelligences; why it has found a ready audience amongst educationalists; and some of the issues around its conceptualization and realization. I want them to understand it so that they will be positioned to make it a better place.
Knowledge is not the same as morality, but we need to understand if we are to avoid past mistakes and move in productive directions.
An important part of that understanding is knowing who we are and what we can do… Ultimately, we must synthesize our understandings for ourselves.
The performance of understanding that try matters are the ones we carry out as human beings in an imperfect world which we can affect for good or for ill.
The theory of multiple intelligences: In the heyday of the psychometric and behaviorist eras, it was generally believed that intelligence was a single entity that was inherited; and that human beings — initially a blank slate — could be trained to learn anything, provided that it was presented in an appropriate way.
Howard Gardner has questioned the idea that intelligence is a single entity, that it results from a single factor, and that it can be measured simply via IQ tests. He has also challenged the cognitive development work of Piaget.
The opportunities for risky physical activity were limited, and creative and intellectual pursuits encouraged. Instead he went to a nearby preparatory school in Kingston, Pennsylvania Wyoming Seminary.
Howard Gardner appears to have embraced the opportunities there — and to have elicited the support and interest of some very able teachers. From there he went to Harvard University to study history in readiness for a career in the law.
However, he was lucky enough to have Eric Erikson as a tutor. But there were others: My mind was really opened when I went to Harvard College and had the opportunity to study under individuals—such as psychoanalyst Erik Erikson, sociologist David Riesman, and cognitive psychologist Jerome Bruner—who were creating knowledge about human beings.
That helped set me on the course of investigating human nature, particularly how human beings think. Howard Gardner completed his PhD in his dissertation was on style sensitivity in children. He remained at Harvard. Alongside his work with Project Zero he now co-directs it with David Perkins he was a lecturer and then professor in education His first major book, The Shattered Mind appeared in and some fifteen have followed.
Project Zero provided an environment in which Howard Gardner could begin to explore his interest in human cognition.Intellectual giftedness is an intellectual ability significantly higher than average.
