Using this model mindfully, educators can apply the principles of Gardner’s multiple intelligences theory in planning and implementing learning experiences that:
- Address the emerging demands of the knowledge economy workplace.
- Support learners in developing the skills, values and attitudes that will make them college, career and citizenship ready.
- Provide the conditions for the necessary instructional shift that will transform public education to meet the needs of society today and in the future.
While Howard Gardner created his intelligence theory at the dusk of the industrial age, his greatest impact may well be its application in the dawn of the information age.
