Howard Gardner
The Theory of Multiple Intelligences: Implications for Teaching

In 1983, Howard Gardner proposed the theory of multiple intelligences. In contrast to the standard view of intelligence as a single, measurable, entity, Gardner contends that human beings possess a number of relatively autonomous cognitive abilities called the multiple intelligences. In his presentation, Gardner will review the background and major claims of the theory; its educational implications; the way that the theory has evolved  over a quarter-century; and his thoughts about further changes in, and current and future applications of, the theory for which he is best known.
