Multiple Intelligences, Understanding, Five Minds for the Future
LEARNING & MIND is Howard Gardner’s all
new 3-DVD series for the classroom! Here,
decades of research culminate in his
definitive treatise on the current state of
Multiple Intelligences (MI) theory, what
we know about learning and
"understanding”, and which intellectual
capacities will matter most in a rapidly
changing world.
Gardner takes your students on an epic journey from the cognitive revolution of the 1950's,
to today's revolutions in biology, technology, and globalization.  On this sweeping canvas,
he demonstrates what intelligence is (and isn’t), what “disciplinary understanding” is (and
how to achieve it), and how rapidly changing economic, technological and ethical contexts
will frame the big questions of tomorrow. Each DVD is accompanied by an Instructor’s
Package with material outline, discussion topics, and more!
In this all-new presentation, Howard Gardner brings us
up to date on the current state of MI theory. From
evolutionary psychology and genetics, to anthropology
and the study of special populations, he reveals the 8
intelligences identified by MI theory—and the empirical
criteria used to identify them.

Using a computational model, Gardner illustrates how
we all possess varying combinations of these
“8 computers” and what this means for individuation
and pluralization in educational practice. Gardner then
demonstrates how intelligence is both heritable and
developable – while looking at ways we can nurture
multiple intelligences.  

Here, he illustrates the relationships between
intelligence, sensory systems, and learning styles—and
reveals why there can be no singular MI approach.  

Turning to the assessment question, Gardner now
suggests how to best assess the intelligences and for
what purpose.  Finally, Gardner will ask us to consider
the ethical dimension: “Intelligence for what?”

Gardner argues that a principal goal of knowledge and
skills to new situations or problems.

At the same time, he illustrates how intuitive theories
of the “unschooled mind” make disciplinary
understanding both counter-intuitive and difficult to
develop—from the sciences and math, to the arts and
humanities. Moving toward the goal of key
understandings across the academic, artistic, and even
moral domains, Gardner demonstrates the four
necessary components of educating for understanding.

In turn, he proposes how MI can yield multiple entry

vivid images, he illustrates why only deep immersion,
not the accumulation of facts, will get us to

Looking to the future, Gardner argues that
globalization and the digital revolution will demand
even more challenging interdisciplinary thinking along
with new models of synthesis to cope with
unprecedented amounts of information.

Four megatrends are changing our world and the nature of
learning. Globalization interconnects every aspect of our lives.
The biological revolution in brain science and genomics is teach
and learn.

From Wikipedia and social media to online education, the
technological revolution poses new questions about how much
education should take place in the digital world and on smart
devices. Lifelong learning is both a revolution and an economic
necessity which is outmoding the idea of circumscribed k-12

In the context of these accelerating megatrends, Howard
Gardner reveals “five minds for the future”—the intellectual and
relational capacities that will be required tomorrow.  Then, using
his “triple helix” of good work, he passionately demonstrates
why intelligence and learning can’t be abstracted from big
questions about “what kind of world we want? ” or “what makes
a good person?”

As every area of life is subsumed by market forces, Gardner
highlights the goals, obstacles, and ethical dilemmas which will
confront every profession and domain. Challenging us with the
“figure ground struggle” in education, Gardner asks if our focus
will be on test scores and rankings, or the kinds of individuals
and societies we want to foster.
