Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences was first presented in 1983 with the publication of the book Frames of Mind. Over thirty years later, MI still receives a steady stream of publicity due to its impact on education and understandings of human potential.
Several articles released in early 2016 dealing with MI have facilitated continued interest in the theory. These articles are outlined below:
- “The 8 Different Kinds of Intelligence” (Inc.com) about the limits of IQ tests and the components of multiple intelligences;
- “Redefining education” (The Indian Express), concerning the need for broader views of success and wider conceptions of the meaning of intelligence in the Indian education system and overall society;
- “Teachers must let go of the ‘learning styles’ myth” by journalist Esther Cepeda about the difference between learning styles and multiple intelligences; and
- “9 Types of Smart: Nurturing Our Multiple Intelligences” by singer-songwriter Alanis Morrissette, offering her own interpretation of MI.
