Intelligence in the Making – Howard Gardner


I love Gardner's definition of intelligence.   This is a notion that intelligence finds its expression ways of doing or making that can be evaluated in different cultural contexts.   An art object can seen as artistic expression and a technical achievement, for instance.  

Kim Sheridan, an assistant professor at George Mason Univ. shared this slide with me.  She said it was from Gardner's "Frames of Mind."   Gardner was Kim's Ph.D. adviser.   I met Kim during a workshop on interest-drive arts education organized by Kylie Pepper of Indiana University at the Wallace Foundation in NYC.
