3Multiple Intelligence Theorist The theory of multiple intelligences was developed in 1983 by Howard Gardner, Professor of Education at Harvard University.
4Multiple Intelligence Theorist Howard Gardner suggested that the traditional notion of intelligence, based on IQ testing, is too limited. In the past we have concentrated on word and mathematical intelligence as being the most significant.Gardner argued that we should also value other kinds of intelligence, and he proposed 8 intelligences. (Discussion re ‘existentialist’ and ‘spiritualist’ intelligences has also occurred)
