Howard Gardner is well known in the educational world for his theories on Multiple Intelligence. It was very fortunate that I could attend his workshop on 'Five Minds of the Future' This professional development opportunity gave me the opportunity to understand the changing needs of education and a new perspective in preparing the young and myself.
Reading the book, Five Minds of the Future, was not as interesting as hearing it from Howard Gardner itself. The Five Minds: The Disciplined Mind, The Synthesizing Mind, The Creating Mind, The Respectful Mind and The Ethical mind are the kinds of minds, suggests Howard Gardner based on his decades of research as a psychologist, that we need to develop to survive in the changing world.
More on this can be read either from his book or from Howard Gardener's website. http://www.howardgardner.com/
