Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences has revolutionised thinking in education, opening up learning to students who, in the past, would have been ‘labeled’ as stupid, strange or ‘thick’. We now understand that these student are as intelligent (if not more so) that the rest. Thanks to Gardner’s theory we understand that these students learn by different intelligences and that it is the teachers responsibility to ensure that the student learns in a way which makes sense to them, allowing them to achieve their goals and reach their potential.
