Abstract or Description

For almost two decades, Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI) has been in the public arena. Welcomed by educators for its erosion of the concept of a single (and measurable) intelligence, MI theory better addresses the complexity of the human mind. Rather than arguing conclusively for or against the recognition of, for example, design intelligence, the paper discusses some of the issues involved in exploring any perceived relationship between MI theory and Design and Technology.
