He belives that students have 8 basic intelligences, including linguistic, logical/mathematical, spatial, interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical, bodily-kinesthetic and naturalistic.

"Kids go to school and college and get through, but they don't seem to really care about using their minds. School doesn't have the kind of long term positive impact that it should."

"Anything that is worth teaching can be presented in many different ways. These multiple ways can make use of our multiple intelligences."

ExtraMany people believe that learning styles and multiple intelligences are the same thing, but they are not. Howard Gardner says that learning styles are the way in which we approach a range of tasks, while multiple intelligences represent different intellectual abilities. specifically among students.

ExtraGardner believes that educators should not follow one specific theory when designing instruction but instead focus on personal goals and values that are appropriate to their teaching and student needs.
