Howard Gardner of the Harvard Graduate School of Education has suggested educators look at learners in a new way. He wants them to consider "Multiple Intelligences". Gardner says that the old ideas of intelligence are unfair to many people because the traditional theories cover only a narrow range of human aptitudes and focus on reading, writing, math, and science. Gardners suggests that education should also respect and work to develop musical intelligence, bodily intelligence, and spatial intelligence, as well as students' abilities to understand themselves and to understand others.
