Five Minds for the Future With Howard GardnerStreaming Video - 2014
Four megatrends are changing our world and the nature of learning. Globalization interconnects every aspect of our lives. The biological revolution in brain science and genomics is teach and learn. From Wikipedia and social media to online education, the technological revolution poses new questions about how much education should take place in the digital world and on smart devices. Lifelong learning is both a revolution and an economic necessity which is outmoding the idea of circumscribed k-12 schooling. In the context of these accelerating megatrends, Howard Gardner reveals "five minds for the future" the intellectual and relational capacities that will be required tomorrow. Then, using his "triple helix" of good work, he passionately demonstrates why intelligence and learning can't be abstracted from big questions about "what kind of world we want?" or "what makes a good person?" As every area of life is subsumed by market forces, Gardner highlights the goals, obstacles, and ethical dilemmas which will confront every profession and domain. Challenging us with the "figure ground struggle" in education, Gardner asks if our focus will be on test scores and rankings, or the kinds of individuals and societies we want to foster.
