Howard Gardner - Future Minds

Description

In this lecture series, filmed at the RSA in London, Harvard professor Howard Gardener examines the mental capacities needed for the future in a globalised world.

The kinds of minds he suggests should be cultivated are three cognitive ones: the disciplined mind, the synthesizing mind and the creating mind, and two that deal with the human sphere: the respectful mind and the ethical mind. Gardener discusses how these can be best nurtured, and points out some of the inevitable tensions created between them.

After the lecture a group of teachers discuss how these ideas are used in practice in the classroom today.
