I was very privileged that Professor Howard Gardner autographed my mind map of his keynote speech given on the 14th International Conference on Thinking was held in Kuala Lumpur on 22 June 2009 where he added yet another Intelligence, Interdisciplinary, to the list of nine, NOT eight intelligences (Linguistic, Mathematical, Spatial, Musical, Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Naturalist and Existential) that he originated many years ago. He also spoke about his latest and more interesting passion of his life, the Good Work Project. More details of this project could be found in this website: http://www.thegoodproject.org/ - It is about his passion to launch a large-scale effort to increase the incidence of good work in our society. Read more about it in the internet.
I first met Professor Gardner when he presented his keynote speech on Multiple Intelligences in 1997 at the 7th ICOT in Suntec City, Singapore. The Conference was opened by Mr Goh Chok Tong, the then Prime Minister, who announced Singapore's vision of "Thinking Schools, Learning Nation". This theme, has since, been the Vision of the Ministry of Education (MOE), Singapore.
I was happy to have met him again in Kuala Lumpur where I presented a paper on “Enhancing Learning & Thinking Through Mind Mapping®, Technology & a Learner-centred Learning Approach”
I will be posting many more mind maps of the various 14th ICOT keynote speakers included Edward de Bono, Howard Gardner, Tony Buzan and Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad. Stay tune.
Thank you for your patience and interest in my mind maps.
