Multiple Intelligences Receives Attention in France

In the latter half of 2014, two periodicals in France have published articles devoted to multiple intelligences , bringing an exciting level of attention to the theory among French-speaking readers.

First, L’Express devoted it’s August 2014 cover story to multiple intelligences, which included a significant series of articles on the nature of intelligence and learning through the lens of MI. An MI test to help readers conceptualize their intelligences, as well as a personal spotlight of a man with varying interests and abilities across several intelligences, were included. A PDF is available here.

Second, the magazine Bio Info ran a story in their Family/Education section about developing the eight intelligences of MI among children, with a breakdown of each component and an explanation of how incorporation of an MI perspective may help to increase educational capacity. See a PDF of the story here.
