Thanks Tom for sharing this video clip of Dr. Gardner.  His foundational work in identifying multiple intelligences has been a fundamental design characteristics we at TCI strive for in our programs. 

It's refreshing to see his vigor and intellect being directed at ethical ed in this age of technology.  Young people are more connected today than ever before.  As he points out in this clip, no media is benign or bad, but it could be either.  It's all the more charge to educators today to keep up, think of technology as a medium, and guide students towards the fruitful use of it.
