At present, the notion of schools devoted to multiple intelligences is still in its infancy, and there are as many plausible recipes as there are educational chefs. I hope that in the next twenty years, a number of efforts will be made to craft an education that takes multiple intelligences seriously; should this be done, we will be in a position to know which of these "thought" and "action experiments" make sense and which prove to be impractical or ill-advised.
In addition to the areas covered in previous chapters, there are many other applications of MI theory to education. Three that deserve mention before ending this book include computer technology, cultural diversity, and career counseling. In each case, MI theory provides a context through which existing understandings and resources can be extended to include a broader perspective. This wider view, in turn, can allow educators to develop educational materials and strategies that meet the needs of a more diverse student population.
