8way thinking 8way thinking In 2006 Ian Gilbert devised a thinking skills project called 8way thinking. He drew on Multiple Intelligence Theory (Gardner 1993, 1999, 2004) and the Philosophy for Children approach to produce a ‘multidimensional polycognitive enquiry tool’ (Gilbert 2006 p. 17) In this work it gave students a framework for their questions, helping them to approach strangers.
