What is IQ? How is it determined? What does it measure? Are there more important measurements - maybe a measurement using Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory, or a measurement which looks at how well someone can synthesize information?

If what this study suggests is true, shouldn't the schools be focusing more on cognitive skills, i.e. working memory? It really makes one wonder why there is still so much emphasis on IQ and standardized test scores. If only there was a way to quantify how well a student synthesized information or how they performed in a game or project. Oh wait..... project based learning.
