How Technology Enhances Howard Gardner's Eight Intelligences Verbal-Linguistic Logical-Mathematical Kinesthetic Visual-Spatial Musical Interpersonal Intrapersonal Naturalist
Verbal-Linguistic Intelligence Software with text-to-speech capabilities Online experts Multimedia presentations and projects Video conferencing Podcasting
Logical-Mathematical Intelligence Software that: Offers immediate feedback Goes beyond drill & practice Develops higher-order thinking skills Develops problem-solving skills (including multistep problems and problems with multiple solutions) Requires students to learn and use computer programming language Online manipulatives Interactive simulations Electronic Puzzles
Visual-Spatial Video Speech Viewer – visual feedback for speech patterns Graphic design Multimedia presentations and projects Virtual reality
Musical Software & Equipment that: Takes a recorded hummed tune and makes it sound like different instruments Allows user to compose for and orchestrate many different instruments Enables students to understand a piece musically, historically, culturally, and politically
Interpersonal Collaborative projects iEARN Wiki’s Blogs Social networking Video conferencing Video taping performances (analyze body movements and facial expressions) Distance learning
Intrapersonal Technology offers the means to pursue a line of thought in great depth as well as to have random access to divergent ideas. Making these choices allows students control over their own learning and intellectual development. Hypermedia Expands the ability to think holistically Makes connections between ideas and images Software Brainstorming/organizing Individual student learning plans Tutoring systems Electronic portfolios
Naturalist Telecommunication technologies help students to: Understand the world beyond their own environment See how their actions can affect the world Online experts Virtual fieldtrips Digital video, cameras, and microscopes
