children-reading-bookAt the end of last year I created a list of technology tools aligned with Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences. Because that list was overwhelmingly overloaded with info, I’m breaking it down by intelligence. I’ve already posted tools for visual/spatial learners and tools for musical learners, and today I’m sharing technology tools for verbal/linguistic learners.

For those of you who are new to multiple intelligences, verbal/linguistic learners have a strong ability to express themselves and to understand how others communicate using language. These learners usually prefer to hear language, write texts, and read content over other mediums. I for one am definitely verbally and linguistically inclined, which is probably why I was an English major in college!

So here are 13 tools to use when designing projects and content for the verbal/linguistic learners in your classroom:
