What makes the iPad brilliant is that it caters to all different intelligences. In fact most apps touch upon all different types of intelligences. I've tried to match all of my favorite educational apps with their corresponding intelligences.
This post will provide links to iPad apps that are looked at using Gardner's Multiple Intelligences. It is important to remember that many apps may link to a variety of the intelligences. She also quotes Daniel Willingham "Children do differ in their abilities with different modalities, but teaching the child in his best modaility doesn't affect his educational achievement. What does matter is whether the child is taught in the content's best modality."
Each multiple intelligence is represented in the full image. Click on the app icon to see in the App Store.
