Designing Sides to Match Multiple Intelligences

According to an article titled MI & Technology: A Winning Combination! typically 30 percent of students prefer learning visually, 34 percent auditorily, and 36 percent kinesthetically. Follow the formula when creating slides to accompany your class.

For instance, if you plan to have 40 slides, approximately 30 percent of the slides (12) should contain graphics, 34 percent (13 slides) should have some type of sound element, and 36 percent (15 slides) should have some type of interactive content (e.g., animations, quizzes, and exercises).
