Some applications can be used on both Apple and Android products, while others are item specific.

So, here are 10 of our favorite Android apps for education. Did your favorite applications make the list? If not, share them in the comments section of this story.

I have been unable to find any other phone that compares to the number of applications for education as the Android OS. With App Inventor and the resources out there, it is possible for anyone who is interested to make an application. One of my robotics students yesterday completed his first app and those are skills that will last him a lifetime. So apps for ed are great but so are learning to make apps.

I keep a growing list of free Android apps on my blog. As a teacher, I use these in my class or in my life and I have found that many others do as well. If you have any to add, please let me know.

Evernote is a great app. You can share your notes with your classes. My coworker uses it to post agendas and homework for his kids to check so they always know what is happening in the next class.

Thanks for including Grade Book for Professors on your list! In addition to the paid version, we have a full version of the app that is free.

I suppose I should also note that we have an attendance app and two grading tool apps – all free.

Calculus Tools is an incredible app. As the name implies, it is for calculus teachers/students. I haven’t used EVERYTHING it does, but a sample: arc length, surfaces of revolution, integrals, derivatives, as well a table of integrals for reference. FREE.
