Android Apps for the Classroom

Two weeks ago I asked readers to share their favorite iPad apps for the classroom, and the comments thread now features several good suggestions. However, here at ProfHacker we’re not interested solely in the iPad as a teaching and learning tool; we’ve also written about Android devices. See, for example, Amy post on “Android for Academics,” Natalie’s “From the Archives: All About Android,” and Ryan’s 3-part series on switching from iOS to Android.

As Amy points out, the Android for Academics site features 5 free apps available for download: Grade Book, Attendance, Grade Ticker, Grade Rubric, and Grade Chart. That’s not a bad start, but there are certainly more applications out there. (In fact, many of the apps mentioned in the comments to last week’s post about the iPad are also available for Android.)

So let’s hear from our readers who are faithful users of Android devices.

Which Android apps have you found most useful in the classroom? Please let us know in the comments, and explain how you use those apps for pedagogical purposes.
