Yesterday, I published a list of eleven apps for teachers and school administrators to try on their new Android devices. If one of your children or students received a new Android device during this holiday season here are eleven apps that you and they should check out. 1.Â Math Workout is a free Android app for practicing your basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division skills.
I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite apps from 2011. I wrote a TextMate command to link all of these 1 (60+ links in four minutes!), so if you spot any misfire links that I missed, let me know in the comments. This isn’t an all-inclusive list (despite its length), but it’s a good chance to highlight some gems that may have passed under the radar of the big sites. No fancy awards here, just a grateful mention of apps that make my life better.

There are a number of apps that are available that let you record your voice in order to convert it to text. I find this helpful when I need to transcribe longer pieces or even if I need to transcribe multiple entries. This technology is not yet perfect but it has improved considerably since these apps first came on the market. The first time I tried these app I got about 30% of the words correct, that figure is now more like 85% and with some effort on your part can be as high as 95%. Even with the minor inconsistencies it is still a quicker way for me to do larger pieces of text.
Most of what we do is for the students. The focus of this and many other blogs and websites is about learning, and rightly so, but there are also apps that will make our jobs easier too. I am talking about that catergory of apps that are designed specifically for the classroom teacher.
Twitter App (free) Twitter is one of the most active and beneficial social networks on the web. All educators would be wise to join the conversation. If you haven’t used Twitter yet, I would recommend that you read these excellent blog posts: http://primarytech.global2.vic.edu.au/2011/04/04/top-10-twitter-tips/ Google Voice (free)
