What is eduDroid?

eduDroid is an educational application for use on android devices. It can help engage children in education and learning by providing games, quizzes and tools to increase their understanding and knowledge of educational modules.

The modules are focussed towards children in KS1 & KS2 education, children with SEND and also some secondary school children.

The modules include: word searches, handwriting skills, phonics, spelling, reading, eBooks, quizzes, triangle maths, number bonds, precision teaching, sound recording, money counting, hundreds tens and units, playing cards, clock, flash cards and more... all in one application!

Here is a quick video that illustrates some of the modules that we have.

How is eduDroid used in schools?

Setting up a network of android devices in schools is cost-effective and simple to maintain. eduDroid has been designed to run on all android tablets and phones, of any shape and size, and will integrate easily with exisiting networks. Schools and teachers of any IT abilities can also follow our step-by-step installation instructions. ¬†Updating the devices is also made quicker by updating software direct from your school server, to avoid time-consuming single device upgrades.

How can I get eduDroid?

Children can explore eduDroid on their own or by using it as a teaching tool with an adult or teacher. It can be used at home and at school.

For use at home you need to download the application from the Google Play Store or Amazon Apps Store onto your android device.

Why is eduDroid only available on Android devices?

Android is an open-source operating system which means they are cheap and simple-to-use devices available for both home and school use.

The first set of 70 tablets for our school cost just £52.50 each and run all the applications we require with no problems. We recently purchased a further 12 costing just £48.25 each. With eduDroid installed these are used for a wide range of lessons.

An added benefit of using android is the access to Adobe Flash, which accounts for 80% of web based educational games available at the moment.

How is eduDroid different?

There are lots of great education apps available that are called "stand alone" applications. These may only cover one or two topics. By contrast, eduDroid is designed as a modular system so all of the content is connected and covers a vast array of different topics.

Working in a school, I know that teachers' time is precious. They work hard and need an easy way to create learning content quickly. eduDroid provides them with the tools to achieve this, while also engaging children with modern technology.
