Description

Ever since we first produced our wheel of iPad Apps for Learners with Dyslexia / Reading and Writing Difficulties, we've had regular requests for a similar wheel for tablets and smartphones that use the Android operating system. IPads are used much more frequently than Android devices in schools, but over the past few years more schools have started to allow the use of Android tablets and many parents have been buying them for home use. More educational apps are now available for Android tablets and smartphones.

This is the first version of our Android Apps for Learners with Dyslexia / Reading and Writing Difficulties. It attempts to categorise a number of apps that may be useful for people with reading and writing difficulties, such as:

  • text readers;
  • tools to support writing;
  • ebook readers;
  • mindmapping apps;
  • and many more.

This is by no means a comprehensive or definitive list of apps, just a starting point.

We are happy to take on board suggestions for future editions of the wheel. Email your suggestions to call.scotland@ed.ac.uk
