The purpose of this study is to propose education model using Eclipse ADT with android SDK and App Inventor together for efficient teaching for developing Android application. Android is an operating system for mobile devices, one of the most used in the world today. Android is now used in more devices, including smart phones and more users than any other mobile operating system. Android SDK is required to Android app developer, but students are difficult for Android SDK because Android SDK requires students the prior knowledge of Java programming language and Android SDK class library. MIT App Inventor is a web based tool, which allows users with no programming experience to develop mobile apps. The Android programming education model designed in this study was applied to a course for mobile apps. This model using multi Android development tools have shown to be more efficient compared to education using Android SDK only.
