Top 12 Education Technology Blogs The top twelve education technology blogs are packed full of thoughts from educators, health professionals, and technology experts dedicated to sharing information.

Adobe Edge Animate proves HTML5 is no substitute for Flash For more than 15 years, professionals wishing to push the web envelope beyond the capabilities of HTML turned to Adobe Flash (or, more recently, Silverlight). Now, though, the future of web browsing is moving to mobile browsers that no longer support these plugins, so what’s the modern alternative? Without a plugin, the only way to do it is in the browser. Both Adobe and the web design community must follow Steve Jobs’ advice from 2010, when he announced Flash wouldn’t be allowed onto iOS: use open browser standards instead. As Jobs put it then, "HTML5, the new web standard... lets web developers create advanced graphics, typography, animations and transitions without relying on third-party browser plugins (like Flash)... Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future, and less on criticising Apple for leaving the past behind."

Fred Rogers Center - Purpose The Fred Rogers Archive preserves and organizes in a single location all the materials related to Fred Rogers personally and to the public person that became the iconic Mister Rogers. Archival materials are an essential resource for the work of the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media, but they are also intended to be a source for other scholarly and applied research into children’s television, early childhood development, and Fred Rogers’ unique role in bridging both fields. Fred’s creativity and imagination were expressed in music and stories. Before he became known as the host of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, he enjoyed composing songs and writing stories, often combining these into “operas.”

Photoshop Tutorial: Creating a Comic style image We’ve been busy with our email marketing chores here at Wired HQ, so it has been a while since I last did a Photoshop tutorial. The powers above have set aside some time for me to write another, so I trawled the internet for inspiration.

Technology in Early Childhood: Advice For Parents and Teachers From A Trusted Source 3.28.12 | It seems like everyone has weighed in on the how-young-is-too-young debate around children and technology.

They spend their days interacting with and observing little kids through a developmental lens.
