I should really call this page 'Education Weblinks' but that would spoil the symmetry of the website Menu!


Visit my (separate site) ict4schools.ie/websites ...On this page, you will find our list of 150 Education Sites.


I have tested these for their Flash content, as Flash has been a major tool in the delivery of educational media in the past.

On November 9, 2011, Adobe announced that it will no longer develop Flash for Mobile Platforms and is planning on developing new products with more open technologies and standards like HTML5.


My ict4schools.ie/websites page indicates that there is some (but definitely not rapid) movement toward html5 as an alternative to Flash. However, Flash is still used on c. 50% of 'education websites'

With the advent of Android 4.4 (and the movement away from Flash) I have tested a number of Browsers for 'Flash Compatibility' ...read the separate document Flash Browsers


For Tablets running Android 4.2 or earlier, it was possible to work around the non-availability of Flash: In the event that your particular Android Tablet does not come with Adobe Flash Player ...and Flash Player for Android is no longer available for download from the Google Play app store ...Android users can still download and install Flash Player from the Archived Flash Player Versions page on the Adobe website. To do so, please visit the Adobe Forum where there are instructions and a video from Adobe.

I would add the advice that, when installed, you may want to uncheck the “Unknown sources” option once again to keep your phone or tablet secure.

I have tested this solution - with success - on our Android 4.1 Jelly Bean tablet :-)
