Simple explanations: Flash

Technology can be complicated. Luckily we’re here to help with some plain English explanations. Here are the facts about Flash.

Our resources Mathletics, Spellodrome and Reading Eggs are all Flash-based – a piece of software that enables us to deliver our rich and dynamic content online.

Almost all modern computers, both PC & Mac, will come with a Flash player pre-installed – meaning users will be able to access 3P Learning resources without any problem at all. Occasionally, Adobe – the makers of Flash – release updates to the software to allow for even more features. Mathletics, Spellodrome and Reading Eggs are continually updated so it is very important to ensure that your computer (and your school network) have the most up to date version of Flash.
