2015 Slate Now On Web
And we've got more great Slate news to share!
Adobe Slate has been available on the iPad for about half a year, and hundreds of thousands of great stories have already been told in Slate. Kids (and their teachers), in particular, love Slate, and we've seen wonderful examples of work created by students of all ages.
Slate stories are beautiful and responsive web pages, and they are viewable in any web browser on any device. But authoring? That requires an iPad. Or rather, it did until today, because we just announced a web version of Slate, everything you know and love about authoring in Slate, but now right within your web browser.
Slate for web is functionally identical to Slate for iPad, you get the same user interface, the same text control, the same image options, the same themes, the same sharing options, the same everything, all from within your favorite browser. Oh, and it is designed to work on Chromebooks, too! And on top of that we've added syncing, so that you can author in multiple locations, with browsers and iPads, and your content will always remain in sync.
Enjoy, and please share your creations!
2015 Slate 1.2 Released

2015 Story On Voice And Slate At Liberty Elementary School
Over on the Adobe Voice & Slate Blog you'll find a wonderful story on how Storytelling apps give inner-city Baltimore students a voice. I had a great time meeting with teachers at Liberty Elementary School a few months back, and if you are a K-12 teacher and school administrator, get in touch with me, I'd love the chance to talk to you, too.
2015 Adobe Slate Wins EdTech Award
2015 Adobe Slate Updated
We just updated Adobe Slate. As per the release notes, here's what changed in v1.1.2:
- Did you ever create a gorgeous glideshow, only to find the images were low res when you published? We fixed that!
- JPGs and PNGs have company. Slate now supports import of RAW images.
- iOS9 is out, and we thought it would be good if we didn't crash on it, so we fixed some things.
- Other fixes and tweaks

2015 Back-To-School With Adobe Voice And Slate
It's Back-To-School time, and teachers all over are prepping for another year spent in the company of fresh eager (yeah, I know, but I'm trying to sound upbeat) faces. Back in prehistoric times, when I was in school, that meant sharpening lots of pencils, trying to get last year's chalk mark remnants off the board, obtaining a stack of clean projector transparencies and duplicator carbon sheets ... ouch! Teachers these days do much the same, although we've (thankfully) traded much of that ancient technology for shiny devices like iPads.
Over the past year I've had the good fortune and privilege of meeting lots of passionate teachers the world over, and many have shared the innovative ways that they are using Adobe Voice and Adobe Slate on their classroom iPads. Some of the ideas are so good that I just have to share them.
