After six years of providing digital publishing tools for students to write and illustrate their own print and digital books, we will be closing TikaTok on December 31, 2020. Unfortunately, the Story Editor within TikaTok, used to create and edit books, is driven by Adobe Flash. Pearson recognizes that Adobe will stop supporting and updating Flash on December 30, 2020. At that time browsers such as Chrome will discontinue support for Flash-based content. As a result, we will be retiring TikaTok on the same day.
For your added convenience, we are making all saved student story PDFs free for those who wish to download them without a watermark before the site retires. To do this simply add your digital book to the shopping cart under the ‘Publish this Book’ option and enter the coupon code ‘FREEPDF’ to redeem at checkout. All accounts and custom books will be deleted from the TikaTok site on January 1, 2021.
For customers whose purchase of myWorld Social Studies or ReadyGEN included a subscription to TikaTok, a future announcement will be posted to Realize. The team is at work exploring a replacement solution that will be announced soon on Realize.
