Weekly Prizes for Best TinyTap Apps – All August Long!

AugustApps bannerWith the 2014-2015 school year around the corner, teachers everywhere are searching for dynamic new ways to present their lessons and engage their students. While the material might not change dramatically from year to year (2 plus 2 still equals 4), students’ attention spans and standards surely do.


Fortunately, you don’t need to be a techie in order to digitize your lessons. And you don’t need a big budget in order to afford the program to do so. In fact, for the month of August, you could even earn a prize by digitizing your lesson!


TinyTap is excited to introduce the #AugustApps competition: each week of August, TinyTap will award an iPad mini to the best educational app created.


Teachers, now is the time to refresh your lessons and enter the chance to win a prize!



Apps eligible for consideration must teach language, math, science, art, music, or geography lessons (preference given to Common Core aligned lessons) intended for a K-6 audience and be shared publicly on TinyTap’s market. Participating apps must write #AugustApps in the app description


Judges’ Tips

1. Create a cover page with an image and recording to introduce your app (e.g. “Welcome to Ms. Molly’s Math Class – let’s learn about fractions!”)

2. Use original images or graphics from TinyTap’s many creation packs

3. Make sure your audio recording is clear, with no background noise

4. Complete your TinyTap user profile with your name, a picture, and links to your blog or school, etc. … so that if you win, you can channel your new-found publicity accordingly

5. Follow TinyTap for updates and inspiration (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram … you name it!)
