[prMac.com] Tel Aviv, Israel - With the 2014-2015 school year fast approaching, 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 prizes 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. Educators can create learning apps for their classes and share them with kids around the globe in TinyTap's market, plus enter the chance to win an iPad mini. New winners will be announced every week of August!
"With a new academic year around the corner, teachers are refreshing their lesson plans regardless. We're encouraging them to do so with TinyTap, and we're rewarding the best apps created," says CEO and co-founder Yogev Shelly.
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.
TinyTap is a privately held app development company based in Tel Aviv, Israel. Launched in 2012, the company was founded by Yogev Shelly and Oren Elbaz, who focus on developing authoring tools for educational games. TinyTap's vision is to become the go-to source for sharing and creating fun educational kids games on mobile devices. Copyright (C) 2012-2014 TinyTap. All Rights Reserved.
