UPDATE: The sweepstakes is now closed. We were able to collect some amazing tips, and you can find our favorites in this presentation: 32 Strategies for Building a Thriving Learning Environment. A big thank you goes out to everyone who participated!
Edutopia is celebrating Back to School with a campaign of free teacher resources to help make this your #BestYearEver!
But we also know that the educators and parents in our community are superstars with your own helpful tips to share.
We want to hear from you! Share your tips for starting the year strong, and you could win a Nexus 7 tablet (a $269 value)! We'll also feature the most popular tips in a free, downloadable resource.
Here's how it works:
- Post your tip in the comments below. Tips should aim to help teachers and parents to start the school year strong.
- Posting a tip will enter you for a chance to win a Nexus 7 tablet. Make sure it's a real tip though. Any funny business and we'll disqualify the entry. :-)
- Sorry, there's only one entry allowed per person, but you can add as many tips as you like!
- On August 27, we'll close the sweepstakes and choose the Nexus 7 winner.
- The most liked tips (comments with the most thumbs ups) will be promoted on Edutopia and your tip credited to you. Yep...you'll be #edufamous!
What does a good tip look like? Here's an example: Create a QR code with a link to your contact information and post it on your class' door. That way, parents can scan it at their convenience. Great for back-to-school night.
Here's the obligatory rules blurb:
Make sure you enter your tips before the deadline (midnight PDT on August 27, 2014). Please note that there's only one entry per person (you can comment more than once but only one entry will be counted), and the sweepstakes is only open to qualified entrants from the United States and Canada excluding Quebec, ages 18 or older. Void where prohibited. Read the complete rules and regulations.
We can't wait to read your submissions. Let's all make this our #BestYearEver!
