HOORAY it’s officially summer! And now, it’s time to introduce our Summer Competitions 2019.
Over at Teacher Tapp towers, we’re always thinking of ways to thank you for your dedication to the app and your hard work as teachers.
Last summer we ran a raffle during the summer holiday to win the ‘Teacher Tapp CPD canon’ for one lucky teacher’s school.
This year, we’re going bigger and better. We’re running the raffle again (woo!) but we are also running summer competitions on each of our social media platforms: Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
We’re branching out to social media because we want to encourage more teachers (like you amazing lot) to join Teacher Tapp and have their voice heard!
How do the Teacher Tapp Summer Competitions work?*
1. The Teacher Tapp CPD Canon Raffle
Just like last year, we’re running our (now) annual raffle.
Only 1 in 3 schools has a CPD library, which we think is crazy. And we want to change it. We value CPD because we recognise how crucial it is for teachers to continue to learn in order to improve their teaching. Our CPD canon (worth over £300 may we add) consists of books we think EVERY teacher should have access to, and we’re going to send the whole lot of them to one lucky school!
How does it work? Every question you answer on Teacher Tapp in August works is a raffle ticket. If you answer every set of the daily three questions you will have 93 tickets in the final draw.
So the more questions you answer the better chance you have of getting your hands on those books! Get tapping!
2. ReTweet The Tweet!
We’re running a competition to encourage you to share our get-the-app link. Why? Because we are on a mission to get more people on the app and learning new things every day. We are able to find out many more things when our numbers get higher. For example, does morale affect people leaving? How is the new Ofsted framework affecting book scrutiny? Why do English teachers like chisel tip markers?!
How does it work? Re-tweet any of our Get The App competition tweets and follow @TeacherTapp on Twitter. That’s it!
What will you win in the summer competitions? At the end of the summer we will run a random draw from all the users who retweeted us. The winner will receive a prize bundle of over £100 – including a £50 John Catt Voucher, a Hue HD Visualiser, and cinema tickets. (Because we know from asking that these are the items you most want!)
3. ‘Teacher Tapp Time’ on Facebook
As part of our curiosity towards all things teachery, we’re interested to see what you do in your time off! Every summer we know there are teachers across the world doing crazy things at 3.30pm and still answering their questions. But WHERE ARE YOU?
How does it work?
We’re challenging you to post a photo on Facebook of what you’re up to at 3:30pm (‘Teacher Tapp Time’) at any point during the summer holidays. Maybe it’s a selfie, a view, an activity you’re doing – whatever you like! Go crazy and show us how and where you are answering. (Jacuzzi maybe?)
To qualify for this prize ‘LIKE’ our ‘Teacher Tapp’ page on Facebook, then post your photo in the comments on our page and include #teachertapptime in your post.

4. ‘Teacher Tapp Time’ on Instagram
On Instagram… It’s the same as Facebook, we’re being nosy and we want to see what you are doing at Teacher Tapp Time!
How does it work? Where are you at 3.30pm – ‘Teacher Tapp Time’? Are you on the top of a mountain? Answering from the bath? Riding a camel? Or simply finishing a trip around Tesco? Whatever you are up to, follow @teachertapp on Instagram and upload an image of what you’re up to at 3:30pm. Tag @teachertapp in your post and don’t forget to include #teachertapptime. (Otherwise we won’t be notified of your post entry).
We will be particularly chuffed if it’s a picture or video of you doing your Teacher Tapp!
