iLearn Technology-enter to win 1 year membership to StarrMatica!

Need some exciting news to start your March off right?  You all are so lucky, this is the place! StarrMatica is giving away a one year classroom membership (that is a $300 value!!) that will give you access to all 3,800 of reading, math, music, art, and science resources to a lucky iLearn Technology reader!  This stuff is GOOD, I should know because I helped out with the music, art, and science resources.  The subscription gives you access to teacher-written flash activities, animations, games and manipulatives as well as a database of over 3,200+ hand selected (some by yours truly) ad-free links.  Aren’t you feeling springy and smiley just reading about it?  Yeah, me too. StarrMatica is a Prometheus award winning educational publishing company founded, owned and operated by one of iLearn Technology’s first Edublogger Alliance members, Emily Starr! So, now that I have your attention you are probably wondering how to enter for your chance to win.  There are 3 ways to enter,  enter using all 3 methods and get 3 entries (just because I am feeling EXTRA generous on this sunshiny Colorado day!) 1. Subscribe to iLearn Technology via RSS or email. (If you are already subscribed, you can send me a Tweet with the hashtag #luvilearntech) 2. “Like” iLearn Technology on Facebook (Or if you have already “liked” it, you can leave me a message about how much you would like to win on the iLearn Tech FB page). 3. Fill out this Teacher Assessment/Creativity survey (would love for EVERYONE to do this one!!) Easy peasy right?  Right. So get your buns moving and work on one or three of those entry methods! Thank you to StarrMatica for letting us take part in a fun contest with such an outstanding prize!
