Great App Idea
The remind app seems like such great idea. This app opens the lines of communication between teachers and parents. Parents can be held accountable for knowing what is coming up such as due dates, quizzes and tests. Parents can also get involved in the academic experience of their children. Now that technology is literally in the hands of almost every student in some areas, sending reminders to each individual ensures that your reminder will not be unseen. This app is also a very safe way to communicate with students. A code is utilized which prevents individuals from sharing actual phone numbers. Also, conversations are saved which eliminates inappropriate usage of messaging! All in all, this app is incredibly innovative and useful in any classroom setting!
