How I Use It
I teach online courses at the high school level and the biggest problem all learners have is remembering to sign into the course to complete the work assigned for that week. I'm also using it with middle school students taking an extra online science course and their parents can sign up for alerts too.
Remind101 makes it super easy to send out reminders! The set up is super quick and it's easy to sign in and send messages. Students don't know your cell number and vice versa. There's also an app for it and if students don't have cell phones they can use email. Students grades have gone up simply because they are doing the assignments!
