How I Use It
I've used this to remind parents of meetings, events, tests, etc. As a classroom teacher this was great for sharing trip info, test reminders, project deadlines and changes in events, or schedules. As one of the technology teachers, I'm using to share info with teachers too! I send out "reminders" about new subscriptions we have, tools that are working for others, such as Remind, and new finds that I am eager to share with colleagues.
My Take
Great secure tool for communicating with parents and students! I send out tech tips, event reminders & other important information! I like that parents must include a name when registering, so I know who is signed up, and I like that parents can't "reply all" like in a text message. I would however like to be able to add parents myself. For example, with a parents consent and number, add them to my distribution list through the website.
