How I Use It
The majority of my reminders go to my Team (a group of students I often have to get forms and signatures from). We only meet with our team twice a week, and it is often difficult to catch the students in the hall to remind them of anything. This is where Remind 101 comes in handy. I just set a reminder to be sent to my students at a certain time and day as soon as I realize they will need to return something to me. The students love it, and I get all of the paperwork back.
I have also used Remind 101 with all of my students during snow days. I am able to text my students to inform them of an online assignment. It is a great and safe way to communicate.
I love being able to communicate with my students the way they communicate. All of my students text, so having the ability to send a text is great.
