How I Use It
This website is a great tool to help me communicate with my students. I use this website to send my students notices on homework or project due date reminders, to remind them about an upcoming test, or to send a critical thinking or journal prompt for students to answer before they come to class. The website creates a cell phone number for you that is not your actual number to keep your safety. It was a little difficult to get my students and parents signed up but if you prepare ahead of time it is easy to work with them. Back to school night is a great opportunity to get them all signed up. I sent home the letter two days before back to school night and many signed up and then worked with those that did not at back to school night.
My Take
As a teaching tool it could be used to give impromptu to writing prompts, or a website article, and now you can attach a file so learning can happen. I like the new attachment tool for files as I can send home letters to parents or the assignment sheet. I can send an exit or what I like to call an entrance ticket that students have to have done before they come to class.
