How I Use It
I use Remind101 to keep students on track with assignments, reminders for quizzes, tests & due dates, and to communicate if they need to bring certain supplies or meet in a different location. It has really helped the students to be more aware of their classes once they leave school. It's a safe, gentle reminder that they have homework or that they need to remember to bring their textbook, etc.
Since I've started using Remind101 I have had a much higher level of homework and project completion from my students. The averages on quizzes and tests have also gone up because the students are more aware of when and what they need to study because they have that little reminder from their phones. It's also a great way to keep parents in the loop without having to send emails out to staff and students.
