How I Use It
I have set up individual classes in Remind. With this tool, I send reminders about homework, suggested sites to visit, reminders about performances, parent meetings; anything that I want students to be "reminded" about can be sent via text and/or e-mail. (They can sign up to get messages either or both ways) It is also helpful to parents who want to be in the loop about coming events/homework/etc. Messages can be sent right away, scheduled for later and repeated.
Overall - it's great! information to the students/parents is quick and easy. It now also offers the ability to attach documents, etc., to messages.
