How I Use It
I require my special needs students to sign up for Remind101, either through text messaging or email. Also, I send home pamphlets (that are provided by Remind101) with instructions for parents to sign up. This is a great tool for students to be reminded about upcoming tests or events. I also send daily homework reminders so parents know what their child will need to complete before the next day of school.
I can contact either a whole class or individual students/parents. The best part is that I don't have to give out my own personal cell phone number, yet I can still contact each person individually. Most of my special needs students have organizational or memory issues and through this app I am able to give that much-needed extra support to each of them.
