How I Use It
I have used Remind to send a note for students to check updates on my website. Along with homework reminders, I could send talking points that connected to the texts we were reading and learning challenges to elicit excitement. I also like that I can attach links to documents to send. While I like that it is a one-way reminder, there are times that two-way communication is helpful.
Overall, this is a fun, safe way to increase and maintain engagement with the classroom content and conversation. Sometimes I do wish I had more than 140 characters worth of space!
