How I Use It
I use Remind101 for every class. At the beginning of the semester or school year, I have all students take out their phones and register using my Remind101 code for their course. I also post this code to my blog and let parents know about it during Open House nights. This app allows you to send text messages directly to students and parents without knowing their phone numbers or you knowing theirs. If it's been a little while since my last message, my students actually ask me about them and request that I send out reminders about projects and assignments.
My Take
As a teaching tool, Remind101 primarily serves as a way of communicating easily and quickly with students and parents. A potential way of making this more of a two-way communication tool would be allowing students and parents to reply back to the Remind101 number. However, overall, I do love this tool, and I think the premise behind it is great.
