How I Use It
I used Remind to send my students weekly reminders and announcements. The reminders I sent were mostly due dates for projects and assignments. Where I think I found the most success with Remind was when I used it to send home a quick message that tells the students what they are going to learn that week. I also set up two separate Remind classes. One for my English speaking parents and one for my Spanish speaking parents. I found this super helpful for bridging the language barrier. While I never personally got to play with the attachment feature I have heard of people using it to send home copies of homework and pictures of student work.
My Take
Remind is a quick and easy way to text your students and parents. I really like the fact that both the teacher and student/parents phone numbers are kept confidential. My favorite Remind feature is the ability to schedule text messages. Being a busy teacher I rarely had time to sit down and compose a text when I thought about it. Using the scheduling feature I was able to schedule when my texts would go out. This helped save me a lot of time because I could schedule everything on a Friday and then have Remind send the message on a Sunday. What I also liked Using Remind helped my teaching by allowing me to send a once a week reminder that included important information. Plus it's free!
