How I Use It
I send frequent messages to my students such as daily assignments (page # and problems assigned), reminders of upcoming tests, pictures of textbook page (since only about 3/4 of my students have an electronic device). I can message individual students, an entire class of students, or multiple classes at one time. I set up each of my classes, and students sign up for their class using a code I give them. Parents can sign up as well so they can stay informed. Even parents of high school students appreciate knowing their child's assignments, upcoming tests, etc.
This app is the best electronic tool I've ever used! I don't use it to teach, but it is a great tool for communicating.
