Teacher Review for Remind

I think this app is great! It's a great way not only to remind students about assignments, but to facilitate digital discussions with students. I think it can certainly support higher order thinking through discussions.

General
How I Use It
I would like to use it through class discussions in and out of the classroom. Since students are always on their phones, it would focus their attention on the discussion. I have yet to use it in this capacity, but I believe it can work. The only thing that I'm not sure of which will determine if I use this app is if other students will see the phone numbers of the other members of the class discussion.
My Take
I believe that it can be effective, and it might encourage students who don't necessarily like to speak up in class to contribute to the general discussion of the class.
