How I Use It
I send reminders to my students regarding assignments, tests, quizzes and readings. This app also allows the student to reach out to me during non-school hours if they have a question or concern. Students have also messaged me on Remind when they miss school due to an illness. This allows them to notify me and get an idea on what they are missing in class so they come prepared upon their return. As the facilitator, you can decide if you would like the students to be able to communicate with each other or just with you, the teacher. You can type a reminder and schedule its delivery for a later date and time, too!
I love this app! I use it in all of my classes and it seems as if all of my students that sign up for it love it too. There are only two drawbacks I can think of. First, not all students may have the means to download this app. Second, there is a message size limit. Other than that I highly recommend this tool.
