How I Use It
I have used this app for more than one occasion, school coaching, and family events. I have been of both ends of setting up and receiving the information. It is so easy to use/ set-up, You can do it on a computer or phone which makes it convenient for people on the go all the time. Remind 101 allows anybody to send reminders to only certain students and also to attach documents as well! This is able to do for groups, classes, or just little reminders. Some people just need to be reminded by the upcoming tests/quizzes, permission slips, important homework, special events at school, and basically anything else that I want to remind the students/parents about. It can go to any kind of phone, all you need is a phone number. It is also a great way to keep the parents in the loop as well, not to just fully depend on their students to remember or tell their parents on what is going on.
I love this app and what is it capable of doing. It gives a certain time that is set up "office hours" so that you cant send out messages past a certain time or can not receive any from anybody else. To have my students be prepared/ in the know for class throughout the week is helpful to keep them all on task and keep them on top of their game for learning. It is a way to make sure everyone know what is going on because there is always that one student that isn't paying attention in class. I really loved this app and plan on using it when I start officially teaching.
