How I Use It
The way I use Remind is to mostly keep in touch with my parents.. My students are Pre-K age so it really isn't engaging for them. Will probably work well for middle school to high school students.
I love Remind for simply keeping in touch with Parents. it is especially helpful to communicate with my Parents who speak a different language. I love that it has a translator for both myself and the parent to use. The only con I have is when I am sending a group message to inform ALL parents, there is a limit on how may characters may be used. I usually have to send multiple messages to get out what I am trying to tell the whole class.
