Best Communication App Ever
This app is truly amazing and time efficient for busy parents with multiple children in different schools. I have been using this app the entire time my 9-year-old has been in public school. I am able to send notes to my sons teacher which arrive in the form of a text message. His teacher receives them immediately and can respond back just as fast. We find ourselves texting each other often to keep that constant line of communication open about progress, behaviors, etc. my son also has a diagnosis of ADHD so I have to speak with his teacher often about incidents throughout the day. I feel this is a great way for educators to stay in contact with the parents. Some kids need more attention than others and this app affords them the opportunity. This is definitely a must have for the parent-teacher relationship. Also, whoever downloads the app and registers with their child’s class will be able to post in the group forum. This is great for planning birthday parties or cool surprises. The parents can also chat amongst each other as well. The capabilities of this app are endless. Inform your child’s school today and keep tabs on your kids like never before! My son knows that every time he looks sideways...I’m going to find out about it! Best feeling ever! Enjoy!
Remind is a one of a kind tool to use in classrooms, clubs, and really any organization that needs mass communication. It is really simple and easy to use. It can take less than a minute to send a message to the group, and even allows private chats between students and teachers. I think one of the best things about Remind is that it allows teachers to communicate with students without the awkwardness of private phone numbers. It is all done through the app so the numbers are confidential.
However, the only down side is that it is very difficult to send large messages to the group because there is a character max of about 130. If Remind were the change it to about 200, I think it would make communication even easier. Sometimes there just isn’t enough space to say all that needs to be said, so the new max character count would aid in that aspect.
Other than that, Remind is a high quality and effortless way to communicate within organizations!
Good so far, but could use improvement
I really enjoy using remind because it’s user friendly and extremely compatible with all of my apple products. Even my students without smart phones are able to use remind through SMS. I also love the feature of allowing parents to join a class. However, there are a few features that are lacking. I don’t like that my characters are limited when I send an announcement. I tend to send a lot of attachments and that seems to lower the character count additionally. Also, I like to create videos of my solutions to problems and send them to students. Remind doesn’t allow for videos to be sent. It does allow pictures to be sent, but if I have a multitude of pictures (for example a packet where each page is its own separate picture), I have to send the pictures one at a time in their own separate messages. I’m looking forward to updates that will make Remind even more useful for my students and myself.
Thank you for sharing! A regular SMS message is limited to 160 characters by cell carriers, then we use 20 of those characters for your class name (announcements) or signature (conversations), so that's why the messages are limited to 140 characters. We've just launched a couple Remind Plans that include new features like much higher character limits and phone calls. If you think your administration might be interested in upgrading to a School or District Plan, you can send them here: remind.com/plans.
