Remind: Safe Classroom Communication
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Remind (formerly Remind101) offers teachers a free, safe and simple way to instantly text students and parents. Teachers, coaches, or administrators can send reminders, assignments, homework, assessments, or motivational messages directly to students' and parents' phones. Interactions are safe because phone numbers are kept private, and teachers save time because the messages are one-way. For students and parents, Remind provides an easier way to stay informed outside of the classroom.
Use Remind to send free text messages to save time, engage students and involve parents with your class. Download the app to send and receive messages faster with push notifications, and see messages from your classes all in one place! If you love Remind, share it with your colleagues or write a review!
BLOOMBERG BUSINESSWEEK: “Jessica D, a teacher in Louisiana, uses Remind daily to brief parents on whether their children did well in class and what their homework is for the night. She says the app has led more students to complete their homework and even credits it with improving scores on standardized tests. “The word I use is ‘transform,’ ” she says. “It transformed my classroom. And I think it made me a better teacher.”
PARENTING: According to a study conducted by Harvard University, on average, teacher-family communication increased the odds a student completed their homework by 42% and decreased instances in which teachers had to redirect students' attention to the task at hand by 25%. Parent-teacher communication is clearly key to a student's success, and Remind can help.
BUZZFEED: “...SMS allows the app to be used by parents without smartphones. Brett Kopf said that Remind’s features have proved especially popular in low-income districts, where parent engagement is a key issue for teachers, and parents’ sometimes erratic work schedules can make it difficult to get in touch by phone.”
What's New in Version 4.7.0
- Now teachers can edit & correct a subscriber name for those students and parents who subscribe via SMS
- Teachers also have the ability to add subscriber notes for personal reference (i.e. “This is John's Mom”)
BEST APP EVER
I use this APP for all of my students who desire to sign up. It's safe to send messages as reminders such as test day, projects due, supplies or even just a thoughtful quote. You do not have access to student (or anyone's phone numbers) and they cannot access yours. It's a reminder system. You cannot send individual texts - the minimum is three people. You also add attachments now. I have parents sign up as well and they can monitor if their child has completed homework, etc. Coaches, music teachers, even supervisors can use this safely and never have to worry about a privacy issue. Best of all, it's FREE! You won't regret it!
Well thought out.
I coach HS football, wrestling, and track. I send notices to parents when our bus is nearly back at the school so I don't have to wait as long. Changes in team schedule, tournament schedules, and updates in athlete performance are all sent via Remind101. Parents love being kept in the loop, its ease of use, and free cost. Coaches love it because it is one way communication, it is free, and it makes our lives easier.
Great communication tool between Teacher, Student and Parents.
I am a parent of a high schooler. We have used this all school year and I absolutely love this App. It's nice that the teacher can send us reminders instantly about projects, test, if the kids need to meet in the library that day for class., etc....
Highly recommend this App for anyone who wants to keep in touch with their kids teachers.
