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 & parents. Teachers, coaches, or administrators can send reminders, assignments, homework, assessments, or motivational messages directly to students' & parents' phones. Messaging is safe because phone numbers are kept private. Teachers save time because they can send quick, one-way Announcements, or opt-in to Chat for personalized communication with a student or parent. For students and parents, Remind provides an easier way to stay informed outside of the classroom.
Teachers, students, and parents can download the Remind app to stay connected more easily. 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 5.3
Bug fixes and other improvements.
Even college students love it
We can't rely on paper calendars anymore. I'm a college professor and include this in my syllabus for every course I teach. Just load in reminders for all assignments before the semester starts and let the program do its work for you.
It's great for announcements like bad weather days too.
I'm convinced it's saved more than a few students from failing due to forgetting!I have not tried the chat part, but the ability to include documents and pictures from lecture comes in handy. Use it, it only takes a minute to subscribe and your student ratings for communication and use of technology will increase😃
I love this app. It is very stable. Easy to use, and the messages go out in an instant. I use it to keep in touch with a Bible Study group & the likes. Some groups are over 45 people. The app handles it beautifully. I love the "invite subscribers" feature because some providers do not allow texting this app. But if you send out a message, they are able to respond with a "Yes". Great job developers.
It is great for keeping in touch with all of my middle school classes! There is marching band, band, Chorus, chorus fest, math, English, history, science, and home Economics, and much more! It is soooo useful bc you can keep in contact with all of your teachers, and other students! It's great! Love it! You should make a whole line of apps for that category! (School and activities)
