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 5.2
Chat with school colleagues: Teachers with a school linked to their Remind account can now start a Chat with their fellow teachers.
PERFECT APP FOR CLASSROOM
Great app! Easy way to send reminders to students in your classroom about homework, quizzes and test! I've been using it for 3 years now, and the app gets better and better. The first year, I could only text the entire class. The 2nd year, I was able to text a small group of students. The next year, the app allowed me to text one student and chat with that one person if I prefer. The creators are continuously enhancing the app to better assist educators with their jobs! I really appreciate it! :)
We use this in our community college paramedic program to communicate with both students and faculty. It works great and I'm very impressed with the ease of use of this app. I just wish we had starting using it earlier. :-)
Absolutely love this app
This is an awesome app to have if you are an educator. I have used this to stay in touch with my students and their parents. The "we didn't get any homework" excuse never works anymore.
