Remind is a safe, free way to send out text messages to students, parents, and groups via an anonymous text. Teachers can use their cell phones, computer or mobile device to text reminders and keep in touch with parents, but the recipient does not see the teacher’s cell phone number. Remind is free for teachers and is unlimited. It can be used via a browser or on mobile devices.
Interacting and collaborating with others is a cornerstone to digital fluency. Teachers can send out reminders to students and parents of upcoming assignments, field trips, report cards, deadlines, theme days, conferences, or check to a teacher’s website for newly posted digital content. Teachers can also add attachments, such as photos, homework exemplars, and presentations to their message. A staff group could be set up to announce emergency closures and announcements.
