Remind 101

When I speak to groups Remind101 is one of the items that gets the best reception.  It allows teachers to text willing (they have to sign up themselves) students and parents to receive homework reminders.  I usually set it so that students receive it around 6 pm when I know they are home.  I also suggest that students use a name such as "K Halla" and that parents go by "Mr. Halla."

Above is a video made by Matt Levi who took my teacher class on integrating technology two years ago.  If you work in FCPS schools you can sign up for it too.  Look for "Enhancing the Social Studies Class with Technology" in the Academy listing.

Next week Matt will be giving a presentation to other teachers using the PowerPoint below.
