Remind for Texts to Your Students


I have been using Remind (used to be called Remind101) for the past three years (in fact their CEO even wrote a nice blurb for my book which is coming out in a few months).  Students today do not use email very often, but cannot text enough to save their lives!  So when I started using Remind I found that the amount of homework among my standard (non AP/IB) students improved dramatically.  If you have students who do not have smartphones, the service also allows emails.  Additionally you can send a message to as few as three students.

My name is Patrick Morrison and I am a student in the Elementary Education program at the University of South Alabama. Thank you for making this video. As a future teacher I find this to be a very interesting tool that you talk about. It reminds me of groups or pages on Facebook that you can follow but without all the hassle of having to have a Facebook account. This would also be a good way to keep in contact with parents in large numbers in a way that would not require you to keep a list nearby at all times should you need this. Would you mind if I share this on my EDM310 class blog for my fellow classmates? I will be summarizing my visits to your blog with a post on 9/21/14. My blog: http://morrisonpatrickedm310.blogspot.com/ and my class's blog http://edm310.blogspot.com/
