Remind101: A Best App for Communicating with Students and Parents
Summary : Need help communicating with students and their parents?
Remind101 allows teachers to send messages to three or more of their students, whole classes, and their students’ parents. To do so, teachers must download the Remind101 app and create a class. Teachers are then supplied with a class code. Once a class is created, students and their parents must download the app, create a user profile, and enter the class code to receive their teachers’ messages. When teachers send messages, they can be received as either text messages or emails. Additionally, teachers can compose messages and send them immediately, or they can schedule the message to be delivered at a later date. Also, there is a companion website for Remind101 (www.remind101.com) that provides additional access. To ensure safety, Remind101 does not share individuals’ (teachers, students, and parents) personal contact information with other individuals. However, individuals must provide an email, telephone number, or both when registering to receive messages.
