Tech Thursday- Remind

Today I'm linking up with Teaching Trio to talk about one of my favorite technology uses- communication!



Do you use Remind?

It is amazing!

It used to be called Remind 101, but don't let the name change fool you!

Remind is a really awesome group texting service.  It make communicating with parents so easy.  You type one message- all your parents get it!

Go to Remind.com, register your class and let your parents know!

There are 2 ways to let parents know about Remind.  On the right hand side of the page, is a blue button that says 'Add students and parents'

A screen will pop up that has 2 different options.  You can invite parents by adding their cell phone or email address and Remind will send them an invitation.

Or, you can download a pdf and send it home.  It also gives you a QR code.

I also make cards to send home. Click on the picture to download the editable cards I send home.


Remind is great for sending out quick reminders that are for the whole class.  

"Picture Day tomorrow!"

"Permission slips due tomorrow!"

As I go through my plans for the next week, I hope online and schedule any announcements I need to make.

Oh, did I forget to mention?  You can SCHEDULE texts to go out ahead of time!  This really helpful for me- because I'm pretty forgetful.  I sign up for my own texts and they remind me of important things happening the next day!

Has anyone else used Remind?  Any tips?
