Remind 101 ~ A great tool for communicating with parents and students

(Last Updated On: April 20, 2017)

Remind 101 is a great tool for communicating with parents and students (who text… ok that is most of them over the age of ______, I’d like to say 12, but it might be younger.)

As a teacher, you set up a free account at Remind101.  Then, you share the sign up directions with parents and/or students.  They are able to sign up to receive your notifications either via text message or via email.  Check it out!  Great tool!

Here are a few more links to help you learn more about Remind 101:

Here is how it works:

To share a top ten list from Teacher Blogger Jennifer Roberts on How Do I Love Remind 101…Let Me Count the Ways.  Here they are: 

1. I can set up multiple classes and text them separately or in combination. 
2. My students and parents can opt for text or email messages or both. 
3. I can schedule my messages ahead of time. 
4. I never have to know student phone numbers. 
5. They never have to know mine. 
6. I can send messages from the web or from my phone with the app. 
7. There is a record of every message I send. 
8. There is a widget to display those messages on my blog. 
9. My students love getting important info via text. 
10. They can’t text back.
