Remind App for Communication

This week’s #OttSlowChat question is about apps or websites that teachers find useful. I created a sketchnote to share why I love using Remind to communicate with students & parents.

Use Remind to communicate with:

  • students
  • parents
  • colleagues

People can choose to receive your messages via:

  • text message
  • the Remind app
  • email

You can choose between:

  • 1-way announcements
  • 2-way communication
    (you can set “office hours” to manage the time of day during which 2-way communication can occur)

You can send messages to:

  • the entire class
  • a small group within the class
  • an individual in the class

Send a message:

  • now
  • later (using the scheduler)

You can attach:

  • images
  • audio clips

Students will NEVER see your phone number!

I use it to communicate with the students in my classes as well as those in clubs and on sports teams that I work with. A very handy app!
