Teachers are always asking for an easy to use way of sending out quick notices or reminders to their students. One way is through email, but who wants to spend time creating and maintaining a large group? And what if you want to email just your home room, or your period 4 English class?
Remind (formerly Remind 101) is a web service that has been around for a few years now. It is a simple app that allows teachers to send quick messages to students and parents. It also allows the messages to be sent to a cell phone, without needing to know the student or parent’s number, and without revealing yours.
All MURSD teachers and students already have an account with Remind through their district Google Apps account. It is quick, easy and painless for parents to sign up, as well.
If you are a teacher who is interested in trying out this service, check out the resources below.
