Remind 101 Gets a Great Update!

remind 101

 

Remind 101 is one of my favorite classroom tools. Essentially, Remind 101 allows me to send out one-way group texts to my parents and students.  I have been using it to send out homework and project reminders, as well as updates to exciting news in our classroom. It is a web-based application that also has a slick app for the iPhone and Android.  Students and parents register and they can receive a text, email, or both of reminders you send out.  Instead of logging on to a site, the messages you send out go directly to the devices everyone is already holding. Best of all, no messaging you back.  The texts are one-way.

Today, Remind 101 received a great update — Attach.  Attach allows you to attach photos to your messages. If you need to send a picture of a white board, a book, or an awesome project you can now attach it.  This feature was missing until today.  (I actually used DropBox to upload a picture and create a html link to include.  Now I don’t need those extra steps.)

If you are looking for a great way to message all of your student at once and avoid lots of hassles, Remind 101 is awesome and free.  The new Attach upgrade just makes it even better.

Enjoy.
