I’m about a week late on this but it’s still worth sharing the news that Remind 101 has released a free iPhone app. Remind 101 is a service for sending text messages to groups of students and their parents. The service is an opt-in service which means that students and parents have to enter a confirmation code to state that they do want to be contacted by you through the service. Remind 101 keeps phone numbers hidden so that the parties cannot see each other’s numbers. Learn more about Remind 101 in the video below.
Applications for Education
The Remind 101 iPhone app could be a good tool to use to keep students and parents informed of important information about your classes. You could use it to send reminders about assignments, use it to send encouragement, or use it to send praise for a job well done on an assignment.
