What is Remind?
It's a free text/email service teachers can use to communicate with the parents of their students. Remind provides you [the teacher] with a Remind ID and access code. You share the sign-up info with the parents so that they can subscribe to your classroom feed. Remind will also provide you with a personalized sign-up link to send out in addition to a letter [PDF] with your info which can be sent home with the students.

The bonus feature--other than the fact that it's FREE--is that each message you'll be sending out during the year is a one-way deal. It only goes from you to them. Nothing comes back your way. [Although I haven't checked lately to find about any new features.] And, sensibly, no contact information is revealed or shared. Everything is kept anonymous by the good folks at Remind.

If you'd like to see what the parents of your students will receive from Remind when they sign up for your message feed, sign up for mine. [Other information about how to sign up is shown below.]

I'm thinking that Remind has both a great tech vibe and a commendable ease-of-use interface. What's not to like about that? At the moment, the early betting line indicates that Remind is going to become somewhat indispensable before too long.

My own experience using Remind for a year or so now? Chicken dinner. And the new features they continue to add are rather impressive. Attaching a PDF to a message? Oh, yeah. Well played.

And as I continue to use it, I'll figure out new ways to maximize the strategy. Which is just how it goes with a new idea for the classroom: it evolves with use. If past is prologue, I can almost guarantee it's going to keep getting better and better.

Bottom Line: The New Mgmt RemindFeed will be a simple way to keep teachers informed about the new projects and strategies I'll be working on this year.

If you'd like to receive notifications, you can sign up in one of two ways. It just depends upon your preference for how the message is delivered to you.
