Remind101 is the easy solution for teachers (or other educators) to get messages out to students, parents, colleagues, and more. I have promoted using Cel.ly before, and have used it successfully. But Celly, while an awesome program, can be daunting to those not familiar with the program, texting, or messaging. Parents, administrators, and fellow teachers may balk at it due to sheer complexity.
So today I share a simpler program that is easy and might serve a need–at least until one is ready to step it up with a service like Celly.
Use it to remind students of tests or homework assignments. Let parents know of expected delays in returning from a field trip. Remind colleagues of scheduled meetings. Remind club members of the next meeting. Remind team members (and their parents) of practice times. All with your choice–the website, an email, or a text message via mobile device. No numbers are shared. Safe. Check it out. Definitely worthy of trying out.
