Remind AppRemind: Safe Classroom Communication FREE
Remind is perhaps the most innovating and must have app for teachers in 2014. Remind is a free service that enables teachers to send out mass emails and texts to students and parents without exposing their own private number or numbers of all the people being contacted. Teachers can send or schedule reminders, assignments, homework, assessments, or motivational messages directly to students’ and parents’ phones. For students and parents, Remind provides an easier way to stay informed outside of the classroom.
