SAMR Model Rating: Augmentation
Grade Levels: All grade levels
Subjects: All subjects
Summary: The Remind app (formally Remind 101) is a great way to send brief reminders to an entire class. It is a one-way text message device where the students (and/or guardians) receive information from the teacher. The students (and/or guardians) can not respond to the message nor are they receiving the actual phone number from the teacher.
Example: I like using this app when I want to remind the students about a big project due the next day or when I forget to tell the students where to meet for class. “Don’t forget to bring in your atom model to class tomorrow!” or “Please bring your headphones to class as we are meeting in the computer lab for class tomorrow.”
You can send messages to individual periods or all of your classes!
