*FREE REMIND.COM TEACHER USER GUIDE*
For many, text messaging has become the preferred method of communication, so why shouldn’t teachers tap into that, and keep parents and students informed via text? One of the simplest ways of texting parents/students is by using Remind (formerly Remind101). It’s quick, easy, and FREE! Teachers can create classes and text parents/students with reminders, praise, reschedules, important notes, files, photos, and much more.
Parents/Students cannot respond to Remind messages with a text, but with the newly added Stamps feature, students and parents can provide instant feedback to a teacher’s Remind message. Students and parents receive the message on the Remind app and can choose one of four stamps to give feedback ★ ✓ ✘ ?. This helps teachers get instant feedback on who is reading your messages, who likes them, or answers to questions (i.e., Who is going on the field trip tomorrow? Did you sign your child’s permission slip? Did you study for your math test?).
To get started, simply go to Remind.com and sign up OR download this FREE Remind.com Teacher User Guide for step-by-step instructions and helpful hints.
We hope this helps you stay connected this year! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
