This is fantastic!  For our visual learners, this technology can easily be embedded into daily instruction.

A safe way for teachers to text message students and keep in touch with parents.


I've tried numerous methods including Facebook groups and Twitter hashtags as ways to digitally connect with my students through emerging social media platforms.  Every method seems to have a few privacy or accessibility issues and this is no expection.  However, for this one, I think that the benefits outweigh the negatives and it has much greater privacy control than most.  I haven't tried this out yet, but next semester I hope to use this free way to text message all my students (and/or parents) without the privacy issues of sharing cell phone numbers or getting them to sign up for a new social media platform.

I use this with all my classes and I would recommend it! It's simple and very easy to use and teach parents/students to sign up.

Great way to maintain communication.

This is an interesting possible way to connect with students or organizational members.
