Remind 101

Remind 101 | Educational Resources - Secondary Education |
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.

Great way to maintain communication.

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.

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

Could have great potential experiences for the classroom

Seth Dixon's curator insight, January 15, 2013 12:03 PM

Are you a high school teacher looking for some funds for your classroom?  The My Community, Our Earth: Global Connections and Exchange Program (PDF) is connecting high school students in the U.S. with their peers abroad (in Bolivia, Ghana, Nicaragua and the Philippines) through virtual online meetings.  The Association of American Geographers is especially eager to have AP Human Geography teachers participate in this program.  These meetings are arranged through online video conferences, online phone calls and chat sessions using Skype. The purpose of these meetings is to stimulate thinking and collaboration between high school students across international borders around sustainable development themes such as climate change, green economy, food security and hazards and vulnerability, while enriching cultural literacy. We are looking for formal and informal educators in the U.S., at the high school level, who would like to participate with us.

For every time that you complete one hour of exchange and submit one MyCOE exercise to our online system, you will receive $300 for your classroom (personal check or Amazon gift card). 

Ready to Participate? Please send e-mails to
