First of all, a big thanks to our friend & colleague, Barbaree Duke for bringing Remind101 to our attention! It’s a great tool for teachers to communicate with their students!

Remind101 provides a safe way for teachers to text message students and stay in touch with parents. It is 100% free and is used by over 200,000 teachers, students and parents to send millions of messages every month.

Now you can message your entire class of students or parents in seconds. Teachers never see students’ phone numbers and students never see theirs. All students and parents do to join is just send a text message (no computer needed). Unlimited, free text messages between you, your students and their parents.

Every week we select a new app and share its description in our “Apps We Love” column. We do not endorse devices from any one company or receive any kind of compensation for these features. We just share links to apps that can help you teach, learn, work and grow.
