.@Remind101 For The Win #edtech #edchat

I just wanted to share a quick post on the awesomeness of Remind101.

My district had another Snow Day on Tuesday. This was the 4th one this year and the most the district has ever had. I have been planning a big mock trial for a number of weeks and the snow days have caused some serious problems with the schedule. This latest snow day caused the trial to be pushed back another day. If it were not for Remind101, I never would have been able to communicate to all of my students what the plan for the next day was going to be. Remind101 is truly allowing me to communicate with my students in a way that simply not possible just a couple of years ago.

Now, Remind101 has added another feature that allows teachers to send messages to smaller groups of students instead of the entire class. Here is a great video on how this works.

This amazing free service is something that educators really need to take the time to get to know and implement in their classroom. My students have been very pleased with how it has been used and it has saved the day multiple times this year already. What are you waiting for? Get started! 


  1. I absolutely love Remind101! I had no idea that I could do a "Team" update. That is fantastic news. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I tried to use remind 101 this year and it didn't catch on. Only 2 parents signed up. Do you have any ideas on how I can encourage parents to sign up.


Please post your thoughts here. Thanks!
