It seems as if I can’t remember anything without a reminder. I have noticed that many of my students need reminders about assignments, projects, events, etc. So, when I came across Remind, I was elated.
Remind is a great way to communicate, one way, via text message. It’s a great way to implement active personal technolgies (APT). With Remind, I am able to send quick reminders, or updates without worrying about others getting my cell number. This is because the messaging in one way - meaning the recipient cannot respond. And, if the recipient does not use text messaging, they can opt for email instead.
