Remind text messaging! At times throughout the semester, do you wish you could get a quick message to your students? I would highly recommend using Remind to communicate with your students. This tool is free! Many students already have knowledge of this service because it is used in most high schools to communicate with their students. This service allows you to quickly push out messages to your students without giving them access to your personal cell phone number. You choose if the service is one way or allow students to text you back. This is all done without exchanging phone numbers.
