Remind 101

Several DFT teachers have been using an amazing tool called Remind 101 to communicate with students in a safe and secure matter.  

First a teacher sets up an account and creates a class.  The teacher then gives a code to students and parents that they can either text to a specific number or email to a specific address to be enrolled in the class.  Teachers can schedule reminders about upcoming assignments, last minute schedule changes, and anything else they might need to remind students about.  The teacher's phone number is kept private, and the students are listed by their name in her class list and not their phone number or email.  This help keeps both teacher and student information private between the two parties.
