Would you like to be able to send home reminders, information and notes to students and parents that they’ll actually READ? 1 out of 5 US teachers use Remind (formerly Remind101) to instantly connect with students and parents on a regular basis. It is free to setup and use, however if your student’s don’t have a bulk texting plan it may cost them to receive your updates. The company has committed to always keep at least some portion of this service free for teachers – they understand education. And, it integrates with Twitter!

Sign up for a free Remind account, and make sure to get the iOS or Android app for your phone or device.

If you’d like to see how it works, sign up for my Technology Training¬†group by texting @techtr to 81010:

A haunting and sometimes tough to watch documentary of the terrible things that can happen when texting and driving. Everyone, not just high-school aged kids, should watch this and heed the warnings and dangers of taking your eyes off of the road for just one second. A tough lesson to learn, but one that you certainly do NOT want to learn first hand.

Very interesting… You could do this same thing via Twitter or TextMarks, I guess, minus the anonymous part…

I tried to look for more information on what service they are using, and I found http://www.smscrimetips.com/ – but I could not find any sort of pricing information. It can’t be too expensive if a school is using it, can it?
