Remind 101

While browsing through Edmodo today, a link was shared that caught my eye (Thanks Mr. Woicik).  It led to a site called Remind 101.  The site looks very promising, though it is still in Beta mode.  This site allows teachers to utilize text messaging with students and parents.  Remind 101 provides a safe and secure environment to do so.  Once students have joined their teacher's class, the teacher can then text out reminders.  The texts can even be dated to send out at a later time and day.  A site like Remind 101 mostly applies to middle school and high school students.  I believe that cell phone use in the classroom has barely been tapped into. Maybe, Remind 101 will push the initiative in the right direction.
