App of the Month
June 2016: "Remind"
This free, user-friendly IOS and Android text messaging app allows “instructors” to quickly and easily send reminders, updates, announcements, files, links, photos, audio messages, and simple polls to “students” and/or their parents. With Remind, neither the instructor, nor the recipient, knows each other’s cell phone numbers. Options of advance scheduling of announcements, setting up two-way “chats”, establishing chat “office hours”, and translating messages into multiple languages.
