What is it?

Remind is a simple app that enables communication between a group of people. I saw this app used with great success by teachers and coaches at our local high school. It worked for both teacher-driven communications and for formal and informal groups that may or may not have included a teacher or coach.

What can it do?

Remind can facilitate communication across classes or within a community group. It’s a low barrier way to create a specific list for a specific purpose and communicate via mobile app or through your computer. Remind is specifically designed for K-12 education and is suitable to any group (teacher led or not) that needs to communicate with all its members.
