AASL Recommended App: Remind

remindThe American Association of School Librarians (AASL) offers their 25 Best Apps for Teaching & Learning. The apps were chosen because they foster innovation, creativity, active participation, and collaboration.

This week we highlight Remind – an app that lets teachers text students and parents. In the app, “teachers, coaches, or administrators can send reminders, assignments, homework, assessments, or motivational messages directly to  students’ & parents’ phones.” AASL’s tip suggests teachers use it to let parents know what students’ homework is for the night.

The app is recommended for all students and is FREE on iOS and Google Play. They are available on a host of devices and usually cost money. Check out this overview presentation from Remind:
