For those of you who do not know, Remind 101 is an amazing, free service that allows you to send out messages through text to groups of people, such as your class, without using your actual phone number. You can send messages instantly or schedule them to be delivered at a later date and time, all from the website or their app.
Remind 101 is a one way conversation Your end users can only receive messages…they cannot reply to your message. It is very simple to use and a great resource for you and your class. Learn more about it from an earlier post here. What percentage of your students or parents do not have texting capability in this day and age? If you are not taking advantage of this service, you are missing out.
The latest update to Remind 101 allows you to send to small groups instead of your entire class. The smallest number of people you can send to is three. That is to keep you from one on one conversations that should most likely not be happening through this type of media.
This option is great for group projects or after school activities where only a handful of people need to receive your reminder, as well as many other situations you will run across throughout the year. Learn more about this update and how to use it on the Remind 101 Blog. A short video showing you how the new feature works is included in their post.
