Every wish you could send quick reminders and more to students or parents? This brief demo of the ed app 101 is by Remind, an ed tech start up company recently reported on in the New York Times. The company has raised $40 million this year after creating the free app used by 40 percent of teachers in states like Texas and Georgia to link teachers and parents. (Approximately a million teachers are reported to be using Remind’s software to communicate with 17+ million students.) The app allows teachers to remind students about things like homework assignments and to send photos, a great way to help cultivate a culture of belonging. Parents can also send messages to their children and teachers. According to Times’ article, the app has ranked in the top five most popular programs on the app stores of Apple and Google.
