BUZZFEED: 25 Clever Classroom Tips for Elementary School Teachers
“Use the Remind (formerly Remind101) app to communicate with kids and their parents without having to exchange phone numbers”

POWER TO TEACH: “With students carrying smartphones every where they go, using Remind as a tool to communicate with them just makes sense, especially when it is free and the privacy of everyone involved in protected.”

PARENTING: According to a study conducted by Harvard University, on average, teacher-family communication increased the odds a student completed their homework by 42 percent and decreased instances in which teachers had to redirect students' attention to the task at hand by 25 percent. Parent-teacher communication is clearly key to a student's success, and Remind can help.
