Remind: School Communication – How to use on PC Free – Windows 10, Mac
Download the Remind App on your PC and stay in touch with your students and their parents from you PC, Now I will be guiding you on how to get the app on your Windows and Mac PC.
What is the Remind PC app?
Remind for Windows is a safe, classroom-friendly communication website and app where teachers can send messages, en masse or targeted, to individuals or groups without disclosure of anyone’s personal contact information. Messages can also be translated into over 70 languages. While Remind used to be a one-way messaging app, new features allow parents and students to respond as well, but users can independently decide to disable this feature. Teachers can share text, audio, or video messages as well as links, files, and images. Users can even collect funds for fundraisers, supplies, or events (with a small fee per transaction).
Use Remind for PC to efficiently reinforce communication systems you already have in place. In addition to a class blog, learning management system, or student agendas, you can send or schedule a text message (including attachments) to remind students and families about important due dates, upcoming tests and quizzes, schedule changes, field trips, or other pertinent information. You can also use it to extend encouraging messages before or after exams or tests, or even before a day with a substitute teacher.
Organization and time management are important predictors of students’ success in school, and consistent communication between school and home helps students develop these two crucial traits. By sending assignments, reminders, and updates through the app to the devices students use every day, teachers can empower them to be more proactive about their learning.
Encouraging students to respond can help them self-advocate, and teachers can foster social and emotional learning through relationship building and words of encouragement. Inviting families to subscribe can keep them informed about what’s happening in class and give them a way to support students who need it.
