For Teacher Appreciation Week this year, we asked our community of educators to share their insights about what makes them feel most appreciated—and what they appreciate most about what they do and the teachers around them.
At the beginning of the year, we sent out a survey that asked educators to rank statements that described why they use Remind.
Once upon a time, a few months ago, an engineer arrived at Remind for his first day of work and surveyed our different platforms. There was SMS. There were mobile apps for iOS and Android.
Last month, Brett announced a new product for schools in his first post on Medium. Today, we’re excited to officially launch Remind for Schools to help improve school communication.
Sessions. Days. Meetings. Trainings. Modules. No matter how it’s framed, PD—that is, professional development—doesn’t always inspire the type of excitement that educators might like it to.
As we shared in our 2015 Year in Review, Remind’s had a big year.
As the new year begins, here’s a look back at what happened in 2015. Last year was a big one for the Remind community—thanks for being part of it!
Last Tuesday, the Los Angeles Unified School District received an email threat that closed the schools in the country’s second-largest district.
Last year, we published a guide to some of our favorite ways to encourage students and parents to join Remind classes.
Most teachers are familiar with the changing requirements for how students are taught and tested in the classroom. In the last few years alone, major shifts have included the introduction of the Common Core State Standards, the first round of aligned tests, and the development of other state-specific standards and exams.
Teachers who work with some of the 4.4 million English language learners in the United States cite communication issues and a lack of resources as major reasons for a significant achievement gap. Only 3% of teachers at high-poverty schools say that students have the digital tools they need to successfully complete assignments. Often, teachers face both challenges at once.
“I use Remind and love it. Is there a way for team teachers to share an account so both of us can send messages?”
