Description: Remind.com is a widely used web tool that allows for communication between students, parents, and teachers. The organization has a website and has also developed an app that can be used on most mobile devices. The tool gives teachers the opportunity to send out announcements to an entire class and their parents. These announcements can be translated and support multimedia (within a certain size). These announcements can be scheduled for future dates as well. Aside from announcements, the platform has a chat feature. Teachers can communicate directly with parents and students and vice versa. All chat logs are saved to support accountability, and the teacher can block participants in the case of harassment or misconduct. Students phone numbers and other personal contact information are kept completely confidential through this platform. Students can ask questions about homework, teachers can give reminders to students about upcoming events, and parents can communicate questions and concerns to teachers.
