Text Students Safely
I've been following a great blog called Free Tech 4 Teachers by Richard Byrne. His latest entry is all about services that allow you to send text messages to parents and students. All of these are one way and protect either party from seeing the other parties phone number, so they're very safe to use.
I've used Remind and I love it because I know that the kids are getting my messages because they're glued to their phones. I wrote about it here. If you try one of these out and it works well for you drop me an email and let me know. One that looks intriguing is called Send Hub, which allows you to share groups with other teachers. Changes that you make are made automatically with those you shared it with.
