"Remind: Your Communication Tool for Back to School"
August 29,2015, 12:00pm ET

With school already back in session in the U.S. for many (and very soon for others), a high priority for teachers and administrators is how they can best reach out to their parents and school community to establish effective communication. We are very excited to be able to feature in this week's webinar as an exciting tool to support this all-important task! In this webinar, Jordan Pedraza from Remind, and a panel of educators, will share best practices and stories of how teachers, students, and library staff can leverage Remind as a tool for learning, communication, and collaboration.

Huge thanks to our panel for sharing their experiences with us! Jordan Pedraza - Leader, Community and Growth at Remind
Sean Gaillard - Principal, John F Kennedy HS, Winston-Salem, NC
Anthony Silk - Teacher, The Harker School,San Jose, CA
Tiffany Kannengieszer - Teacher, William Penn HS, New Castle, DE
They'll provide an overview and discussion for using Remind in the classroom and beyond. Actively used in 50% of U.S public schools, and named a 2015 AASL Best App for Teaching & Learning, Remind is a free communication tool that helps teachers connect with students, parents, and staff. Remind helps school communities deepen relationships and engagement through instant and safe communication through text and mobile app messages. Whether you’re sending announcements to the entire school community or chatting with a small group of students or teachers, Remind can help you extend and deepen learning experiences for all.
