Yay Jordan!

03:55 - Lucy Gray
@Joan, absolutely! Sign me up. When is it?

04:00 - Peggy George
we know building community is so important but finding time to maintain the communication is always a challenge! That's where REMIND comes in! So easy to use!!!

04:06 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Sent out my first Remind notice to parents today and included a study guide attachment.

04:11 - Peggy George

07:44 - Sean

07:54 - Sean
Any admins out there?

07:56 - Diane Peterson 1
Cool to hear your voice Sean! #edbeat fan!

07:59 - Lucy Gray

08:04 - Sean
Hey, Diane!

I'm a retired principal and sure wish I had Remind when I was a principal!!!

08:18 - @teachwithsoul
Go RCE's! Join us every 1st/3rd Thursday for #RCEchat on Twitter

08:29 - Peggy George
Hi Linda K and Stidmama!! Great to see you!

08:31 - roxanne clement
all of them, and still many of our parents don't know what's going on

08:33 - Peggy George
Welcome Carla!

08:42 - Diane Peterson 1
Paper communication easily gets LOST

08:46 - Carla 2
Hi Peggy!

09:01 - Peggy George
so often the paper notes/flyers don't make it hope or get buried in the backpack never to be seen!

09:06 - Peggy George
Welcome Jaime!!

09:20 - Carla 2
Exactly! We can book bags the black hole!

09:20 - Lucy Gray
My own 7th grader is not organized... wish his teachers would use Remind. Going to send him to school in a Remind t-shirt, I think, to "remind" them!

09:25 - Trish
When I'm free during school day during preps, parents are often busy at work.

09:31 - Sean
Love that idea, Lucy!

09:34 - Jim Carlton 1
I have all of my classes on Schoology, but I teach in a rural area, and not all of my students have internet at home - they do however all seem to have cell phones. So I use remind for "reminders" for all my classes

09:39 - Stidmama
😀 Glad to be here?, we are rolling out more communications tools this year.

09:43 - Peggy George
in spite of our good intentions about going to websites and blogs to get the latest news/info from school we get busy and forget!

09:51 - @plnaugle(Paula)
That's a great idea, Lucy!

10:16 - Peggy George
so interesting to see these stats on texting--and that doesn't require a smartphone!

10:18 - Sean
I need a Remind Tie to help encourage the Remind Joy!

10:32 - roxanne clement
love the subtle messaging Lucy!

10:37 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
Sean, should we start a Remind clothing line?

10:37 - Peggy George
:-) love it Sean!

10:38 - @plnaugle(Paula)
During Open House on Wednesday, I told parents about how Remind would help us this year.

10:42 - Sean
These are powerful statistics.

11:22 - roxanne clement
I want a tshirt !

11:33 - Peggy George
yes Roxanne!!!! I want one too!

11:34 - Paul 2
Me too

11:37 - Sean
Simplicity engages.

I like that I have records of conversations.

12:12 - Peggy George
Welcome to everyone just joining us! So glad you're here!

12:27 - Lucy Gray
Sorry for my emoticons... chat froze one me and hit any key. :)

12:29 - Diane Peterson 1
Variety of access is amazing

12:29 - Peggy George
LInk to our Livebinder full of Remind resources including videos

12:42 - Sean
Yes, looking forward to using Chat Feature soon!

12:56 - Diane Peterson 1
Haven't tried Chat yet...

12:58 - roxanne clement
love the idea of office hours!

12:59 - Carla 2
Love the chat feature! It helps to clarify misunderstandings....

13:04 - Samantha 2
I LOVE office hours.

13:15 - Peggy George
how do you know when it's ok to reply to a Remind message with a chat and when it is only an announcement?

13:17 - Samantha 2
Chat is amazing, Diane

13:28 - Lucy Gray
For Chicago folks, I believe these brothers graduated from Niles West!

13:39 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
If the chat feature is turned on (if you allow students to start chats) any message can be replied to

13:40 - Susie @shighley #2
I met Brett at ISTE in San Antonio in 2013. So impressed

13:43 - Peggy George
office hours make so much sense--you control the schedule/time

13:55 - Sean
Like the office hours idea.

13:58 - Jim Carlton 1
why no windows phone app?

14:02 - Peggy George
thanks Tiffany!!!

14:10 - Carla 2
As long as the teacher has he chat feature enabled, you can respond to anything via chat.

14:38 - @teachwithsoul
I met Brett at his first ISTE 2012 in San Diego in the early years. He and David are amazing!

14:48 - roxanne clement
I see great addition to using Edmodo!

14:52 - Peggy George
so many possibilities for sharing!! our presenters will be giving some of their examples

15:04 - Diane Peterson 1
Our PTF now has Remind for entire school!

15:13 - Carla 2
As a district Instruction Tech. Coord., I send tech tidbits out to teachers and admins.

15:29 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
Got to speak with Brett about my story and how Remind has impacted my classroom. It's awesome that he is so invested in what teachers think!

15:30 - Samantha 2
I can't seem to get a handle on edmodo. 😕

15:31 - Peggy George
relationships are the key to successful school experiences whether with students, parents, colleagues or community!

15:41 - Lucy Gray
I'm amazed by the creative ways schools are using Remind...

15:42 - roxanne clement
Helping to focus and direct our community to important info

15:49 - Paul 2
What is PTF?

16:02 - Peggy George
@Samantha do you mean edmodo in general or using Remind on Edmodo?

16:04 - Lorie Moffat
parent teacher federation?

16:12 - Diane Peterson 1
Parent Teacher Fellowship. Like PTA / PTO

16:16 - @plnaugle(Paula)
My students love Edmodo. We start with it during the first week of school.

16:28 - Peggy George
thanks for asking Paul! I was wondering too!

16:39 - @teachwithsoul
I'm working to support CA Educators to connect with Remind. Let me know if you want to connect! ;)

16:41 - Peggy George
this is awesome!!! 6 languages!

16:43 - roxanne clement
in addition to running our classes with Edmodo using Remind to "remind" and direct

17:04 - @plnaugle(Paula)
I need to learn how to use Remind in Spanish.

17:10 - Samantha 2
@peggy Edmodo in general

17:29 - Diane Peterson 1
I use as Weightlifting Team Mom too :)

17:32 - Sean
I see a pic of Jen Williams!

17:55 - Peggy George
thanks! We have done some sharing in previous webinars about Edmodo but maybe we need to do an entire session with all of the current features!

17:56 - Tiziana Angiolini from Italy
It is a pity that it is not available in Italian!! Most parents in Italy donot speak English... so I do n eed to use blogs or emails

18:04 - Lucy Gray

18:28 - Peggy George
that's a LOT of Connected Educators in Remind!!!

18:35 - Sean
RCE is an amazing community! Enjoying the connections and learning.

18:35 - Peggy George
Hi Patti! Great to see you!!!

18:49 - Patti Ruffing

18:55 - Peggy George
excited to be learning about #teachsmall !!!

19:00 - Peggy George
celebration of teachers!

19:00 - Lucy Gray

19:09 - Sean
#teachsmall is a Celebration of Teachers! Our noble profession!

19:14 - Peggy George (New features for Remind!)

19:18 - @bcdtech Maureen
Still the tech person without a cell phone here- have to use google voice for text. Cell service is too sketchy out here

19:27 - Peggy George (#TeachSmall Twitter hashtag)

19:42 - Sean
Amazing video for #teachsmall

19:46 - Sean

19:50 - Peggy George (Remind Blog)

19:52 - Samantha 2
It really was

20:25 - Peggy George
that's a great work-around Maureen and good to know there are alternatives for people without a cell phone

20:34 - Peggy George
Welcome Tiffany!!!!

20:41 - Sean
Awesome Job, Jordan!

20:46 - elena.miller
go colonials!

20:48 - Sean
Welcome Tiffany!

20:57 - Peggy George (Tiffany Kannengieszer’ blog)

20:59 - Sean
Tiffany is an #EduHero!

21:33 - Peggy George

21:51 - Peggy George
love that idea!!!

22:07 - Diane Peterson 1
Like sending the screen shot out for demo

22:30 - Peggy George
love how she uses Remind for words of encouragement!!

22:35 - Samantha 2
Me too

23:07 - Deborah
Maybe I missed it, but how do you get everyone to sign up? How do you let them know about it in the first place?

23:23 - Peggy George
I'm sure those homework reminders also help the parents when their kids say they don't have any homework :-)

23:39 - Trish
You invite new students for the new year through email?

23:42 - Peggy George
Great question Deborah! Lorie will ask it during Q/A

23:47 - Diane Peterson 1
But I don't want to become an excuse that "mrs p didn't remind me. I didn't know."

23:52 - Samantha 2
On the first day, I have kids take out their phones and sign up

24:06 - Peggy George
love your ideas Tiffany!!!!

24:18 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
I post it on the board and give them 5 minutes to sign up!

24:22 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Thank you, Tiffany.

24:22 - Peggy George
Welcome Sean!! Love hearing about Remind from a principal's perspective!

24:24 - Jordan Pedraza
@Roxane - my Twitter is @jordanpedraza :)

24:34 - Carla 2
We make students write homework down in their agenda, but we still sent out the remind HW texts.

24:39 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
I also print off the PDF Remind sets up for you to send home

24:49 - Deborah
@Tiffany - What if they don't have phones?

25:01 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
I have lots of kids with iPods. It works on this, too!

25:01 - Samantha 2
I do that too (for open house, etc)

25:07 - Peggy George
entry point is a great description!

25:08 - @teachwithsoul
@Sean! Great to see admin on Remind. We hope to see the use Remind grow with Admin in CA and around the world!

25:22 - roxanne clement
thanks Jordan. We will definitely connect!

25:31 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
I am in high school so I have yet to have a student without some sort of device. I have a lot of students without smart phones, but they are still able to sign up!

25:34 - Peggy George

25:44 - Samantha 2
For me, if kids don't have phones, I have them get on the class computer to sign up

25:46 - Jordan Pedraza
@Deborah - folks can receive email updates too from Remind classes

25:48 - Rose-anne Camilleri
So remind works only through mobile phones

25:51 - Peggy George
Sean definitely walks the talk! Check out his tweets and follow him!

25:59 - Lucy Gray
So important! That's what great leaders do!

26:18 - Jordan Pedraza
Teachers can sign up for Remind without a phone too - at

26:19 - Samantha 2
@rose-Anne or iPod touches/iPads...

26:24 - Diane Peterson 1
Really works for me! Like to receive #edbeat and #celebratemonday

26:30 - Samantha 2
Devices with apps

26:31 - Peggy George
Welcome to those of you just joining us! Our Livebinder for today's resources is here:

26:36 - Carla 2
@Rose-anne: No, you can access remind through texting, the app, or email.

26:39 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
Diane, I definitely agree. I preface it by saying this is something extra I do to help them, it is not something that is guaranteed, so they still need to be responisble and fill out their agendas. It's me taking an extra step to help them be successful

26:40 - Rose-anne Camilleri
is it fine with tablets?

26:49 - Samantha 2

26:53 - Lucy Gray
By the way, Remind is developing a dashboard for admins. Sign up here to learn more:

26:57 - Rose-anne Camilleri
thanks cool

26:57 - Diane Peterson 1
Thanks, Tiffany

26:57 - Peggy George
#coffeeEDU is such a great concept! we have one coming up in a couple of weeks in Phoenix!

26:59 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
coffeeEDU is great!

27:03 - Samantha 2
If it can get an app

27:15 - Samantha 2
I wanna do a coffeeEdu

27:16 - Peggy George (Remind FAQ)

27:18 - Deborah
@Jordan & Samantha- Thanks, what about inviting the parents? How does that occur?

27:21 - Rose-anne Camilleri
our kids are not allowed to use phones in school so using tablets instead is great

27:24 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
I love it! I definitely suggest it

27:34 - Lucy Gray
Uplife the school culture... love it.

27:38 - Lucy Gray
uplift rather

27:52 - Peggy George
so true about Mondays!!! excellent idea!

27:55 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
Yes! Kids love shout-outs

28:08 - Samantha 2
@Deborah I send out emails, tell them at PTC, open houses

28:17 - Jordan Pedraza
@Deborah - when a Teacher creates a class we show a few ways to invite students or parents

28:30 - Samantha 2
Or I send parent letters home with kids

28:31 - Diane Peterson 1
Now I even get ready for a #celebratemonday good msg because of the REMINDer from Sean

28:35 - @bcdtech Maureen
If you use this in elementary school- no student devices allowed- do you send a note home to parents to have them sign up?

28:45 - Deborah
@Samantha2 - Ok, thanks

28:53 - Trish
where do I find that info, Jordan?

28:57 - Carla 2
You can print out directions and send them home.

29:09 - Jordan Pedraza
@Trish logon to your Remind account at

29:11 - Carla 2
We had parents sign up at Open House.

29:18 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
Sorry, Elena! Just got your email. Happy to see you made it in! Let me know if you have any questions.

29:23 - Diane Peterson 1
I share at Parent Night, include join info in emails and newsletter. I really want all parents on it with me

29:25 - Jordan Pedraza
Then click on a class. In the upper-right hand corner there's a button "Add students and parents"

29:28 - Peggy George
thanks everyone for asking your questions in the chat! Lorie will ask them on the mic during Q/A

29:45 - roxanne clement

29:49 - Diane Peterson 1
I have about half parent group signed up now.

29:55 - Ben
My principle is looking at a tool that can send whole school announcements to all parents... is Remind appropriate for this? or just small class messaging?

29:57 - Deborah
Does each class have it's own account or code or something the delineate?

30:03 - @teachwithsoul
Had 8 new teachers sign up parents to Remind at school where I was a former Principal! #relationshipsmatter

30:05 - Peggy George
if you have any blog posts or links about Remind you would like to share please post them in the chat and I'll add them to our Livebinder after the show

30:09 - Diane Peterson 1
How can I get all parents on board??

30:10 - Samantha 2
You create each class

30:17 - Carla 2
@Ben: definitely great for both!

30:19 - Jordan Pedraza
@Ben - yes! Principals can definitely use Remind for schoolwide announcements

30:34 - Lucy Gray
Yay Diane Main! We all know her!

30:35 - Jordan Pedraza
Remind can be used for both classes and schoolwide

30:44 - Carla 2
We'd give students incentives if their parents signed up @Diane

30:44 - Peggy George
awesome idea to use this to facilitate trips before, during and after the trip!!! Thanks Anthony!!

30:47 - @bcdtech Maureen
OUr school uses a "one call" system that calls all parents/teachers. Is textign more effective? Do you have data that tells you this?

30:56 - @bcdtech Maureen

31:02 - Samantha 2
@Deborah create each class with a different code

31:06 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
Diane, I give extra credit! Kids love extra credit

31:06 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Love Diane Mann! :)

31:07 - @teachwithsoul
@diane Good resources here:

31:08 - Stidmama
Our new superintendent started us with Remind during staff training this week. Love it.

31:16 - Diane Peterson 1
O, good idea Carla. Incentives to sign up.

31:23 - Peggy George
thanks @teachwithsoul!

31:27 - Deborah
@Samantha2 - Thanks!

31:36 - Diane Peterson 1
Thanks @teachwithsoul

31:44 - Peggy George (Remind blog Teacher Tips)

31:46 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
It's awesome to connect with other teachers in your building! You can search for other educators using Remind connected to your school and start a chat.

31:47 - Lucy Gray

32:06 - Peggy George
This is a great resource for ideas. (Remind ideas on Pinterest)

32:11 - Samantha 2
@diane our school has a "monetary" reward system and when they sign up, they earn one or two of them

32:34 - Peggy George
being able to schedule your messages in advance makes it much more manageable!

32:44 - Samantha 2

32:44 - @plnaugle(Paula)
You can schedule your Remind message for the week over the weekend so parents will be informed about HW, meetings, etc.

32:46 - Diane Peterson 1
Tiffany, extra credit incentive sign up -cool

32:49 - Ben
pre-planned messages....this is just what i need!

32:53 - Peggy George (Remind Back to School Guide)

33:11 - Peggy George (Connect to Your Website with a New Widget)

33:15 - Torrie Maas 1
I love scheduling messages!

33:16 - Deborah
@Carla = Ideas for incentives, please?

33:23 - Peggy George (Join Lisa Dabbs on New Teacher Chat @ntchat on Remind)

33:25 - Carla 2
Maureen: We use "School Connect" as well, but most parents don't listen to the voicemails. I know because they either chat me or send a message to our FB page asking questions. Plus, our admin is the only person who can do it. Remind is controlled by the teacher.

33:45 - roxanne clement
love this!

33:48 - Lucy Gray
If anyone wants to try out a Remind class, I've created a couple of classes. One is for global education resources, the other is specific for Illinois people, but all are welcome to join. I'll post the links.

33:49 - Samantha 2
@deborah hw passes, free time on a computer...

33:51 - @teachwithsoul
Even non school site educators can use Remind! I have a class for my New Teacher Chat #ntchat on Twitter on Remind. @ntchat is my class. You text 81010 with that code to join my class. Super easy!

33:53 - Carla 2
Bonus of HW passes

33:59 - @bcdtech Maureen
Good points Carla- esp teacher control

33:59 - Peggy George
this is so powerful!!!

34:00 - Carla 2

34:09 - roxanne clement
Lucy, I'll be there!

34:24 - Carla 2
We use Class Dojo, so students can earn Dojo points.

34:27 - Carolyn Stanley
I just sent a link to my former school principal. It sounds like a very useful tool.

34:32 - Diane Peterson 1
Haven't used Poll yet. After hearing example now, will do!! T

34:33 - Lucy Gray
Here's my Global Ed class:

34:34 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
Pre-planned messages are life changing!

34:40 - Samantha 2
That's a good idea Carla

34:45 - Peggy George
I joined your Remind group this week Lisa!! Love it!

34:45 - Deborah
@ Samantha - I'm a Business Ed teacher, they're on computers for my class

34:55 - roxanne clement
There's beauty in simplicity of the tool

35:05 - Samantha 2
@deborah ah...Nevermind lol

35:13 - Lucy Gray
Here's my class for Illinois innovators:

35:23 - Peggy George
fantastic stories Anthony!!!

35:24 - Carla 2
Whatever positive incentives you already have in place always work! You know your students the best.

35:27 - Diane Peterson 1
Polling parents / students & sharing results could work as the incentive to sign up. Your Vote Counts!

35:30 - Peggy George
ready for Q/A

35:33 - @teachwithsoul
Join my class here

35:34 - Lucy Gray
Great stories! Lots of ideas are percolating

35:36 - Peggy George
Lorie will ask them on the mic!

35:37 - Samantha 2
@deborah think of things they value and reward them for those things

36:00 - Peggy George
if you have new questions now please type them here in the chat

36:07 - roxanne clement
any tutorial links?

36:37 - Deborah
@ Carla 2 - I'll have to check out Class Dojo, heard of it, just never tried it....

36:44 - Peggy George
yes Roxanne--many in the Livebinder

36:44 - @teachwithsoul

37:02 - Peggy George
also here: (Remind video channel on YouTube)

37:15 - roxanne clement
thanks! love to use the tutorials with interested teachers nervous about starting!

37:34 - Peggy George
perfect Roxanne!! The short videos will be a big help!

37:54 - Diane Peterson 1
Appreciated the office hours last year when thought of sending msg out kind of late evening. I scheduled it so it wouldn't be too late again

38:00 - Carla 2
@Deborah: I absolutely love it! I even use it with adults for tech PD

38:04 - Deborah
@ Samantha 2 - I guess it would just be easier to ask them! Lol! At least it would give me some idea.

38:04 - Peggy George
good to know about the mobile web version coming for Remind!

38:23 - Lucy Gray
It's a great tool for PD... that's why I created the two classes I posted above...

38:40 - Torrie Maas 1
Kids who don't sign up feel left out, so a lot times that helps!

38:41 - Rose-anne Camilleri
great idea Lucy

38:57 - @teachwithsoul
Lots of Uni Professors have students on Remind to compliment their LMS. :)

39:02 - Lucy Gray
I actually would like to use it with my family. :) I remind them what needs to happen when... especially when I'm out of town! :)

39:05 - Torrie Maas 1
They realize they are missing important info!

39:05 - Rose-anne Camilleri
I conduct a lot of PD sessions for teachers

39:06 - roxanne clement
I make indiviual tool slides with links in Google Slides, make them into pdfs and email them out to my "nervous teachers"

39:09 - Peggy George
Librarians--Awesome Remind group! (Shannon Miller: I Hope You Join My New Remind Class "Shannon's Library & Tech Voice"...It Will Be An Easy Way To Learn & Stay Connected!)

39:20 - Deborah
@Samantha 2 - Yeah, I was thinking about it for a Women's Ministry too. It is only free for educators?

39:22 - Lucy Gray
Great idea, Roxanne!

39:38 - Peggy George (New Digital Citizenship Starter Kit for Remind)

39:39 - Lucy Gray
It's free for everyone.

39:46 - Lucy Gray
My daughter's softball team uses it.

39:57 - Deborah
@ Lucy - Great! Thanks!

39:59 - Diane Peterson 1
Remind website makes super easy instructions to print out and share or email a link

40:04 - Susie @shighley #3
I just got a message from Shannon's remind group today

40:28 - @teachwithsoul
How I use Remind with my #ntchat class

40:36 - Carla 2
One of the librarians in my district uses it for teachers and students. I thought that was a neat idea.

40:37 - Peggy George
panelists feel free to jump back in on the mic any time! your stories are so valuable!

40:38 - Anthony Silk
I think it's also important to note that it's just as easy to unsubscribe to the messages, so you are not tied into anything.

40:40 - Susie @shighley #3
Tell them they learn about school closings early on :)

40:57 - Peggy George
good point Susie!!!

41:00 - Lucy Gray
Consistent use

41:01 - Diane Peterson 1
I'm going to send notice next week "this is a REMINDer...Join our class!"

41:13 - Peggy George
good idea Diane!!!

41:15 - Carla 2
Cute @Diane!

41:23 - Peggy George
totally agree "if you build it they will come""

41:23 - Lucy Gray
I think it's pretty easy to be consistent with this... every morning, I send out my resources in my groups. It's a quick way to start my day.

41:39 - Diane Peterson 1
True Sean, not a One and Done. Keep at it

41:46 - Peggy George
yes Lucy!!! your Remind announcements are my morning alarm :-)

41:53 - Lucy Gray
There's voice in the app version, too, by the way

41:58 - Lucy Gray
You can record your message!

42:11 - Peggy George
Lucy would you like to take the mic to share? That would be great!!!

42:20 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
unfortunately, kannengieszer is too long for a class code :(

42:30 - Lucy Gray

42:30 - Carla 2
It worked so well for our sixth graders for the past two years that their parents put the pressure on the next group of teachers!

42:40 - Jordan Pedraza
Hahah @Tiffany

42:41 - Peggy George
hahaha Tiffany!!!!

42:41 - Eileen
Is anyone using this with elementary students/their parents?

42:47 - Lucy Gray
Sure, Peggy

42:56 - Lucy Gray
Give me a prompt and I will

43:01 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
Giving extra credit codes through a Remind message will definitely get kids to sign up!

43:03 - roxanne clement
We will be starting this year in several classrooms K-8

43:09 - Diane Peterson 1
Yes Eileen, my fourth grade classroom

43:18 - @teachwithsoul
@eileen...absolutely! 1000,s of Elementary Teachers are using Remind.

43:18 - Peggy George
Lucy raise your hand and Lorie will turn the mic over to you. You have permissions.

43:33 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Should I make a second group for my Spanish speaking parents?

43:41 - Tiffany Kannengieszer
That would be a great idea Paula!

43:42 - Peggy George
great question Paula!!

43:48 - Susie @shighley #3
Parents of my academic team loved notifications in practice times, revised pickup time after meets, etc

43:50 - Jordan Pedraza
@Paula great idea!

43:57 - Carla 2
After my PD session, I had three elementary schools and 1 middle school to sign up with 100% participation.

44:08 - roxanne clement
Sean, thank you for modeling technology...its so important for our admin to lead thru example!

44:16 - Peggy George
these questions are super!!! thank you all!!

44:27 - Jim Carlton 1
Peggy - I was thinking that maybe it could be set up for my Sophomore class - I am a sponsor along with another teacher. Can it be set up so the sponsors and class officers can send out messages about meetings, events, etc.?

44:49 - Diane Peterson 1
I send pictures of daily things, notes to parents to check the 4th grade classroom Twitter action!

45:00 - Peggy George
love that question Jim!!! That would be a great way to use it! We'll ask the experts :-)

45:08 - @teachwithsoul
@Lucy...yep! I have had my Remind group for over a year! Text @ntchat to 81010.

45:20 - Carla 2
@Jim: Our sixth grade team created the group as a team. We created a group gmail account to use

45:22 - Jordan Pedraza
@JIm - yes! Great idea

45:39 - Jordan Pedraza
And we're working on multi-owner classes :)

45:44 - @bcdtech Maureen
ugh! my audio keeps cutting out- looks like a bandwidth issue for me

46:01 - Lucy Gray
IL and anyone else:

46:15 - Peggy George
I love getting Lucy's remind announcements and links! They come in early for me on PDT but they're waiting for me when I wake up :-)

46:15 - Sheri Edwards
ah. yes: multi-owner classes :)

46:26 - Lucy Gray
Here is where I've embedded my global one:

46:36 - @teachwithsoul
I have ateacher at an Elementay school using for Student Council.

46:54 - Lucy Gray
And here's the global one:

47:06 - Carla 2
One of my teacher friends even uses it with her church youth group.

47:26 - Ben
Does this simply work like Whatsapp or Viber?

47:30 - @teachwithsoul
Remember you can just text your Class Code to 81010!!

47:38 - Lucy Gray
Maybe I should post them later, Peggy, but the group is global so it's early somewhere! :)

47:45 - Rose-anne Camilleri
We will be having tablets in our elementary classes in a particular year group 7-8yr olds. So you think I could use remind?

47:45 - Lucy Gray
That was for Peggy...

47:48 - Sue 1
What about the age requirement? We had a parent challenge

47:54 - @teachwithsoul
No need to use the app if you have an older style flip phone.

47:56 - Diane Peterson 1
I share websites with my elem parents that we are using such as

48:00 - roxanne clement
How are you managing multiple groups....does it look like texting groups?

48:02 - Peggy George
no problem Lucy! great way to wake up!

48:34 - Peggy George
so helpful to hear answers to all of these question!!!!

48:47 - Sue 1
I thought the website said

48:51 - Sue 1

49:17 - Peggy George
thanks for clarifying! teachers need to be over 18 :-)

49:22 - Eileen
Very helpful.

49:36 - Peggy George
whatsapp for education...

49:52 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Virtual applause to our presenters today. Love Remind and excited to finally use it with my parents. :)

50:04 - Diane Peterson 1
Use Remind on a museum field trip, "make sure to see..." "Meet for lunch in 5 min..."

50:12 - Tiziana Angiolini from Italy

50:18 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Have a great weekend, everyone. Have to go.

50:26 - Sheri Edwards
Bye Paula

50:47 - Peggy George
any final words from our panelists before we wrap up the webinar?

50:48 - roxanne clement
so cool. can't wait

50:55 - @teachwithsoul
Lots of teachers and Admin are using Remind in place of weekly bulletin or newsletter. They send out a link to a google doc that anyone can access!

51:39 - Diane Peterson 1
Like it @teachwithsoul!

51:45 - Eileen
Sounds like it would be very valuable especially if students cannot see our acct. information.

51:53 - @teachwithsoul
@diane :)

51:59 - Carla 2
You can also embed Remind into blogs and websites. Our teacher have done that so that their websites are updated automatically.

52:00 - Peggy George
that's a great workaround to allow for collaboration on sending out reminders! create a shared account with a gmail address

52:12 - Sheri Edwards
Good tip Lisa @teachwithsoul

52:37 - Tiziana Angiolini from Italy
Thanks a lot. Very engaging and usefull :)

53:04 - Sheri Edwards
What is the process again for under 13?

53:30 - @teachwithsoul
Remember again you can text your "class" code to 81010! You join a class immediately

53:56 - Jordan Pedraza
Thanks so much everyone!
