Hot off the presses! Remind (formerly Remind101), one of our favorite tools for connecting classrooms with students and parents, has added a new component that allows for student and parents to interact with one of four stamps (including a check, star and a question mark) to allow for simplistic polling. The functionality is called “stamps.”
I wasn’t able to get the updated app on my Android phone, but, according to their announcement, students and parents that accept Remind 101 reminders via the app can now interact with one of the stamps in response.
While I do worry about Remind moving away from their clean, “just works” functionality, they promise that the service works as it always had, which means even parents with feature phones (um, “dumb phones”) can still use this amazing service.
