Technology often is blamed as one of the main culprits behind kids paying less attention to school work and more time devoted to sending text message or checking their Facebook status.
So, it is always a pleasant and welcomed surprise when a company turns the table on gadgets, smart phones and tablets and uses them for the greater good of education.
And that's exactly what Remind101.com does.
This online, free service allows teachers to safely and securely text kids regarding something as simple as a homework assignment or even maintain open lines of communication with moms and dads so that keeping tabs on their children is a pain free undertaking.
What makes Remind101.com so engaging is its aptitude to take something today's generation latches on to (technology) and integrates schoolwork, perhaps something that don't enjoy as much, as part of the mix. It also should be noted that the advisory board that lends credibility and insight into how the product and service should work is comprised of teachers, and what better group of professionals would be better served to critique the good and bad of Remind101.com than those who will ultimately use it the most. One of the more endearing and competent aspects of a company, product or service is not only understanding the demographic they're trying to appeal to but also having the right people in the right places when it comes to researching and developing.
