Sending anything Google through Remind App (Instructional Technology)

I cannot explain my enthusiasm for this discovery. Seriously, I felt like I found a loophole- and who doesn’t love a loophole?! Here’s how this came about…

I gave a test and it went terribly. Basically, technology failed me, and the test I gave didn’t update (I may or may not have pressed “save”). It was awful- the test was invalid. <insert panic-mode here> We needed a retest right away. Because I have lots of supportive parents, I needed to get this information out to them as soon as possible– like… before the kids had a chance to text them that they failed the test!

As you probably know, Remind notifications have a text limit because it arrives as a text message. For this instance, I needed to send more of a “letter” with hyperlinked resources than a short “text”. I went to my go-to: Google Slides (BTW- I’m addicted to Slides). There, I wrote my letter, added hyperlinks for resources, and made it pretty. Then I used the Google Share Settings to add the link to my Remind text! It worked! Voila! Parents (and students) received my message about the retest before the buses left the middle school! #Success 

The link above is a step-by-step guide displaying how to send your Google product through the Remind App 🙂

Happy Reminding!
