Classting is a free social media platform similar to Remind. I have had very limited exposure to using this application. However, it comes highly recommended by many sources and I was impressed upon demoing it. Just as the others we have discussed, it helps connect teachers with students and parents, classmates with each other (great feature), anytime, anywhere. This one offers some exciting additional features that one like Remind do not.
- It lets you create your personal classroom community just by generating an invitation code or URL with a single click.
- All the personal information is kept private and each class member is protected.
- Deliver announcements
- Send and receive unlimited messages, media files, and documentation.
This makes a great tool for teachers, leaders, and stakeholders alike. It keeps communication simple, streamlined, and FREE! Although the app is recommended for K-12, I feel that this app is best utilized in grades 6-12 due to the collaboration features, which make it a bit unique from the others we have discussed.
