REMIND Partners With PBS And QUIZLET To Expand Learning Beyond The Classroom
Remind, a K-12 communication platform that allows teachers, parents, and students to connect via their mobile devices, today announced a partnership with PBS, Quizlet and other leading education companies. The new partnership feature, Share on Remind, is an effort geared toward connecting educators and students with the resources that help them teach and learn.
Used in more than 90% of U.S. public school districts, Remind currently supports 27 million monthly active users, including more than half of all full-time teachers in the country. Now, with the Share on Remind feature, educators can share resources from PBS, Quizlet and more with students and parents with a single click of a button.
On PBS LearningMedia, which more than one million educators used last month, a new button on each resource page will enable them to share free PBS resources directly with parents and students via Remind. Through this innovative effort, PBS will offer educators the opportunity to seamlessly share contextualized educational public media materials such as videos and interactives, further strengthening the school-to-home connection. Research has shown that the more connected these two important components of a student’s life, the more educators, parents, and students themselves benefit.
“Our goal at PBS is to support the entire learning ecosystem–including kids, parents, and educators—by catalyzing learning moments,” said Sara Schapiro, Vice President, PBS Education. “This new partnership with Remind is an important step in helping us deliver on that commitment by allowing educators to easily share resources with parents to strengthen learning at home, bridging home and school to propel learning outcomes for kids across America.”
On Quizlet, the Share on Remind button will similarly allow teachers to share content study sets.
“By partnering with Remind, we’re helping teachers share resources with students more efficiently. That means they can spend more time teaching and less time managing technology,” said Andrew Sutherland, Quizlet founder and CTO. “That’s a win for teachers, Remind and Quizlet.”
Along with PBS and Quizlet, Remind partners include Duolingo, Brilliant, Educents, Educreations, Flipgrid, Front Row, Kaizena, NearPod, Newsela, Quizizz, and Signup.
“For many educators, giving every student the opportunity to succeed means extending learning beyond the classroom—often with digital content,” said Remind CEO Brian Grey. “To date, Remind has already delivered nearly 1 billion documents, links and other resources. Making it even easier for educators to share these materials with students and parents is the clear next step, and we’re excited to partner with some of the leading companies in education.”
