Faculty Tricks

Here's the deal. I have one member of my faculty who collects all the students' cell phones and puts them on a table in the front of the class. Maybe 35 phones, just sitting there.

I want to get all the phone numbers. Then, in the middle of the class. I want to send a text to all the phones simultaneously.  How cool would that be! I don't know how to do it--but I'm investigating.

  1. I can't help you with getting the phone numbers, but you could use Twilioto send all the texts for well under a dollar, including testing, with a small shell, Ruby, or Python script. (I'm not affiliated with Twilio in any way, but I like their service.)
