Classroom and Teaching Technology Update

This guide looks at some of the teaching technology available for you to use.

Using Teams in the Classroom

Microsoft Teams is cloud-based team collaboration software that is part of the Office 365 suite of applications. Using the Microsoft Teams platform, teachers and students can communicate one-on-one or in groups:

  • Faculty can send messages and announcements to individual students or whole classes at once.
  • Individual users can create private chats with other users.
  • With the Channels feature, faculty can use built-in Skype technology or participate in video discussions.
  • Faculty can use OneNote Class Notebooks to share notes and files and give feedback to individual students. Notebooks can also be shared between faculty members to collect and curate resources, collaborate and develop new documents, and share professional development materials.
  • Faculty can use the Teams assignment management tools to create, assign, collect, and give feedback on assignments.
  • Faculty can use popular education apps inside Teams, including Kahoot!, Nearpod, Quizlet, and Flipgrid. If a particular app will be used frequently by a group, you can add a designated tab to a channel just for that app, so users can get to it quickly.
